Morton 0-1 Hamilton

Morton's eight-match unbeaten run came to an end with a home defeat to Hamilton Accies.

The away side had won just once all season before kick-off but Steven May's first-half goal gave them the three points.

May collected Jonathon Routledge's pass in the 21st minute and fired a low 20-yard drive into the bottom right-hand corner.

Accies were denied a second by a fantastic save by Derek Gaston, after May had headed Alister Crawford's right-wing free-kick goalwards.

Morton pressed for an equaliser and Scott Taggart's fierce effort from the edge of the area forced Kevin Cuthbert into a good save.

As the game entered stoppage-time, Michael Tidser was denied an equaliser as Cuthbert held his low shot from the edge of the area.
