Accies produced a sublime performance as they swept Ross County aside with four second half goals. After a good but frustrating first half, Accies got going within two minutes of the second half restart when skipper Martin Canning headed in a corner from Danny Redmond for his second goal in consecutive games, making him the team's joint top scorer. Accies put the game beyond the Highlanders with two penalties by Mickael Antoine Curier (left) and then substitute Jason Scotland wrapped up the win with a close range shot in added on time. Ross County had a player sent off at our second penalty, and also missed one of their own when McGovern saved Brittain's spot kick in the 66th minute.

Accies maintain their hold on second spot in the league, ahead of Dundee United on goal difference.

Interviews with Alex Neil, Michael McGovern, Tony Andreu, Martin Canning and Mickael Antoine-Curier are available on the Audioboo site.

With an excellent crowd watching the match the Accies team to a man performed superbly and none more so than Danny Redmond who was voted the Mueller Wiseman Dairies man of the match. Academy manager George Cairns was on hand to present Danny with his inscribed tankard.

Defender Kieran MacDonald has moved on temporary transfer to Dumbarton until 1st January. The 21 year old was signed from Clyde in June, but has yet to appear in the first team. Alex Neil will monitor his progress with the sons.

The u20s are next in action in the SPFL Development League next Tuesday when we host Rangers, 6pm kick off at NDP.

 

 

The 3rd round draw for the Scottish Communities League Cup was made at Aberdeen on Wednesday and among several cracking ties was a Lanarkshire derby between Accies and Motherwell. The game is scheduled to be played at NDP on Wednesday 24th September and this will be confirmed in due course.

Accies visit Fir Park on Premiership business the following Saturday, so it will be an exciting double header.

Last Game

Accies advanced into the third round of the League Cup with this win over Championship side Alloa Athletic. Goals from Tony Andreu, Martin Canning, Louis Longridge and Eamonn Brophy (left) were enough to see off Barry Smith's side, for whom former Accies man Greig Spence scored a good first half goal. Accies will now "entertain" Motherwell in the last 16.

Post match interviews with Alex Neil, Martin Canning, Grant Gillespie and Louis Longridge are available on the Accies Audioboo page.
