Match Report

Source unknown.

The visitors were on the offensive from the start, and were ahead after just six minutes. Martin Canning climbed above Jackson Irvine to meet Ali Crawford's corner and head home.

County manager Jim McIntyre had emphasised the need for his side to keep a clean sheet, but that idea was literally blown apart after six minutes.

Crawford stole in on the left to win a corner and it was his delivery that gave former County Defender Martin Canning the chance to rise and beautifully angle a header into the corner against his former side.

Hamilton continued to press and a second looked likely when Mickael Antoine-Curier broke into the box on the right-hand side.
His beautifully weighted ball across the face of goal was inches away from being buried by Stephen Hendrie.

County came close to getting back on level terms when Michael Gardyne was upended by Canning.

Martin Woods sent a wonderful curling effort from 25 yards only to be denied by an even more impressive save by Michael McGovern, who pushed the ball on to the post.

The County midfielder should have done better when Cardle galloped towards the bye-line.

His delivery found Woods in space in front of goal, but he snatched at it and winced as his effort flew well over.

County grew into the game in terms of possession and had the chances to snatch a point.

Joe Cardle blazed high over the bar when the net beckoned and Paul Quinn seemed certain to score in injury-time only for his composure to desert him as he fired past the near upright with the goal gaping.
