Craig Halts Accies' Run


HAMILTON 1 LIVINGSTON 1THE green, green grass of home may be made of plastic for Hamilton but Acciesdefender Mark McLaughlin insists it should always mean three points for histeam.

However, he was left disappointed yesterday when a resurgent Livvy strolled offNew Douglas Park's astro-turf pitch after putting a dent in Hamilton's titlebid by snatching a point and spoiling their 100-percent league record.

Steven Craig cancelled out Hamilton player-assistant manager Stuart Taylor'sopener but, despite maintaining their unbeaten record and other results goingtheir way,McLaughlin said the Hamilton dressing room was downbeat after thefinal whistle.

'Everyone in there is gutted we did not play well,' said the defender. 'Livvywere the better team over the 90 minutes, where we were disappointing.

'Playing on the astro-turf gives us an advantage and we feel we should beatevery team who we come up against on it.

'We know we will have to do much better than today next time out.' A tentativestart from both teams was only interrupted after nine minutes when MarkGilhaney picked out Accies on-form striker Richard Offiong,but his hitch kickwas never going to be much danger to Livvy's Polish keeper Marius Liberea.

Minutes later, however, the visitors almostsnatchedthe lead. Graham Dorrens floated in a fine cross and Craig headed just past.

But Livvy were on the back foot again and were lucky to survive as firstLiberea did well to block at the feet of Offiong before Tom Parratt nodded wideof the target in the follow-up.
