Hamilton Accies boss John Rankin hailed Kevin O'Hara's wonderstrike for giving them the spark to take a lead to Inverness in the second leg of the Championship play-off final.But he admits he is disappointed they didn't punish Inverness further after a dominant first half display.O'Hara's 50-yard lob over Caley keeper Mark Ridgers, which cannoned back off the post and into the net off the visiting No.1, gave Accies a dream start inside six minutes and they had the visitors on the ropes when Fegus Owens' header doubled their advantage inside 22 minutes.But Accies passed up a number of chances following that while Ben Williamson also had a big claim for a penalty turned down just before the break.And that came back to bite them somewhat as Inverness were much improved after the break, with substitute Aribim Pepple's 68th strike giving Duncan Ferguson's side hope of turning it around in Saturday's second leg at the Caledonian Stadium.Rankin said: "The goal from Kevin lifts any stadium.

It just lit the stadium up and we got a bounce off that. We got the crowd on our side with that as well and I'm delighted. We had other chances after that where we should have done better and that is my disappointment that we didn't take them."The way we played in the first half you can see we are a threat and we should have been more ruthless to have given us a better lead.

We knew they were going to come for us in the second half and we defended our box very well apart from the goal. We have a slight advantage and it is everything to play for now."On O'Hara's strike, which was his 18th goal of the season, Rankin added: "The boys continually shoot from that area in training every week so I see them all do it.
