Hamilton match preview

Hamilton Academical vs. Ayr United

Premier Sports Cup - Group E

Tuesday 20th July 2021. Kick-off 6pm

Tonight, the Honest Men square up to Championship opponents for the first time this season when David Hopkin’s side travel to face Hamilton Academical in the Premier Sports Cup. With four points from their opening two group stage fixtures, United will be looking for a positive result at the Fountain of Youth Stadium ahead of what is shaping up to be a decisive match at home to Falkirk on Saturday.

 

Elsewhere in Group E this week, the Bairns travel to take on Edinburgh City tomorrow night (Wednesday).

Opposition

Hamilton Academical’s seven year Premiership stay ended in May when three points from their last six matches condemned Brian Rice’s side to 12th place and relegation. They have started this season with six points from six following wins at Edinburgh City and Falkirk. Aidan Nesbit had fired the Bairns in-front just after half-time at the Falkirk Stadium on Saturday but after Gary Miller was sent-off for the home side, Ronan Hughes from the penalty spot and Jamie Hamilton gave Accies all three points in the last 10 minutes of the game.

Team News

Nick McAllister is the only player definitely ruled out through injury and we are hopeful that he will take some part in training towards the end of this week. Michael Moffat has also returned to training after isolating.  

The Manager Says:

Hamilton have started really well getting two wins on the board. They came down from the Premiership and will have real aspirations of going straight back up so it will be an extremely tough game. Our motivation is absolutely clear though, we know that a win will put us top of the group and that is what we are fully focused on. We enjoyed Tuesday night, the performance was much better and the players looked a lot more comfortable. I think the return of our fans helped us and we are delighted that we will have a travelling support there tonight.

Head to Head

Ayr United wins: 54

Draws: 41

Hamilton wins: 59

 

Tuesday is the 155th meeting of Ayr United and Hamilton and the twelfth in the League Cup. It is five league cup wins apiece in the head-to-head with one draw: the sides shared eight goals in August 1962.

 

Last Meeting: The sides were also drawn together in the League Cup last season. Accies bounced back from an embarrassing 3-1 defeat at Annan to defeat the Honest Men 2-1. Marios Ogkmpoe opened the scoring for the hosts before a long-range Charlie Trafford strike doubled their advantage before the break. United finished the game strongly but Michael Moffat’s 68th minute goal proved only a consolation.

 

Team: Sinisalo; Muirhead, Roscoe, Baird, Miller (Hewitt); Murdoch Chalmers, McCowan; Zanatta, McKenzie (Smith), Moffat
