Hamilton Academical 2-0 Livingston

Hamilton Academical moved to within a point of Championship leaders Dundee with a workmanlike win over Livingston.

Jason Scotland pounced from close range to score his second goal since arriving from Barnsley after a poor punch clear by goalkeeper Darren Jamieson.

Accies were worthy of their half-time lead, but the game was more even in a more scrappy second 45 minutes.

However, Mickael Antoine-Curier settled home nerves in stoppage time with a drive into the bottom left corner.

Although Accies narrowed the gap with Dundee, the leaders could extend their lead again to four points should they win away to Cowdenbeath on Saturday.
