Three goals in the opening 20 minutes gave Hamilton Academical victory over Alloa Athletic.

Louis Longridge tapped the ball into an empty net after a mix up in Alloa's defence early on.

Accies were then awarded a penalty after Michael Doyle had tripped Ziggy Gordon. James Keatings converted.

Anthony Andreu tucked home Hamilton's third and, though both sides created chances after that, there were no further goals.
