Scott Tunbridge scored the only goal as Hamilton deservedly took the points against Ross County at Victoria Park.
Tunbridge swept in a diagonal cross from Tom Parratt in the 35th minute to secure the points.
County rarely threatened and late headers from substitute Amick Ciani and defender Andy Dowie were the closest the home side came to a goal.
Accies best chance of the second half was a Brian Easton effort that flew narrowly wide.
