McLaughlin inspires Accies

Mark McLaughlin took his tally to seven for the season as he helped guide Hamilton to a 3-1 win against Dundee in the First Division.

It was the visitors who took the lead, however, thanks to Ryan Conroy's convincing penalty after he was fouled by David Hutton in the 30th minute.

McLaughlin, who recovered from an injury picked up at the weekend to play, then hit back for the Accies five minutes later, converting Daniel Redmond's corner from close range.

And Redmond turned provider again five minutes after the break when Jon McShane headed into the roof of the net from the midfielder's corner.

The result was put beyond doubt seven minutes later when Mark Stewart's tidy finish found the corner of the goal as Dundee missed the chance to close the gap on Ross County at the top of the table.

Accies missing young duo

Hamilton are without Ali Crawford and Stephen Hendrie for the visit of Dundee.

Crawford remains sidelined with a knee injury and Hendrie is on Scotland Under-17 duty.

But defender Mark McLaughlin is available after shaking off a knock picked up in Saturday's fine 4-0 win over Livingston.

Manager Billy Reid said: "We have been playing well away from home as Saturday showed and now it is time to bring that form to our home ground.

"We are entering an exciting phase of the season with two home games and then the Ramsdens Cup final, and beating Dundee would be a great start to that period."

Dundee will again be missing Nicky Riley and Steven Milne through injury.

New Douglas Park was a happy hunting ground for the Dark Blues on their last visit when they ran out 6-1 winners.

Manager Barry Smith said: "That was a fantastic win, however a lot has happened to the Hamilton side since then and I would be quite happy to settle for any win this time.

"They had a great result on Saturday so they will be coming into this game with confidence.

"I am not worried about league positions as I want us to keep winning every game and see what happens."
