Time for me to go. Good night.

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes

"We had four, five gilt-edged chances and we've got players that are normally a bit more prolific than that. Fair play to Hamilton, they've thoroughly deserved to win tonight. We lacked quality in both boxes."

Hamilton Academical 1-0 Aberdeen

The first half ends with Ali Crawford testing Jamie Langfield from the edge of the Aberdeen box. That's been fairly typical of the hosts' approach in the first half while the Dons have looked shaky at the back. Tony Andreu's fifth goal of the season separates the sides at the midway point.

Couple of minutes plus stoppage time until half-time. Accies deservedly in front after such a strong opening.


Aberdeen's best attack so far. David Goodwillie crosses for strike partner Adam Rooney, who cannot get a hold of his shot, allowing Hamilton to scramble clear.
