Hamilton Accies kept up the pressure on leaders Dundee with a home win against third-placed Falkirk.

Jason Scotland's early goal gave the hosts the lead with a smart header into the bottom corner from six yards.

Falkirk equalised with a headed goal of their own from Mark Beck, but Darian Mackinnon put Hamilton back into the lead just three minutes later.

Louis Longridge grabbed a late header to seal the points, and stretch Accies lead over Falkirk to five points.
