Hamilton 1-0 Cowdenbeath

Hamilton maintained their unbeaten start to the season with victory over Cowdenbeath.

After a goalless first-half, the league leaders secured their fifth win in six games thanks to Ziggy Gordon's strike.

Gordon beat two Cowdenbeath defenders and shot high into the net to give Hamilton a deserved lead after just five minutes of the second half.

In an even first half, Hamilton created the majority of the opportunities. James Keatings forced Grant Adam in the Cowdenbeath goal to parry and Darian Mackinnon's header also worked Adam.

Jon Robertson nearly salvaged a point for the visitors with a right-footed effort that drifted wide.

Cowdenbeath have now lost four of their opening six games.
