  1. That's all folks

    FT: Hamilton 3-3 Hearts

    That's enough from me. You'll be able to see highlights of tonight's game online from after midnight. A six-goal thriller is always worth staying up for.

    We'll do this live text dance again on Wednesday when the superstars of Barcelona roll into Celtic Park.

    Good night.

    SMS Message: The player sourcing has to be questioned, from the top down to the management, to have the right back as top scorer is embarrassing from Anonymous
  3. 'Lots of positives for Hearts'

    FT: Hamilton 3-3 Hearts

    Hearts boss Robbie Neilson on BBC Sportsound:

    "We showed great spirit to come back but we shouldn't be coming away from home scoring three and not winning the game.

    "I thought we passed it well but surface makes it difficult. There were lots of positives. The players worked hard and controlled large portions of the game.

    "I thought it was a terrible tackle [Ali Crawford's challenge on Jamie Walker] but the referee has not called it the way I saw it. We're just lucky Jamie's not seriously injured. Teams target Jamie and when the hits are overboard, it's up to the referee to protect him."

  4. Post update

    FT: Hamilton 3-3 Hearts

    Bjorn Johansen started well for Hearts but faded, while strike partner Tony Watt is always dropping too deep to hurt teams where it matters. The Tynecastle side are yet to find a forward partnership that clicks this season but only leaders Celtic have scored more...

    SMS Message: Hearts haven't played well for over a year. Robbie Neilson is the issue. Boring slow play. Bad signings. No strikers. from Ray
  6. Neilson having words with officials

    FT: Hamilton 3-3 Hearts

    BBC Sportsound host Richard Gordon informs us that Hearts boss has been into the referee's room with a laptop under his arm. The speculation is that he's not too happy about a rash tackle from Ali Crawford late in the game... The Accies midfielder was booked for leading with both feet on Jamie Walker.

    A "leg-breaker" is the verdict from pundit Ryan Stevenson.

  7. Canning frustrated with share of points

    FT: Hamilton 3-3 Hearts

    Hamilton manager Martin Canning on BBC Sportsound:

    "It looked like Dan Seaborne slipped but if you slip and bring someone down it's a penalty.

    "I can't keep saying I'm happy with the way we're performing and that's what I've been saying to the players in the dressing room. We need to be picking up more points when we are playing well.

    "We went toe to toe with one of the best teams in the league but we couldn't see it out."

  8. Post update

    FT: Hamilton 3-3 Hearts

    Well, we can't argue with a six-goal thriller. How many of you had that on the Predictor?

    Accies have struggled for goals this season and will be kicking themselves after scoring three at home and not picking up maximum points.

    Hearts' mis-firing forwards were once again bailed out by others. Callum Paterson's late strike was the full-back's sixth goal of the season, while Jamie Walker joins him on that number after his double.

  10. Sore one for Hamilton

    FT: Hamilton 3-3 Hearts

    "Accies will be so disappointed because they were the better side in the second half," says BBC Sportsound pundit Derek Ferguson. "They were more aggressive and created the better chances."

  11. FULL-TIME Hamilton 3-3 Hearts

    At one stage Hamilton were on course to move up to sixth in the Premiership but after Hearts hit back to earn a point the hosts nudge above Partick Thistle into 10th spot - courtesy of coming first in the alphabet since the teams have identical goals for and against.

    The Jambos stay fourth, three points behind Rangers.

  12. Post update

    Hamilton 3-3 Hearts

    Both sides going for it as we enter the last few minutes. End-to-end.

  13. Post update

    Hamilton 3-3 Hearts

    Accies change things up front with Alex D'Acol on for two-goal hero Rakish Bingham.

    Soon followed by Leonard Sowah replacing Dougie Imrie.

  14. GOAL Hamilton 3-3 Hearts

    Callum Paterson, 86 mins

    We're back on level terms as Hearts throw the Perry Kitchen sink at Hamilton, with the USA international threading a pass through to Callum Paterson, who takes a touch in the box before drilling a low shot into the corner of the net from near the penalty spot.

    Moments before, there was a scare for the visitors as Jack Hamilton and Alim Ozturk got themselves in a muddle at the edge of the Hearts penalty area, with the keeper unable to gather an awkward back-pass.

    Hamilton 3-2 Hearts

    As we move into the 85th minute Gramoz Kurtaj drives through the middle and decides to have a lash. The shot is not hit cleanly and it's an easy save for Hearts keeper Jack Hamilton.


    Hamilton 3-2 Hearts

    Jamie Walker is the width of the crossbar away from a hat-trick! The Hearts midfielder cuts on to his right and takes aim for the opposite top corner only for the ball to crash against the junction of post and bar. The rebound falls to Callum Paterson but his header lacks power and Gary Woods makes a diving save.

  17. Triple change for Hearts

    Hamilton 3-2 Hearts

    Hearts gaffer Robbie Neilson rolls the dice with a triple substitution.

    Faycal Rherras, Conor Sammon and Arnaud Djoum all come on for Bjorn Johnsen, Tony Watt and Prince Buaben.

  18. CLOSE!

    Hamilton 3-2 Hearts

    Another nice bit of work from Ali Crawford as he finds Gramoz Kurtaj with a clever cross ball. From the angle of the six yard box, the midfielder from Kosovo tries to find the opposite corner but is inches wide of the target.

  19. GOAL Hamilton 3-2 Hearts

    Jamie Walker pen, 73 mins

    The BBC Sportsound team think that was a bit of a soft penalty but Jamie Walker won't care about that as he converts from the spot, via the inside of the post.


    Don Cowie clipped by Dan Seaborne. Give those departing Hearts fans a shout...

    Just moments after Greg Docherty replaced Grant Gillespie for Accies.
