ACCIES KEEPER THE HERO – NOW BRING ON THE RANGERS!

0
GOALKEEPER Remi Matthews was the Hamilton hero with three saves in a dramatic 3-0 Scottish Cup penalty-kick shoot-out win over Dunfermline last night.
The Accies will now face Rangers at Ibrox in the quarter-finals next month.

Delighted boss Martin Canning said: “Remi was outstanding. He has had three saves out of three and that takes the pressure off our takers.

“It was a tough Cup-tie. Dunfermline are a good side, but we were in control for most of the game.”
After a 1-1 draw at East End Park on Saturday, Callum Morris put the Championship side ahead in the replay in the 24th minute at the SuperSeal stadium.
However, with three minutes remaining, the Pars defender conceded a penalty with a foul on Scott McMann, allowing Accies striker Rakish Bingham to level.
Extra-time was goalless which meant penalties and Matthews saved from Rhys McCabe, Michael Paton and Gavin Reilly.

After Massimo Donati and Eamonn Brophy scored either side of Danny Redmond lofting his penalty over the bar, skipper Michael Devlin slotted in his penalty to confirm the Ibrox meeting.
