Match Preview

Brown warning for Dons Manager Craig Brown has warned his Aberdeen side against complacency when Hamilton, the Clydesdale Bank Premier League's bottom club, visit Pittodrie on Tuesday night. Aberdeen have been rejuvenated since Brown was installed as boss - winning seven and losing four of 12 games in all competitions - and now sit 12 points above bottom club Accies. The ninth-placed Dons defeated fourth-placed Kilmarnock 5-0 last Saturday, but Brown warned that victory over Hamilton, five points adrift at the foot of the table, is far from a certainty. The former Scotland manager said: "They're a better team than their results have been indicating. One thing about them is they're a committed team - they'll fight, they'll scrap, it will not be pretty. "They'll play a very determined game. We have to be up for that. "Because we scored five goals on Saturday we can't expect just to go out and think it will automatically happen. "There's got to be an urgency and a determination to continue the good form we had on Saturday." The result against Killie was all the more pleasing for Brown following the 2-1 defeat to Motherwell, the club he abandoned for Pittodrie in December. He added: "Prior to the fixtures against two teams in the top five, Kilmarnock and Motherwell, two draws would be acceptable. Not great, but acceptable. "We've actually done better than that (taking three points), so we've got to build on that and make sure we don't slip up against Hamilton." Brown was frustrated by the loss to his former team but conceded Well were the better side last Tuesday night. Hamilton midfielder James Chambers is sure it is only a matter of time before his "unacceptable" performances improve - but the January signing knows time is running out for struggling Accies. Billy Reid brought Irishman Chambers to the Clydesdale Bank Premier League last month along with Aaron Wildig, Mark Carrington and Tom Elliott as the Accies boss tried to turn around their season. But the Lanarkshire side are still looking for their first SPL victory since October and sit five points adrift of St Mirren at the foot of the table. Chambers, who joined from Shamrock Rovers, made his debut in a 2-0 defeat at St Johnstone and returned to the team on Saturday against Motherwell, but was substituted early in the second half of Hamilton's 1-0 loss. "I've loved every minute of it but my two performances to date haven't been good enough, they have been unacceptable," he said. "I know it's going to take a step up from back home. I have confidence in my ability and I will get better, it's just a matter of finding my feet. "But we don't have an awful lot of time." Chambers had not played since the end of the Airtricity League season in November when he arrived at New Douglas Park, but he is not using his fitness as an excuse. "I feel fit, the gaffer has worked me hard, I just think it's a matter of me getting a bit of confidence and getting better," the 24-year-old said. "The pace of the game is a little bit quicker, and I just think everybody on the ball is a lot more comfortable and it's a lot more technical than back home. "I just hope I can put in a few half-decent performances rather than the poor ones I have put in so far. "The manager has been great with me, he has said what he's happy with and what I need to improve on. "He has been brilliant, as have the rest of the coaching staff, it's really up to me now to keep my head down and repay the faith the gaffer has shown in me." Chambers returns to familiar surroundings at Pittodrie having been there when then Dons boss Jimmy Calderwood tried to sign him from Shelbourne. "I was there when I was younger for a couple of weeks," Chambers said. "I was meant to sign and then there was a problem with my club back home. "They wanted compensation and Aberdeen weren't willing to pay for me. So that was dead in the water before it started. "I was 18, I had just left school. It was a blow, but I ended up going full-time with Shelbourne so it wasn't too bad. "I could have been released after three months, so you never know. "But it would have been nice and now I have the opportunity to test myself here."

Match Report

Maguire heaps more misery on Hamilton A Chris Maguire penalty gave Aberdeen a 1-0 win over Clydesdale Bank Premier League strugglers Hamilton. The goal came after 30 minutes after Sone Aluko had been fouled in the box by Jim McAlister and Maguire stepped up to score his ninth goal of the season. Hamilton enjoyed plenty of possession in the second period but were unable to find a way past a resolute home defence. The result heaps further pressure on the Accies, who have not won in the league since October and remain five points adrift of St Mirren at the foot of the table. Aberdeen skipper Paul Hartley and defender Andrew Considine returned from suspension but both had to be content with a place on the bench as Craig Brown stuck with the same side that defeated Kilmarnock 5-0 on Saturday. Accies welcomed back Dougie Imrie from injury and former Don Gary McDonald was also given a start against his former club, with Mark Carrington dropping to the bench and James Chambers missing out. The visitors had an early chance to test Jamie Langfield in the Aberdeen goal when Gavin Skelton found Flavio Paixao, who evaded the challenge of Zander Diamond with a neat touch before curling the ball harmlessly over the crossbar. The Accies would have been encouraged by their lively start but should have fallen behind after 13 minutes when David McNamee crossed for the unmarked Aluko at the back post, only for the Nigerian international to volley wide. The Dons survived a scare of their own after 21 minutes when Imrie's inviting free-kick into the area was headed over by Mickael Antoine-Curier. A slack pass by Rory McArdle gifted the visitors another chance but Imrie fired wide of the target after being released by Antoine-Curier. And with 30 minutes gone Aberdeen had the chance to make the breakthrough when Aluko was fouled in the box by McAlister. With Hartley on the bench, Maguire assumed the spot-kick duties and smashed the ball into the bottom corner past Cerny. The Dons almost doubled their lead two minutes before the break when a fizzing corner from Aluko was headed wide by the unmarked Diamond, who should have at least tested the goalkeeper. Aberdeen almost made the perfect start to the second period when Maguire dispossessed Martin Canning before laying the ball into the path of Robert Milsom, whose shot curled just past the post. Hamilton had an excellent chance to equalise after 50 minutes, but Imrie shot straight at Langfield instead of squaring the ball to Antoine-Curier who would have had the easiest of finishes. Hamilton were enjoying an increasing amount of pressure as the half wore on with the home side introducing Hartley for Derek Young to stem the tide after 63 minutes. The Accies made an attacking change by bringing on striker Nigel Hasselbaink for defender Mark McLaughlin, but the match should have been put beyond doubt when Maguire pounced on a mistake by David Elebert only to fire wide. Maguire spurned another opening with 12 minutes to go when he latched onto Milsom's pass, but his effort squirmed past the post. Vernon drew a smart stop from Cerny before Langfield did well to hold onto Imrie's rasping free-kick at the other end as a frantic and entertaining match came to a close.
