Hamilton worry over Mark McLaughlin injury

McLaughlin was stretchered off in the draw with Kilmarnock

Hamilton Accies are waiting to hear the full extend of the injury picked up by defender Mark McLaughlin in the 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock.

McLaughlin was taken to hospital after falling over advertising hoardings.

"I don't know how severe it is, I'll go up and visit him in the hospital and see how he is," said Hamilton manager Billy Reid.

"I don't have a clue what's wrong with him. I just saw him getting taken away on a stretcher. Hopefully he is okay."

Kilmarnock took the lead through Conor Sammon before the visitors had Jamie Hamill sent off for a second yellow card that the Hamilton manager even conceded was "slightly harsh".

Mickael Antoine-Curier scored a late equaliser and Reid revealed that he had given the striker, who came on as an early substitute, a rollicking before the goal.

"I've always said that Curier will score goals for this football club, but he has a bit to go in terms of his whole match fitness," he said.

"Before the goal, I had a wee go at him because he wasn't doing enough, but he wasn't the only one and he has come up trumps with a great strike.

"It's going to take time to get his sharpness back. But, to be fair to him, I had a go, he answered it and you could see his passion for the club at the end as he tried to get a winner."
