Falkirk 1-2 Hamilton Academcial

Hamilton Academical came from behind against Falkirk to maintain their 100% record at the top of the Scottish Championship.

Jay Fulton opened the scoring for Falkirk after 49 minutes with a long range right-footed free-kick.

Accies snatched an equaliser after 71 minutes, when Mickael Antoine-Curier slotted home from 15 yards.

Alister Crawford smashed a thunderous drive past Michael McGovern from 25 yards three minutes later.

Before those goals, Fulton had close to doubling Falkirk's lead after 65 minutes, after Rory Loy's shot was blocked by Michael Devlin, but his shot was smothered away by Kevin Cuthbert.

Falkirk pushed hard for an equaliser late on but were never really able to test Cuthbert in the Hamilton goal.
