Aberdeen   1 - 3   Hamilton

Highlights - Aberdeen 1-3 Hamilton

Aberdeen's miserable run of form continued with a comprehensive defeat by Hamilton at Pittodrie.

An early header by Flavio Paixao gave Accies a deserved half-time lead, which was doubled when James Wesolowski nodded in just after the break.

Dougie Imrie had a goal ruled offside but then won a penalty for Accies, from which Simon Mensing converted.

Richard Foster and Zander Diamond were both sent off for the Dons before Derek Young fired a late consolation.

While the result has no effect on either side's status in the Scottish Premier League, Mark McGhee's side have now only won three of their last 20 matches, while Hamilton continue to cement their reputation in the top-flight.

Jamie Langfield returned in goal for the Dons, with Diamond and Charlie Mulgrew were also included in McGhee's starting line-up.

Hamilton knew a win would ensure they finished above their hosts in the table and made only one change from the side that defeated Falkirk last weekend.

Midfielder James McArthur returned at the expense of Mickael Antoine-Curier, who missed out altogether.

Accies made a terrific start by breaking the deadlock within 60 seconds of kick-off.

A deep corner from Imrie found Flavio Paixao unmarked at the back post and the Portuguese striker calmly nodded the ball beyond Langfield.

The visitors had a strong claim for a penalty waved away after five minutes when Mensing was held back by Foster as he attempted to connect with Flavio Paixao's cross.

A great tackle by Martin Canning prevented Steven MacLean turning home Sone Aluko's inviting delivery as Aberdeen threatened to equalise.

Davide Grassi was booked for a robust challenge on Canning after 26 minutes as the game became increasingly heated.

Marco Paixao almost added a second for Hamilton, but his acrobatic overhead kick went inches over the crossbar.

Hamilton goalkeeper Sean Murdoch was rarely tested during the first period, but he had to look sharp to keep out a low MacLean drive just before the break.

The visitors matched their start to the first half with another early goal in the second as Imrie's cross found Wesolowski, whose angled header gave Langfield no chance.

Hamilton found the back of the net for a third time after 55 minutes when Imrie volleyed home but the goal was disallowed for offside.

However, Accies did increase their lead three minutes later when Mensing coolly slotted the ball past Langfield from the spot after Imrie had been upended by Stuart Duff.

Foster received a second booking on 70 minutes and he was joined up the tunnel by Diamond after he also went into the referee's book for a second time.

The nine men reduced their deficit with five minutes remaining when Young fired past Murdoch and high into the net from the edge of the penalty area.
