Hamilton   1 - 1   Kilmarnock

Hamilton v Kilmarnock

Highlights - Hamilton 1-1 Kilmarnock

Mickael Antoine-Curier gave Hamilton a hard-earned draw as they came from behind to draw with 10-man Kilmarnock.

Conor Sammon, the striker attracting interest from a number of English clubs, scored his 18th goal of the season, rifling in after 15 minutes.

But Jamie Hamill was sent off after 29 minutes for a second yellow card.

Thomas Cerni's save prevented Mehdi Taouil increasing Killie's lead and substitute Antoine-Curier fired into the far corner after 78 minutes.

And the point moves Accies to within two points of second bottom Hibernian with a game in hand.

Hamilton had handed a debut to Aaron Wildig, the midfielder being given the nod after signing on loan from Cardiff, while Simon Mensing was suspended.

Kilmarnock were without the suspended Alexei Eremenko, but new recruit Willy Aubameyang had to make do with being on the bench.

The visitors had the best of the chances early on and goalkeeper Tomas Cerny did well to intercept a Tim Clancy cross aimed at Sammon.

A Clancy header flashed just wide of the post from close range from Garry Hay's corner.

And their hard work paid off when Mehdi Taouil provided the pass and Sammon was able to shrug off Mark McLaughlin before rifling past Cerny.

Kilmarnock were dealt a blow when Hamill was dismissed after 29 minutes after picking up a second yellow card for a challenge on Paixao.

Both sides made changes moments later, with Accies swapping Nigel Hasselbaink and Gavin Skelton for Antoine-Curier and Damian Casalinuovo, while Rui Miguel was withdrawn for Killie and replaced with new signing Aubameyang.

Casalinuovo had the ball in the back of the net within a few minutes, but the offside flag denied Hamilton the equaliser.

Hamilton emerged for the second half determined to haul themselves back into the game and had a couple of half chances in front of goal.

However, only the efforts of Cerny prevented them from falling further behind when the goalkeeper produced an excellent block to prevent the impressive Taouil's angled drive from hitting the back of the net.

Accies were forced to use their final substitution when McLaughlin injured himself after falling over the advertising hoardings and was replaced with Grant Gillespie before being strapped to a stretcher following several minutes of treatment.

A cross-shot from Dougie Imrie sneaked into the bottom corner as the home side pushed for a leveller, but the assistant referee flagged before the effort had even crossed the line.

There was no mistake when Antoine-Curier hammered the ball home from just outside the penalty box..

Liam Kelly headed over and Sammon had a late attempt saved by Cerni as 10-man Killie were denied a winner.
