Dundee U20’s unbeaten run in the SPFL Development League ended after a 2-0 defeat by Hamilton Accies at Links Park. Hamilton took the lead courtesy of Sean McKirdy after 69 minutes and as the Dees pushed for an equaliser, Rakish Bingham added a second late on following a quick free kick.
Nicky Low spotted Accies keeper Robbie Thomson off his line, but the midfielder’s audacious effort from the centre circle was wide of the mark. Low tried to pick out Mark Smith with a quick free kick, but the frontman couldn’t connect with the pass.
Gramoz Kurtaj did well to work space at the top of the Dundee area but his curling effort was just off target. Richard Roy found space inside the Dundee box but the Trialist did well to clear the danger. With 21 minutes played the ball fell to Roy inside the area following a corner, but his snap shot was well off target.
With 26 minutes gone, Kurtaj got in behind the Dundee backline but his low drive was well saved by Calum Ferrie. Yordi Teijse got on the end of a long ball from Kerr Waddell, but failed to trouble Thomson with his left foot shot. As half time approached, Dundee lost Nicky Low to injury and the midfielder was replaced by Sam Dryden.
