Hamilton V Falkirk at New Douglas Park - Match Preview

Neil boosted by Kilday return

Hamilton include defender Lee Kilday in their ranks to face visitors Falkirk after a two month injury absence, however Ryan Finnie misses out through a groin problem.

Stephen Hendrie and James Keatings both need to satisfy player/manager Alex Neil that they are fit enough to be included as the Accies look to keep control of top spot.

Neil said: "We have Dundee breathing down our necks and the best way to stay above them is to win games. Falkirk also have ambitions to get above us so know that we are in for a hard afternoon.

"We won 2-1 at their place and a repeat of that would be great."

Falkirk head to New Douglas Park determined to pull to within three points of the leaders and not fall nine points behind them, however striker Phillip Roberts cannot help their cause as he is suspended after being dismissed against Falkirk last weekend.

A broken metatarsal keeps Ollie Durojaiye out and David McCracken is tipped for a return to action as Jonny Flynn has picked up an ankle knock.

Technical director Alex Smith said: "We have a good record at Hamilton and want to keep that going with a win. If we do then we are right back into things at the top of the table."
