Hibernian   1 - 1   Hamilton

Hibs celebrate Derek Riordan's goal

By Clive Lindsay

Marco Paixao gave away a goal and made up for it with the equaliser as he celebrated his 26th birthday by helping Hamilton draw away to Hibernian.

Paixao's slack ninth-minute passback was pounced on by Derek Riordan, who finished well at the second attempt.

Riordan was denied a second from a free-kick by the underside of the crossbar, but Hamilton struck back.

Paixao slipped the ball home after 22 minutes, while he and Hibs' Liam Miller both missed chances to win the game.

It was a deserved point for Accies against a Hibs side dangerous in attack but at times wide open at the back and whose wait for a home win now stretches to eight games since March.

Hibs manager John Hughes had resisted any temptation to make changes following last week's disappointing home draw with Inverness, which meant that new signing Valdas Trakys had to make do with a place on the bench.

Both sides had shown some attacking intent before Hibs took the lead.

Marco Paixao's poor back pass was intercepted by Riordan and, although the forward's initial effort was blocked by goalkeeper Tomas Cerny, he fired home his second from 14 yards.

Accies looked stunned and almost went further behind minutes later when a wickedly dipping and swerving Riordan free-kick from 25 yards struck the bar before bouncing clear with Cerny left motionless.

Colin Nish looked to catch Cerny off his goal-line from close to the halfway line, but his clever snap shot slipped a few yards wide.

Hamilton settled and Marco Paixao crossed for his twin Flavio to head towards goal, but a combination of goalkeeper Mark Brown and defender Sol Bamba clawed the effort from 12 yards off the goal-line.

Marco went one better himself a day before his birthday when Nigel Hasselbaink broke clear and forced the ball through for the Portuguese forward to drive under Brown from 15 yards.

It was Hibs' turn to look shaken by a goal, but they ought to have regained the lead when Riordan's cross found Miller in acres of space just 12 yards from goal, but the midfielder headed high and wide.

Riordan was then denied with a near-post flick by a last-ditch block from Mark McLaughlin, who had returned to the starting line-up following injury along with David Elebert.

Hibs had suffered a blow before half-time when David Wotherspoon was forced off through injury and was replaced in midfield with Danny Galbraith.

The replacement thought he had made an immediate impact when his cross was turned into the net by Nish moments into the second half, but the striker was correctly ruled offside.

Marco Paixao's mixed bag of a birthday continued when Hasselbaink slipped him clear and, with only the goalkeeper to beat, the Portuguese toe-poked the ball wide from 12 yards.

Riordan continued to be Hibs' main threat from long range and sent one effort a few feet wide, while another was saved comfortably by Cerny.

New signing Trakys was thrown up front in place of Nish late on, but Hibs were unable to supply the striker with an opportunity to win the game and end their dismal home run.
