Daly back with a bang

10 March 2011 10:00
Jon Daly scored an injury-time winner on his comeback from hernia surgery to secure Dundee United's third Clydesdale Bank Premier League win in little over a week - 2-1 against Hamilton. Daly slotted home almost two minutes after the 90 minutes following a clever pass from David Goodwillie, who had levelled just before the interval with a close-range finish from a Barry Douglas corner. Flavio Paixao had claimed a richly-deserved opener for a Hamilton side featuring just one natural defender. Dougie Imrie swung the ball beyond the far post from the right wing and Simon Mensing headed over the head of Dusan Pernis into the goalmouth, where Scott Robertson and Paixao challenged in the air. One of them headed the ball into the roof of the net, with Paixao running away to celebrate. And the SPL`s bottom club were denied a strong penalty claim in the latter stages of the second half when Timothy van der Meulen brought down Imrie. The Hamilton player looked at least a yard inside the box but referee Willie Collum awarded a free-kick.
