Match Preview

Calderwood planning ahead Colin Calderwood hopes to mould his Hibernian team into shape in the final six matches of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League campaign in order to achieve more next season. Hibs finished fourth last term but a poor start contributed to the departure of John Hughes in October and Calderwood's appointment. Calderwood won two of his first 17 games in charge as his side struggled towards the foot of the table, before a run of five straight wins resurrected Hibs' season. However, the turnaround was not enough to clinch a place in the top six and Hibs enter Sunday`s match with bottom club Hamilton seeking to finish the season with a flourish. Calderwood said: "We don't have the excitement of being in the top six, but we've got lots to play for - only for ourselves. We've got to look after what we do. "We've got to be professional and we've got to build on the momentum and the run we're on. We want to finish as positively as we can. "It will be a good examination of our professionalism and also the level that we can achieve and that's what really interests me in the games coming up." Due to the SPL split, which occurs after Sunday`s match, Hibs can place seventh at best. Calderwood, though, insists there is plenty to play for this term, including finding combinations in defence, midfield and attack which can take Hibs forward next term. Some members of Calderwood's squad - 14 of whom are out of contract - will also be playing for deals away from Easter Road, having been told they are surplus to requirements. Calderwood is eager to discover the personalities in his dressing room, with winning all-important. He added: "I'm looking at what my team can produce. I want us to be on the front foot and displaying talents that would be good indications for a better season next year. "The five games after this weekend we've got to set ourselves individual goals and we'll do that. "It will be an education for everyone and we want to see a team evolve out of this situation." Hibs have just one new injury concern. Matt Thornhill has been ruled out for the remainder of the season with a knee injury. The midfielder suffered a medial ligament injury in last weekend's SPL win at Aberdeen. Tomas Cerny believes Hamilton must cling to the small hope of retaining their Clydesdale Bank Premier League status until relegation is confirmed. Accies head into the weekend action 12 points adrift of nearest rivals St Mirren at the bottom of the table. Billy Reid's men have won just two games all season but Cerny insists they must at least attempt to finish what has been a difficult campaign on a high. He said: "I can't talk for the other guys but I know that we will try to win every game. There are still games to go and, although it's very, very small, there is still a chance to stay up. "While there is still this chance, we will just try to win as many games as possible and try to stay up." Hibs are an example of a team who successfully transformed their own fortunes but Cerny concedes Hamilton have probably left it too late. The goalkeeper added: "The problem is the number of games, there are not many games left. At the very least, we want to finish the season strongly and get some results before the end of the season." Hamilton will take inspiration from last week's performance against Rangers, which saw the Scottish champions scrape a 1-0 win after Accies had missed a penalty, but the outcome summed up their season so far. Cerny said: "That game was last week, we have trained all week and I don't think anyone is thinking about that game anymore. We are just disappointed with how things have gone. "We have played well but just haven't managed to score goals in a lot of the games. It's happened so many times this season and it's really disappointing but all we can do is just keep working and try to win the next game." Cerny admits his own future remains unclear until the club's position is resolved. He said: "I have one more year left here at Hamilton. I'll have to sit down with the manager and chairman and talk about the future here at the club and what's going to happen next year. "I don't want to talk about it now because this season is not finished. I'll finish the season and see where we are and then maybe talk about it." David Elebert is a doubt for Hamilton with a hamstring injury. Boss Reid has one or two other unnamed players carrying knocks, while Mark McLaughlin and Martin Canning are both sidelined.

Match Report

Accies shock Hibs Hamilton boosted their slim survival prospects at Easter Road with their third win of the Clydesdale Bank Premier League season, beating Hibernian 2-1 James Chambers' ninth-minute strike and a Liam Miller own-goal handed the bottom side a 2-0 half-time lead and they held on despite Akpo Sodje pulling one back after 66 minutes. The result, sparked by livewire Nigel Hasselbaink, who laid on the opener, was Hamilton's first win at Easter Road since January 1987 and saw them reduce the deficit at the foot of the table to nine points. Eighth-placed Hibs had opportunities - Francis Dickoh hit the bar with a header and missed two others - but suffered just a second loss in 10 games. With five matches remaining, Hamilton will need to continue to show all the battling characteristics which earned them victory today. They also must end their season-long run without a home win and beat nearest rivals St Mirren on May 1. Like Accies, Hibs were haunted by the prospect of relegation until a run of five straight wins - including a 2-1 victory at New Douglas Park - lifted Colin Calderwood's side to safety. Fewer than 100 Hamilton fans made the journey east to Edinburgh, but after nine minutes they had reason to be optimistic that their side could claim a first win at Easter Road since 1987 and enhance their survival prospects. Hasselbaink, operating alone up front, drifted wide to the left and ran at Francis Dickoh. The striker, nephew of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, kept running, Dickoh unable to make a tackle, before evading his marker on the byline and cutting the ball back for Chambers to tuck in his first Accies goal. Hasselbaink then fluffed a good chance after 17 minutes, missing a simple tap-in from Chambers' through ball. Dickoh almost made amends for his defensive failings, but his header from David Wotherspoon's corner was well saved by Tomas Cerny. Hibs looked vulnerable in defence but were beginning to make inroads in attack and Dickoh should have equalised but headed Miller's cross from the right over. Lee Kilday hit the bar with a header from Dougie Imrie's corner, but Accies did go two up after being granted another set-piece opportunity when Sodje fouled Hasselbaink. Sodje attempted to clear Alistair Crawford's inswinging free-kick with a header which ricocheted back off Miller and dribbled into the net after 34 minutes. Dickoh then headed onto the bar from Callum Booth's corner, but Hibs faced a two-goal half-time deficit and manager Colin Calderwood replaced Victor Palsson with Martin Scott. Hibs spent the second half camped in Hamilton's half but struggled to break down the visitors until the 66th minute. Callum Booth's long cross-field ball found Sodje racing through and he tucked a cool finish beneath Cerny. Hibs continued to press and Derek Riordan missed a half chance before Cerny scrambled Booth's deflected cross round for a corner. Hibs continued to press forward and Sodje had a strike which deflected over and from the resulting corner Paul Hanlon twice was denied on the line, Cerny collecting the loose ball. Hamilton were forced deep to protect their lead and Riordan flashed a shot off target and referee Brian Winter turned down two hopeful Hibs appeals for handball in the area. Substitute Grant Gillespie cleared a Sodje header off the line before Simon Mensing headed narrowly wide of his own goal from Mark Brown's long ball forward. Imrie was booked for tangling with Wotherspoon at the edge of area as Riordan stepped up to take a stoppage-time free-kick which was retaken. Cerny held the shot and Hamilton survived to claim a vital victory.
