Hamilton boss Billy Reid believes the first goal in his side's 2-0 defeat at Hearts was the crucial factor.
David Obua opened the scoring for the hosts just after the hour mark and David Templton sealed the win with 10 minutes remaining to ensure Accies left empty handed.
"I don't think we deserved to take something out of the game," he admitted. "They scored two goals and if you score two goals, you deserve to win the game.
"I certainly don't think there was anything in the game. I never felt under real pressure; they'll probably say the same.
"I thought the first goal was always going to win it for either team and unfortunately it was Hearts who got it."
