Spence seals Hamilton win

Greig Spence's late goal saw Hamilton down Partick 1-0 in the First Division.

Paul Cairney picked his spot from distance but Accies defender Martin Canning got across to cover.

Dougie Imrie's response was to drill a free-kick against the visiting wall after Darren Cole had conceded a foul in dangerous territory.

And Hamilton's James McAlister went closest to breaking the deadlock as a drab first half drew to a close, scooping his left-footed drive wide of Scott Fox's goal.

It was Imrie with his head in his hands after the restart as he bustled into space only to skew the ball over the crossbar.

Jags striker Kris Doolan then fired wide of the target when set free down the right channel.

But in the 87th minute Spence bagged all three points for the hosts, stealing in to the six-yard box to turn home Grant Anderson's cross.

To add insult to injury, a frustrated Alan Archibald saw red for a violent challenge on Imrie just before the final whistle.
