Cowdenbeath 1-0 Hamilton: Accies’ poor start to season continues
A first-half strike from Kyle Miller was enough to secure a 1-0 win for Cowdenbeath as Hamilton’s poor start to the campaign persisted at a sodden Central Park.
It took the home side just 12 minutes to brighten a dreich afternoon in the driving rain of Fife. A deep Scott Linton corner was dismally defended by Accies, allowing Miller to slam home from close range. The diminutive midfielder, a constant menace for the Blue Brazil, threatened again minutes later, lashing over the bar from 25 yards.
An Ali Crawford corner which dropped inches past the post provided Hamilton’s best chance of an abject first 45 minutes.
The bizarre sight of Kevin Cuthbert, the Hamilton goalkeeper, striking a free-kick from 25 yards provided some merriment for the modest, albeit noisy, band of travelling fans after the break. However, his drive straight into the wall did little to justify his 80-yard jaunt up the field.
Despite a late rally, which saw Jon McShane force a low save from Thomas Flynn, Billy Reid’s charges could not find an equaliser. And the Accies boss departed down the tunnel to a vitriolic chorus of “you don’t know what you’re doing” from the visiting support.
