Striker Doolan opened the scoring after 18 minutes when he fired Christie Elliot's left-wing cross from inside the box into the bottom-right corner of the net.

Midfielder Erskine sealed the points in the 65th minute when he let rip from 18 yards and the ball nestled into the bottom-right corner of the net.

Hamilton almost grabbed a consolation goal in second-half injury time but Scott Fox was equal to Jon Routledge's 35-yard effort.
