A strong team performance from Accies seen them come away with all 3 points away from home against EKFC Reds. Accies came into the game top of the table with 4 wins from 5 and kept up their impressive form against EK who had won 1 and lost 1.
It was a scrappy affair in the opening stages with the best chance coming from Accies Stuart McIntyre who put a header narrowly wide. The Deadlock was broken on the 17th minute with Cameron Stewart getting on the end of a loose ball to coolly place it in the bottom corner to make it 1-0 Accies.
Not long after this on the 19th minute Accies doubled their lead with Jonathon Banks getting on the end of a long ball rolling it into an empty net after the Goalkeeper slipped when coming to collect the ball.
This gave EK a wakeup call, growing into the game more and more having multiple opportunities including Kieran McGuire’s effort being superbly stopped by Craig Murdoch in the Accies goal.
But, their hard work was undone after a dip of the shoulder from McIntyre allowed him in behind to fire home and make the game seem beyond EK before half time.
