Video: Highlights as Hamilton Shock Aberdeen at Pittodrie

Hamilton gave their battle for safety a big shot in the arm with a 2-0 win over Aberdeen at Pittodrie last night.

Brian Rice’s Accies took a 5-0 spanking from Rangers at New Douglas Park at the weekend, but showed no signs of a hangover from that.

Instead, they travelled up to Aberdeen to get a huge three points and breathe further life into their pursuit of safety in the Scottish Premiership.

George Oakley’s goal ensured Hamilton went into half-time 1-0 up.

And they would have no doubt expected Derek McInnes’ men to throw everything at them in the second half.

That proved to be the case, but Accies stood firm – and even added a second through Mickel Miller after the break:

With the win, Hamilton now sit 10th, three points ahead of Dundee, who are in the relegation play-off spot, and seven ahead of St Mirren, who are rock bottom.

Since Rice replaced Martin Canning in January, they’ve picked up two wins and a draw while losing the other two of his five games in charge.

If they can continue that form, you’d expect Accies to still be a Premiership team come next season.
