Raith Rovers 2-4 Hamilton Academical

Four first-half goals helped Hamilton to victory over Raith Rovers.

Anthony Andreu fired the visitors' opener and then headed a second before Louis Longridge added his name to the scoresheet.

Liam Fox then fouled James Keatings, who converted the resulting penalty shortly before the break.

Joe Cardle and John Baird scored for Raith in the final 10 minutes but those goals proved only to be consolation as Hamilton went second in the table.
