Hamilton’s match with Hearts this weekend is crucial for Accies says coach Guillaume Beuzelin after Aberdeen inflicted a 3-1 defeat upon his side.

They move up to third whilst Beuzelin and Hamilton have been left with some thinking to do in 11th. Accies face a massive game against Hearts at Tynecastle on Saturday now and there are fears over Brian Easton after he was subbed against Aberdeen with a shoulder injury.

There were various elements of the Dons match that the Hamilton coach wasn’t happy with but it has set the stage for a huge game in Gorgie. If Brian Rice’s side are beaten, they will fall to bottom.

“First half I thought we were horrendous,” said Beuzelin. “If we want to compete against that calibre of team we need to do the basics right.  The manner in which we concede those three goals is very disappointing from our point of view.

“They showed us today they wanted it more which makes it disappointing for us. Saturday is massive. A team like Hearts just below us in the table, this game is huge.

“We need to be prepared for a massive fight on Saturday. Brian Easton went to hospital but we don’t know the gravity of his injury.

“You can clearly see we need a leader in our team. Somebody needs to step up because he’s a massive miss for us.”
