Hamilton V Raith - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game live.
Neil banned for AcciesHamilton will be without influential captain Alex Neil as they host Raith looking for their first home win of the season.Neil begins a three-game suspension, strikers Kieran Miller and Jon McShane remain out with knee injuries and on-loan Kilmarnock midfielder Gary Fisher is struggling after picking up a hefty knock in the 2-1 defeat by Livingston last Saturday.Boss Billy Reid said: "We will miss Alex as he has been showing the form that made him a standout in the SPL but we will just need to get on with things."Things went against us in various ways against Livingston but hopefully we will keep playing in a positive manner and look to get a win over a decent Raith Rovers side."Raith's only injury doubt is Grant Anderson.The former Accies winger picked up a dead leg in a midweek reserve game, with manager Grant Murray advising his chances of playing are improving every hour.Murray has a selection headache of the right kind as strikers Brian Graham, Greig Spence and Pat Clarke are all in goalscoring form.He said: "All three of them scored last week in the draw with Raith Rovers and are fit and available so we are in a great position in terms of having goalscorers to choose from."I have to get the selection right as Hamilton are in a false position in the table and will start moving up soon but hopefully not at our expense."
