AIRDRIE entertain Hamilton Accies in the first leg of the Scottish Championhip play-off on Tuesday and both sides will go into this with confidence.

The Diamonds may have only finished third in League One and 21 points behind runaway winners Dunfermline and seven behind runners-up Falkirk, but they absolutely blew the Bairns away in the semi-finals.

They've only lost once since March and that was a nothing game at home to Queen of the South with play-off places secured.

That took character, but Airdrie have their tails up in this Lanarkshire battle.
