Hamilton Academical moved four points clear at the top of the Scottish Championship with victory over Falkirk.

Anthony Andreu struck the hosts' opener and Michael Devlin and Alister Crawford had chances to double the lead.

Rory Loy and then Craig Sibbald were denied by Accies goalkeeper Kevin Cuthbert in the run up to half-time.

Andreu and Conor McGrandles were unable to add to Hamilton's lead but Louis Longridge did get the second with an 18-yard shot late on.
