Craig Halkett’s header just three minutes from time ensured Hearts completed a comeback result against Hamilton, coming from 2-0 down to draw 2-2
Hamilton got things off to a dream start against Hearts. Marios Ogkmpoe was left unmarked in the box and he put an effort past Zdenek Zlamal in the Jambos goal.
He would soon have the chance to make it two for him and Accies. The forward stepped up to hit a penalty after being fouled in the box by Sean Clare, firing Accies into a two-goal lead.
It was all going so well before Jamie Hamilton received a red card for handball. This all occurred inside the opening 20 minutes and set the stage for a huge remaining 70.
Hearts pressed and probed and got one back in the second half through Jamie Walker. They would equalise in the final minutes of the match through a Halkett header which cannoned in off the underside of the bar.
It salvaged a point for the Jambos but they remain bottom, whilst Accies stay in 11th. Some fans have reacted to Hearts’ 2-2 Accies draw.
Great point, we’re back 🇱🇻

That's it then.
As painful as it is, once again we shot in our foot.
We needed to win this to keep the hope alive. We couldn't. We can't pretend to be too good to go down if we play this way. Championship is gonna be really tough too.#HMFC #HHGH

Might have escaped relegation today, but this result hardly helps us

At least it's a point but unfortunately some fans will see that as a good thing. Stendel really needs to change how we are playing and quick otherwise we will go down
Worked against Rangers but every team now knows how we play and just knocks the ball over our back line to score
