Dunfermline’s Lochead picked up the ball on the the edge of the box and cut inside but the shot was dealt with easily by the Hamilton shot stopper, Robbie Thomson.
One of Accies better chances came midway through the first half. Marc Kelly dribbled in and out of Dunfermline defenders and hit the ball towards the bottom corner, but the keeper pulled off a terrific save to keep the scores level.
The teams went in level at half time. It was a close first half with the ball being contested in the midfield but there were no real chances created for either side to take the lead.
