Alex Neil says that he is 'not surprised' by Hamilton's good form, after beating Aberdeen 3-0 and extending their lead at the top of the table to four points.

Hamilton Academical manager Alex Neil has said that he is 'not surprised' by his side's form, after seeing them beat Aberdeen 3-0 to stay top of the Scottish Premiership.

Since Hamilton's return to the top flight, the league leaders have overcome Celtic and a host of others to be four points clear, a feat that the manager expected.

"They don't really surprise me," Neil told Sky Sports News.

"I didn't really know how we would have fared in the Premiership but once I looked at the other teams and I knew what I had, I had confidence that we could do well.

"The teams that we're playing are really difficult, but fortunately for us we're in a rich vein of form, we're managing to score a lot of goals and we're not conceding."

Hamilton's next opponents are Dundee, who they will face next weekend on October 25.
