  4. 'County could have had more' - Coyle

    FT: Ross County 2-1 Hamilton Academical

    Ross County manager Owen Coyle was delighted to see his side record their first home league win of the season after having to come from a goal behind.

    "We had a slow start, but after that, we dominated," he told BBC Scotland. "The important thing was how we reacted and it was there for everyone to see - we scored two wonderful goals.

    "We could have had more if truth be told. Their goalkeeper had some terrific saves.

    "Anyone who came here today could see that Ross County were the better side.

    "The pleasing thing for me was, considering the club hadn't won a home league game this year, it was important to do that as quickly as we could.

    "Coming from behind, that shows real desire, real group mentality."

  5. Thistle 'relief' after win over Dundee

    FT: Partick Thistle 2-1 Dundee

    Partick Thistle manager Alan Archibald sent assistant Scott Paterson to talk to the media.

    "It's a happy dressing room, it's one of relief," he said after a first league win of the season that eases pressure on Archibald.

    "It was a very tough game, tough 90 minutes, but I think the players showed a lot of character to come through that.

    "Hopefully, we can go and build on this now for Tuesday night, next game against Hamilton."

  6. Stirling retain lead in League Two

    Stirling Albion maintain their two-point lead in League Two thanks to a convincing 3-0 win over bottom side Cowdenbeath.

    Montrose move up to second after a 1-0 win away to Berwick Rangers, while Peterhead are up to third after coming from behind to record a convincing win away to sorry Clyde.

    Stenhousemuir drop to fourth after losing 2-0 away to Elgin City, who move to within a point of the visitors.

    Edinburgh City's 1-0 defeat at home to Annan Athletic means there is a four-point gap between the bottom three at seventh-placed Berwick.

    Cowdenbeath remain three points behind Edinburgh, with Clyde another two better off.

  7. Canning hits out at own player

    FT: Ross County 2-1 Hamilton Academical

    Hamilton manager Martin Canning did not hold back after seeing his side lost 2-1 away to Ross County and picked out defender Xavier Tomas for criticism.

    "It's difficult to take," he told BBC Scotland. "It's another game we take the lead, looked comfortable and we find a way to lose.

    "It's a lack of leadership and a lack of someone taking control and making sure we're organised. It's a sore one again.

    "It's driving me crazy. We're so naive defensively. Big Xavier has got to do more, he's got to be more of a leader in there, he's got to organise more.

    "That's putting a bit more responsibility on Xavi, but as a senior pro in there, he's got to stand up to that.

    "We're turning into experts at finding a way to lose a game. I think that's four of the last six we've gone ahead and we've lost every one of them."

  8. Ayr and Arbroath goal happy in League One

    With League One leaders' Raith Rovers' match away to Stranraer being abandoned, Ayr United move to within two points of the Kirkcaldy outfit thanks to a 5-0 hammering of Forfar Athletic.

    Michael Moffat grabbed himself a hat-trick against the league's bottom side.

    Arbroath moved into third place after an impressive 7-1 win over Airdrieonians, with Ryan McCord and Danny Denholm both scoring twice.

    Albion Rovers drop to fourth after a surprise 1-0 defeat at home to Queen's Park, who move three points clear of Forfar at the bottom.

    In the division's other game, Alloa Athletic were convincing 4-1 winners over East Fife.

  9. Hearts had good fortune - Wright

    FT: Hearts 1-0 St Johnstone

    St Johnstone manager Tommy Wright lamented his side's lack of quality in front of goal in their defeat by Hearts.

    "It was a poor game and neither side probably deserved to win," he told BBC Scotland.

    "Hearts unfortunately got the good fortune at the goal.

    "In the first half, we got into good positions, but we couldn't cross a road at the moment.

    "I think it's our final ball and it's been that for a few weeks now.

    "The beauty of a midweek game is that we have a chance to bounce back on Tuesday."

  10. Levein happy to win 'war'

    FT: Hearts 1-0 St Johnstone

    Hearts manager Craig Levein was just happy to get three points ahead of Tuesday's Edinburgh derby against Hibs.

    "It was a bit of a war of attrition, but we were the team that managed to see the game out," he told BBC Scotland.

    "I'm pleased. We don't have a good record against St Johnstone recently.

    "Kyle Lafferty gives everything every week and he's still getting up to speed and I think he deserved his goal for his endeavour.

    "He got a goal today, but I was even more happy with his attitude."

  11. Pars make ground in Championship

    Leaders St Mirren have been held away to Falkirk after the Bairns' second 0-0 in a draw since Paul Hartley took over as manager.

    Dunfermline Athletic leapfrog visitors Livingston into second place - now two points behind the Buddies - thanks to their convincing 3-1 win at East End Park.

    Pre-season favourites Dundee United lose further ground after a 2-0 defeat at home to an Inverness Caledonian Thistle side who jump above Falkirk as they continue their recovery from a poor start to the season.

    Queen of the South's 1-0 win away to Brechin City takes them into fifth above Greenock Morton, who were held at home by Dumbarton.

    Brechin are now six points adrift of Falkirk at the bottom.

    Hearts move up to fifth place in the Premiership thanks to a deflected strike from Kyle Lafferty.

    The home side almost grabbed another one, with 16-year-old Harry Cochrane thumping a shot against the post in the final move of the match.

  14. FULL-TIME Partick Thistle 2-1 Dundee

    Two goals in the last 15 minutes hand Thistle what for long looked an unlikely win.

    The pressure eases on manager Alan Archbald after their first Premiership win of the season.

    Thistle remain bottom of the table, but they are how only behind Kilmarnock on goal difference, although the Ayrshire side have a game in hand.

  15. FULL-TIME Ross County 2-1 Hamilton Accies

    Ross County for a while looked like they would never score, and Greg Docherty's header had given Hamilton a fortuitous lead. However the substitution of Alex Schalk helped change the game - scoring the equaliser then setting up Thomas Mikkelsen for a late winner.

  19. GOAL Ross County 2-1 Hamilton Accies

    Thomas Mikkelsen

    Ross County take the lead and you have to say it is deserved. They get forward on the counter attack, Alex Schalk feeds Thomas Mikkelsen and he coolly slots home.

  20. GREAT SAVE!

    Partick Thistle 1-1 Dundee

    What a chance for Dundee, but a superb save from Tomas Cerny denies Sofien Moussa from close range.
