Hamilton V Dumbarton - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.


No Fisher for Accies

Hamilton entertain Dumbarton for the second time in three days and the New Douglas Park men will be missing Gary Fisher.

The midfielder is banned after being sent off in Saturday's game that finished 3-2 to the Sons.

Grant Gillespie and Jonathan Routledge return after suspension but captain Alex Neil is struggling with a calf knock and Ziggy Gordon is a doubt with a rib injury.

The Accies have not beaten Dumbarton this season and after falling behind them in the table manager Billy Reid is looking to put that right.

"I cannot fault the players for their effort at the weekend and they deserved better even when we went down to 10 men," he said.

"We will be going all out to move back over Dumbarton with a win."

Dumbarton hope to have striker Garry Fleming available.

The Sons are looking to make it win number four in a row and ease fears of relegation at the expense of the Accies.

Nicky Phinn is a major doubt due to the calf problem that saw him limp off in Saturday's game between the sides, with manager Ian Murray warning his men to be wary of wounded Hamilton.

Murray explained: "This will be a really tough test for as they will have been hurt by our win at the weekend.

"It is a tough ask for part-time players to be playing twice a week against full-time opponents but it would be great if we could keep our run going."
