Managerless Hamilton increase Pars' pain

Dunfermline's misery continued as they lost 3-2 against managerless Hamilton to stretch the crisis-hit club's winless run to 10 matches.

The Pars, who are facing a fight to survive off the pitch, fought back from a goal down twice but had no reply to Martin Canning's 77th-minute winner.

Skipper Alex Neil and Academy director Frankie McAvoy were in charge of the visitors after Billy Reid left the club in midweek following almost eight years in charge.

Jon McShane headed them into a second-minute lead from a corner but Ryan Thomson replied with a header of his own before half-time.

Hamilton took the lead again in the 57th minute as Alister Crawford's free-kick was headed in by Michael Devlin.

But Dunfermline levelled once more, this time through Stephen Husband's 66th-minute penalty after Canning brought down Callum Morris in the box.

Yet Canning made amends 11 minutes later by turning in Louis Longridge's cross to secure back-to-back victories for Hamilton.
