Match Preview

Double boost for Accies Hamilton have central defenders Mark McLaughlin and Simon Mensing available again for the visit of Raith. Suspension kept the pair out of the 1-0 defeat at Queen of the South that knocked the Accies off top spot last weekend. Winger Willie McLaren is unlikely to feature due to illness and midfielder Alex Neil remains out. Manager Billy Reid is looking for his side to bounce back from the defeat last weekend, he said: "We were really disappointing at Palmerston and I am looking for much better in this game. "Raith are coming here looking to make up for a defeat as well so we have to be much quicker in everything we do if we are to take anything." Raith remain without captain Iain Davidson, who is still struggling with a medial ligament injury. He will stay on the sidelines along with midfielder Ross Callachan, who is set to complete a two-match ban. Manager John McGlynn, who is predicting a close contest, will bring in a trialist goalkeeper to replace Ross Laidlaw on the bench after he suffered a knock in training. "We have been hit by a couple of late sucker punches recently and whilst that can be the nature of football sometimes, it is something we have to guard against," said McGlynn. "This will be another tight game in a season where every minute in every game is tight."

Match Report

Lyle seals point for Hamilton Substitute Derek Lyle's 73rd-minute strike completed his side's comeback as Hamilton came back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 against Raith at New Douglas Park. The away side took the lead on the stroke of half time thanks to John Baird's left-footed strike. Raith doubled their lead after 62 minutes when midfielder Joe Hamill latched on to Brian Graham's pass to send a right-footed strike low past Hamilton goalkeeper Tomas Cerny. The home side started their comeback four minutes later when Greig Spence headed home Ali Crawford's cross, before Lyle equalised with a right-footed effort from 12 yards after good work from Grant Anderson on the right wing. Midfielder James McAllister had the opportunity to complete a remarkable turnaround but his left-footed strike flashed wide in the dying moments.
