Dumbarton 2-1 Hamilton Academical

Hamilton slipped to second in the Scottish Championship after losing to Dumbarton.

Garry Fleming struck from the middle of the box to put the Sons ahead in the opening quarter-hour.

However, James Keatings got on the end of Mickael Antoine-Curier's cross to bundle home the visitors' leveller.

Andrew Graham steered the ball past Kevin Cuthbert from six yards in the second half and this time Hamilton could not recover.
