Hamilton 0-1 Alloa Athletic

Darryl Meggatt's first goal for Alloa helped inflict a narrow defeat on promotion-chasing Hamilton Academical.

Accies went into the game three points clear at the top of the Scottish Championship but were replaced by Dundee after a second straight defeat.

Louis Longridge went close for the hosts early and Alloa's Anthony Andreu fired over before the break.

Meggat headed home Ryan McCord's cross and the visitors' lead was preserved when Scott Bain saved from Andrew Ryan.
