Hamilton forward George Oakley admits he has been left ‘speechless’ following Accies’ 2-2 draw with Ross County.

Accies hit back though, with Lewis Smith and Oakley himself finding the net, which looked likely to seal three points for Brian Rice’s side.

It wasn’t to be though, with Brian Graham rising from the bench to level late on for the Staggies. A draw leaves Hamilton one point off the bottom in tenth with both teams below them, Hearts and St Mirren, having one game in hand each.

Oakley doesn’t quite know how victory alluded Hamilton on Saturday. He said: “I’m a bit speechless if I’m honest. We did so well in the game. First half we had a lot of possession and didn’t really make anything of it.

“We came in at half time and thought ‘they’re there to beat.’ We come out in the second half and get two good goals, but one ball kills us and they end up nicking a draw.

“I thought I was going to be the matchwinner as we’ve been so good defensively this year. We have been hard to beat which I think has been our biggest improvement.

“We’ve came away with a draw but it feels like a defeat. We can’t dwell on it now as you can’t change what’s happened, but you can change what’s going to happen.”
