Hamilton boss Stuart Taylor says his side were so dominant in the first half that they fell into a trap and lost 2-0 at home to Ayr United.

Steven Bradley scored one and set up a second for Tomi Adeloye as clinical Ayr took the points back to Somerset Park.

Taylor says his side were so dominant in the first half that they switched off, and paid the price against Jim Duffy's side.

He said: "I thought in terms of possession and play we dominated the game, and I thought we were in control of the game throughout the first half.

"I don't think there were any problems defensively, and up until the first goal, the breakaway.

"I said to the players, sometimes you can dominate games so much that we switch off a little bit and they can hit you on the counter, so make sure that doesn't happen, and it did.

"We were so secure in possession, it was just a ball that broke loose, they've knocked it over the top, got themselves in and got a goal."

Taylor says he wasn't disappointed with the number of chances Accies created, but in their finishing.

He said: "Goals change games and we need to turn possession into better opportunities than we're doing at this moment in time.

"I don't think there were any issues in terms of the shots that we had, the goal-scoring opportunities that we had were very high - I think there were about 15 or something like that against their five.

"I think they had four on target, and I think we probably had about the same as well.

"It's certainly something that we'll look at and, moving forward, we'll make sure that we improve on that."
