  1. Still four clubs battling it out

    We move on to tomorrow evening and we still have four teams who could be involved in that Premiership Play-off final.

    Hamilton and St Mirren will go into their final league game of the season battling it out to avoid second bottom in the top flight.

    Tomorrow, Inverness Caley Thistle entertain Championship rivals Dundee United in the first leg of the semi-final.

    By the time Accies host St Johnstone and St Mirren visit Dundee, they will know their potential opponents after Friday's second leg.

    Join us online and on BBC Radio Scotland for live coverage of all those games.

  3. 'We showed good mentality'

    FT: St Mirren 2-0 Hamilton Academical

    St Mirren manager Oran Kearney tells BBC Radio Scotland: "It is great to get the three points. Our aim was to keep it alive until Saturday and we're glad to do that.

    "It took a lot of time to crack them open and get the first goal.

    "The level of patience we showed, nobody deviated and we showed a good mentality to get the job done.

    "We move on to doing our job on Saturday. It is still in Hamilton's hands and we'll do our job and see what happens.

    "I don't expect that Dundee will just lie down on Saturday."

    St Mirren boss Oran Kearney celebrates with his players
  4. 'We are Hamilton. We thrive on these things'

    FT: St Mirren 2-0 Hamilton Academical

    Hamilton manager Brian Rice tells Sportsound: "I think St Mirren deserved to win the match.

    "Willie Collum has sent the guy off. What I think doesn't matter.

    "The response was magnificent. Throwing bodies on the line, headers, tackles, blocks. The goalkeeper made saves, but it wasn't to be.

    "It's still in our hands. We are a point clear of St Mirren and we are at home. We have a good record at home.

    "This is Hamilton. We thrive on these things. We go again on Saturday."

  5. 'You would hand pick Dundee'

    Steven Thompson

    Former St Mirren striker on BBC Sportsound

    Quote Message: If you were to hand pick a team to play on the last day of the season, it would be Dundee as they are in a bit of disarray. But, if Hamilton do the business against St Johnstone, it doesn't matter
  6. 'I could hardly celebrate'

    FT: St Mirren 2-0 Hamilton Academical

    St Mirren's second goalscorer, Kyle Magennis, tells Sportsound: "It is absolutely unbelievable.

    "We just had to keep the ball, be patient and fortunately we got two goals.

    "My calves had ceased up, I was just thinking about them. I could hardly celebrate.

    "Hopefully St Johnstone can do us a favour and we can beat Dundee."

  7. 'It was huge' - Kearney

    FT: St Mirren 2-0 Hamilton Academical

    St Mirren manager Oran Kearner tells BT Sport: "It was huge.

    "It was important to be patient and make sure we didn't move from the game plan. In the second half, we were brilliant.

    "McAllister tonight was exceptional and, if anyone deserved the first goal, it was him.

    "The crowd have been top notch. They have got stronger as the season has gone on and they were like a 12th man.

    "Our job at the start of the week was two wins."

  8. Paisley as 'buzzing'

    Derek Ferguson

    Former Hamilton midfielder on Sportsound

    Quote Message: I am disappointed as an Accies man, but it was nice to see this place buzzing tonight
  9. Dateline Saturday

    FT: St Mirren 2-0 Hamilton Academical

    St Mirren remain in second bottom and deep in relegation danger, but their victory takes them to within a point of tonight's visitors.

    The Buddies travel to face relegated Dundee on Saturday.

    Despite it being away from home, that sounds like an easier task than Hamilton's at home to seventh-top St Johnstone.

    St Mirren also have a much better goal difference.

  11. FULL-TIME St Mirren 2-0 Hamilton Academical

    So we go on to the final day and we still don't know whether St Mirren or Hamilton will be finishing second bottom and facing a play-off against the side coming through the play-off semi-final.

    Accies will rue an early miss by George Oakley and may question the sending off of Alex Gogic.

    But St Mirren went on to deserve their victory, although it came through a scrappy goal from Kyle McAllister followed by a Kyle Magennis strike after the visitors were down to nine men following Mickel Miller's injury.

  15. Post update

    St Mirren 1-0 Hamilton Academical

    Are we heading into a final-day climax to decide who will be facing a play-off to stay in the Premiership?

  16. Ouch!

    St Mirren 1-0 Hamilton Academical

    Accies striker Mickel Miller goes down awkwardly as he competes for a high ball with Jack Baird.

    Outside of Kyle McAllister, the numbers on this may resemble a binary code, but give it a bash. Be generous...

  18. Post update

    St Mirren 1-0 Hamilton Academical

    Accies are wide open at the back, but they are starting to create chances of their own.

    Dougie Imrie starts the attack, which ends with goalkeeper Vaclav Hladky having to slap the ball off the toes of George Oakley.

    Oakley then sends a low drive just wide.

    Gary Woods keeps Accies in the game with a fine save, beating away a powerful drive by goalscorer Kyle McAllister.

    The goalkeeper then has to look smart to save a near-post header by Cody Cooke.

  20. Imrie on for Martin

    St Mirren 1-0 Hamilton Academical

    Dougie Imrie, who is retiring at the end of the season, is sent on by Accies boss Brian Rice.
