Hamilton   1 - 0   St Mirren

Falvio Paixao celebrates his late winner
Hamilton celebrate their injury-time winner at New Douglas Park

Falvio Paixao popped up with an injury-time header to earn three valuable points for Hamilton Accies.

Mickael Antoine-Curier and Dougie Imrie both hit the woodwork as Accies made most of the running in the first half.

St Mirren's response saw home keeper Tomas Cerny save from Craig Dargo and Graham Carey's free kick crack the underside of the crossbar.

With a dismal game petering out, Brian Easton crossed for the unmarked Paixao to nod home from six yards.

The win moves Billy Reid's side up to 10th in the Scottish Premier League, leapfrogging the beaten side from Paisley, who sit four points ahead of bottom side Falkirk.

Antoine-Curier had a goal chalked off after just 21 seconds as the hosts dominated the early stages, with Mark McLaughlin seeing his header from Easton's corner touched onto the post one minute later.

A cross from Imrie then skimmed Paul Gallacher's crossbar but Antoine-Curier could not apply the finishing touch before the big striker chipped wide of Paul Gallacher's right-hand post from 18 yards.

The busy Antoine-Curier hit the post from a corner played into a crowded penalty area and it looked as though the hosts would pay for their misses as St Mirren mounted a swift counter-attack.

Andy Dorman sent in a shot that was cleared only as far as Dargo but his rising effort was caught by Cerny.

St Mirren won a free-kick on 52 minutes for McLaughlin's grapple with Billy Mehmet and Carey's strike from the set-piece rattled against the underside of the crossbar and rebounded to safety.

Mehmet's diagonal strike whizzed narrowly wide soon after and the visitors threatened again moments later when Carey's corner skimmed straight through the box.

Paixao played a neat one-two with Imrie to square across goal for Antoine-Curier, but the striker failed to connect with the inviting ball.

Imrie later tried a snapshot as the game entered its final quarter but it was easily held by Gallacher, before the St Mirren beat away a close-range Paixao effort at the right-hand post.

Gallacher made a double block from substitute Marco Paixao as the game appeared destined for a stalemate.

However, the action was not over and Easton sent in a cross midway through the three minutes of injury time, which was flicked on by James Wesolowski to Flavio Paixao, and he scored with an assured header.
