Last Time at New Douglas Park


Hamilton 1-0 Dunfermline
Sat, 4th Dec 2021

A decision by Referee David Munro to award Hamilton a penalty on the hour mark and reduce Dunfermline to ten men by sending off captain Graham Dorrans for a hugely doubtful hand-ball changed this important meeting between the teams.

At the second of two Hamilton corners, Mihai Popescu rose to head the setpiece on target but Dorrans cleared off the line. Then from the second corner the on loan Hearts got his head on the cross again, the ball came back off the right goalpost and then follow up was deemed to be stopped illegally and Dorrans was sent off for hand ball on the line. A decision that video replays would confirm wrong.



David MOYO stepped up and his right foot did the business to shoot the Accies ahead from the penalty spot. 1-0.
