Match Preview

Alex out for Accies Experienced midfielder Alex Neil is the only absentee for Hamilton as they face up to Ross County at New Douglas Park. Manager Billy Reid made six changes in midweek when his side faced Partick Thistle and he is promising more changes against the Dingwall men. Reid said: "I am still trying to establish what our strongest starting XI is and the changes in midweek gave me a look at some players that had not featured so far. "There will be changes for this game as whilewe have won our three games we have not quite hit the heights that we can yet. "We are getting close to the winning mentality that I want and another triumph in this game takes us further along that road." County's entire first-team squad have trained all week ahead of the clash with Hamilton. However, manager Derek Adams may not risk starting with Darren McCormack, Sam Morrow and Garry Wood as they are short on recent match action. Defender Marc Fitzpatrick is expected to go straight back into the action after missing out last weekend. Adams watched on Tuesday night as Hamilton defeated Partick Thistle in the Ramsdens Cup. He said: "There is a lot of strength in the Accies side and a lot of players who have SPL experience under their belts. They played some good stuff in that match but it is an encounter we are looking forward to."

Match Report

Five-star Accies hammer County Hamilton put 10-man Ross County to the sword 5-1 and went top of the embryonic Scottish First Division table. Mark McLaughlin opened the scoring after good work from Douglas Imrie. A close range volley from Ali Crawford doubled the advantage six minutes before the interval. A James Chambers penalty three minutes later put the result beyond doubt after Jonathan Flynn was dismissed for a professional foul on Matthew Paterson. Paterson added a fourth in the 57th minute when he converted Imrie's right-wing cross. Ross County pulled one back 13 minutes from time when Kurtis Byrne volleyed home Scott Morrison's cross from six yards. But Hamilton scored again in injury time when Grant Anderson finished impressively from 18 yards after collecting Simon Mensing's pass.
