Accies face another stern test on Saturday when they face Kilmarnock at NDP, kick off 3pm. Accies are in the unusual position of being table toppers, and that's something Alex Neil would love his team to maintain after Saturday's game. Darian MacKinnon will miss the game as he starts a 4 match suspension, while Jesus Garcia Tena (left), who limped off early at Tannadice last weekend, will be given a fitness test to see if he can make it. Stephen Hendrie is available after being ill in midweek and youngsters Darren Lyon and Craig Watson have been added to the squad.

Killie have been in decent form recently and did well to defeat St Mirren last time out. Kilmarnock fans will be housed in the Spice of Life (North) stand as usual and the game will be refereed by Kevin Clancy.

Hamilton are sitting proudly at the top of the table after a fantastic result against Dundee Utd but they go into the game against Kilmarnock as favourites which will bring a different type of pressure. McBookie.com is offering Accies at 1/1 on Saturday with Kilmarnock and the draw both 13/5. Hamilton have also been cut from 4/1 to 2/1 for a Top Six finish. And whilst Alex Neil will not be counting his chickens, the firm is now offering a massive 16/1 that Hamilton will finish bottom of the league.

Last Game

Accies moved to the top of SPFL Premiership on Saturday after this hard earned but well deserved point at Tannadice. In a thrilling game, Accies trailed to an early goal by Nadir Ciftci but fought back when Mickael Antoine-Curier equalised in the 28th minute. Darian MacKinnon was then sent off before play recommenced when he received a second caution for his over zealous celebrations. Accies shocked the Arabs 6 minutes later when Tony Andreu (left) fired home from outside the area. United then had Ciftci ordered off for punching the ball into the net - this was also his second yellow card. United grabbed an equaliser just before half time when defender Jaroslaw Fojut headed home from a corner kick.

 

Post match interviews with Alex Neil and several of his players are available on the Accies Audioboo page.
