Cowdenbeath held off Hamilton's gallant comeback to win at New Douglas Park.

Greg Stewart's strike and two from Kane Hemmings put Cowden three up at the break.

Stewart tucked away his second after the break before Anthony Andreu steered home to reduce Hamilton's arrears.

James Keatings scored from the penalty spot after debutant Jason Scotland had been fouled and Andreu's deflected second gave the hosts hope but the visitors saw out victory.
