A last-gasp Stevie May goal earned Hamilton a precious point at Airdrie in a game they were seconds away from losing on Saturday.
The on-loan St Johnstone striker had given Accies the lead in 61 minutes, but the Diamonds levelled from the spot two minutes later and Jamie Bain had put them ahead with a spectacular strike four minutes into stoppage time, only to see that cancelled out within 60 seconds in a dramatic finale.
Hamilton struck first in 61 minutes when May took a Gary Fisher pass in his stride, turned and blasted low into the bottom left corner.
Two minutes later Bain went down under a challenge by Alex Neil and referee David Somers pointed to the spot. Being polite, it was an extremely soft award, but debutant Jordan Moore didn’t care as he sent the ball ripping into the net past Kevin Cuthbert.
Airdrie should have led in 76 minutes when Bain was sent through, but Cuthbert brilliantly parried his powerful shot and Moore could only send the rebound over.
Accies thought they had taken the lead in 84 minutes when May found sub Jon McShane but his shot from close range was hacked off the line by Gregor Buchanan.
Airdrie led when a quickly-taken free-kick released Bain and he launched a half-volley into the top right corner from 20 yards. Accies threw everything they had at Airdrie and when McShane’s shot was parried, May finished well.
