Hearts scored their first back-to-back wins since December, with a 2-0 victory over Hamilton at Tynecastle.

Hamilton's Flavio Paixao had a good chance to net the first goal of the match shortly after the break, but was denied by Hearts goalie Marian Kello.

Instead, it was Hearts' David Obua who opened the scoring, before David Templeton doubled their lead with his first goal for the club late on.

Hearts are now sixth in the table while Hamilton are stuck in the drop zone.

They're just one point above Falkirk who are currently bottom of the Scottish Premier League..
