Third Lanark Stadium
01 May 2014
Last Game in April saw an emphatic victory by the Accies as Jimmy Johnstone saw their best set plans destroyed by the on form red and white hoops.
It is always a true honour to go to the old 3rd lanark stadium - in its day seeing 45,455 pectators witness the Scottish Cup  game with Rangers 27th Feb 1954
The dressing room a homage and exquisite reminder that captures this historic club and that of Jimmy Johnstone - the great man himself.
The game started solid as both teams fought for every ball. The challengeswere firm and strong - just what you would expect from both great teams, immersed in history.
A free kick on the outside of the box saw Mooney step up - his inch perfectdiagonal cross, which was met by Daivd Thomson who tapped it to create thenecessary angle to drive it low and past the keeper.
It was not long before Dean banged in another 2 to go into half time 3-0 up..
Half Time: Jimmy Johnstone 0-3 Hamilton Accies
Accies cruising were not wanting a repeat of last Thursday, they came outall guns blazing and Bradley fresh in from the break lined up number 4.
Number 5 was created by the players themselves as they knocked it between themselves in a style that only football wins. there was no arrogance asboth teams remained defiant. This time it was Evan Duffy delivering thecutting blow.
Jimmy Johnstone did not go down with out their consolation goal from the set piece ollowing a foul just outside the box - they were happy to  pickup a perfect shot that saw the Accies keeper tested only for the ball to hit top bag - it was like applying a postage stamp to the top right of anyimportant letter.
Accies still having some fight in them sealed the deal and goal tally at 6 to end a splendid evening as temperature rose to an incredible 21.5 degrees. - surely things can only get better.
Full Time: Jimmy Johnstone 1-6 Hamilton Accies
