Hamilton Academical 2-0 Queen of the South

Scottish Championship

Hamilton continued their 100% start to the Scottish Championship campaign with victory at home to Queen of the South.

The hosts broke the deadlock shortly before the interval when Grant Gillespie released Darian MacKinnon for a shot that took a wicked deflection.

Alister Crawford fired straight at Queens goalkeeper Calum Antell, while Derek Lyle's close-range shot was parried away by Kevin Cuthbert.

Substitute Andy Ryan slotted in from six yards with 10 minutes remaining.

Anthony Andreu and Craig Watson combined to create the opportunity.
