Neil still banned for Accies

Hamilton captain Alex Neil misses the visit of Dunfermline as he is serving the final game of a three-match ban.

Jon McShane and Kieran Millar remain out with long-term knee injuries as Billy Reid's men look to build on last Saturday's 2-0 win at East End Park which knocked the Pars out of the Scottish Cup.

Reid said: "I would gladly settle for the same level of performance and the same result but I know that Dunfermline will be going all out to make up for that defeat.

"I could tell afterwards that their manager Jim Jefferies was far from happy with their display, so we are on our guard."

Dunfermline striker Andy Barrowman looks set to miss out.

Barrowman is available after a suspension kept him out of the cup defeat, but he is struggling with an ankle knock.

Andy Geggan's ankle problem will see him miss out as well, but the Pars expect to have Stephen Jordan back after a hamstring problem while Ryan Thomson has shaken off an illness.

East End Park assistant manager Gerry McCabe said: "Last weekend was disappointing but it has gone now so we have to move on.

"We are still involved in the promotion hunt and a win at Hamilton would strengthen that involvement."
