  2. Post update

    Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes

  11. TEXT 80295

    David in Fochabers: "Aberdeen are missing Russell Anderson. At 36 he is still an excellent defender."

  14. Post update

    Two minutes left at New Douglas Park.


    Michael McGovern does well to keep out Lawrence Shankland's header out. Shankland tries again with a shot but the Hamilton keeper will not be beaten.

    Aberdeen threaten at a free-kick but a foul by a Dons man breaks up the attack, much to the visitors' frustration.

  18. Post update

  19. Post update

    Although Hamilton are sitting proudly at the top of the Scottish Premiership, they have to work hard at bringing in fans. Click the 'Highlights' tab to watch BBC Scotland's Brian McLauchlin speak to the club about what they are doing to attract more supporters.

    Tonight's attendance is one of their best so far this season at over 4,000.

  20. CLOSE!

    Aberdeen have another free-kick and Niall McGinn goes higher with this attempt but it does not dip enough and sails over.

  21. CLOSE!

    Niall McGinn's free-kick bounces just wide of the Hamilton goal.


    Mikey Devlin takes out Peter Pawlett and the Hamilton man is booked.

  23. CLOSE!

    Aberdeen substitute Niall McGinn heads Willo Flood's cross across the face of goal but Adam Rooney completely misses the ball and the chance is gone.

  24. Post update

    Hamilton Academical make their first substitution with Darian MacKinnon coming on for Danny Redmond.

  25. Post update

    Ryan Jack is off balance as he sends a shot off target. It's been that kind of night for Aberdeen.

  26. Post update

    Another changed for Aberdeen Niall McGinn is on for Barry Robson. Can the Northern Ireland forward turn this match around for the Dons?

  27. Post update

    Andreu (right) has been the difference for Hamilton so far this evening.

    Hamilton Academical players celebrating
  28. Post update

    An hour gone and Hamilton are flying. So much confidence in their play and they look hungry for more goals.

  29. Post update

    That will be a huge frustration for Aberdeen, who were beginning to build momentum and pressure just before that second Hamilton goal.

  30. GOAL

    Hamilton Academical 2-0 Aberdeen (Andreu)

    It's a second for Accies and a second for Tony Andreu, who sweeps the ball into the net from Danny Redmond's low cut-back. Superbly worked goal.

  31. Post update

    Mark Reynolds' header from Barry Robson's free-kick loops onto the roof of the Hamilton net.

  32. Post update

    Danny Redmond has a pop at goal from around 30 yards and Aberdeen goalkeeper Jamie Langfield palms then catches the ball on the bounce.

  34. Post update

    Aberdeen have made a change for this second half. Peter Pawlett has replaced Andrew Considine.

  35. KICK-OFF

  36. Post update

  37. #bbcscotfootball

    Stuart Morrison: "Hamilton's 'physical' approach being indulged by some generous refereeing by Clancy #bbcscotfootball"


    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.

  39. Post update

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

  40. CLOSE!

    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.


    Aberdeen midfielder Willo Flood is booked for dissent as the rain lashes down in Lanarkshire.

  42. Post update

    The Aberdeen defence continues to look vulnerable every time Hamilton come forward. Dougie Imrie crosses for Mickael Antoine-Curier and the Dons backline is relieved to see his header bounce into the grasp of Jamie Langfield.


    Hamilton forward Mickael Antoine-Curier juggles the ball just inside the Aberdeen box and claims for a handball against Barry Robson but referee Kevin Clancy is unmoved,

  44. #bbcscotfootball

    Scott Boobis: "Hamilton play with so much pace and composure at times. Very confusing to watch. #bbcscotfootball"

  45. TEXT 80295

    Gordon in Fraserburgh: "As a Dons man - hats off to Accies, brilliant goal and I can see why their top of the league."


    Another Aberdeen chance and another fine save from Michael McGovern. This time David Goodwillie gets beyond the Hamilton defence and tries to place the ball past the keeper but McGovern spreads himself well.


    Aberdeen forward Adam Rooney gets the break of the ball to put him clean through on goal but Michael McGovern positions himself well to make the save.

  48. Post update

    Andreu was well placed to apply the finish needed for Hamilton's opener.

  49. Post update

    Accies player-manager Alex Neil issues instructions from the technical area. He has left himself on the bench again this evening and says he will only he come on if he feels his presence is needed.

  50. Post update

    The Aberdeen defence looked rather uncertain in the build-up to that goal and Ash Taylor was too indecisive before Hamilton really applied the pressure.

  51. GOAL

    Hamilton Academical 1-0 Aberdeen (Andreu)

    Hesitancy in the Aberdeen defence allows Hamilton in with Dougie Imrie lifting the ball across after Jamie Langfield commits himself and Tony Andreu knocks the ball into the empty net.

  52. Post update

    Tony Andreu chips the ball across the Aberdeen box and Mickael Antoine-Curier is at too tight an angle to direct his shot on target, allowing the Dons to clear. Good attack from the hosts.

  53. Post update

    Now Aberdeen press and Willo Flood's inswinging corner is missed by goalkeeper Michael McGovern but the visitors cannot capitalise.

  54. Post update

    There's a lot of pace to the Hamilton attack and, on a couple of occasions now, Aberdeen have found themselves in retreat.

  55. Post update

    Early push from Hamilton as Danny Redmond lifts the ball into the path of Dougie Imrie but Mark Reynolds is across quickly to clear.

  64. Post update

    Hamilton Academical manager Alex Neil

    "The team's done exceptionally well. We've got to continue to perform as well as we have. The Celtic game's done and dusted. That's completely out the memory now. We've got to force a pattern of play on Aberdeen and try and win this game."
