Hamilton 1-0 Dundee United (1-0 agg): Accies retain Scottish Premiership status

first_img1 Martin Canning: The 35-year-old manager has helped Hamilton avoid the drop Greg Docherty proved himself to be Hamilton’s saviour as his strike sealed Accies’ Ladbrokes Premiership survival and consigned Dundee United to 12 more months in the Championship.The 20-year-old Accies midfielder handed his side a crucial 1-0 win when he rifled home midway through the second half of the play-off decider at the SuperSeal Stadium.That precious strike stretches the Lanarkshire outfit’s top-flight stay to a fourth year, but it could yet have grave consequences for cash-strapped United.The Tannadice outfit’s auditors have already admitted there is ‘material uncertainty’ over the club’s status as a going concern after they suffered losses of £1.55million following relegation last year.Under-fire chairman Stephen Thompson insists there is no danger of the club slipping into administration, but the prospect of boss Ray McKinnon being able to put out a promotion-winning squad next season appears faint.last_img
