Kilmarnock   3 - 0   Hamilton

Highlights - Kilmarnock 3-0 Hamilton

Highlights - Kilmarnock 3-0 Hamilton

Conor Sammon struck twice as Kilmarnock made it three consecutive 3-0 wins in the Scottish Premier League.

Teenage full-back Ben Gordon curled a wonderful strike into the top corner after 34 minutes.

Sammon home cracked in a volley early in the second half as Hamilton failed to clear their lines then he powered in a firm header on 52 minutes.

Hamilton Accies pair Nigel Hasselbaink and Damian Casalinuovo both blazed first half efforts over the crossbar.

Killie boss Mixu Paatelainen cut a satisfied figure at full-time as his side continued their fine recent form after an evenly-matched first 30 minutes at Rugby Park.

The home side wasted a couple of half chances before a dreadful pass from home playmaker Mehdi Taouil went straight to opponent Dougie Imrie, who slipped Hasselbaink through on goal but the striker shot wildly over the top.

Hamilton were forced into a 24th-minute switch when Hasselbaink, suffering an apparent hamstring injury, limped off to be replaced by Casalinuovo.

Sammon battled his way beyond Martin Canning after 29 minutes only for Tomas Cerny to dive at his feet and claim right on the edge of the penalty box amid Kilmarnock protests he had handled the ball outside of the area.

The home team moved ahead when Gordon, on loan from Chelsea, stepped inside a Canning challenge and curled the ball expertly past Cerny.

Hamilton should have levelled when after fine set-up play from Imrie on the left, Casalinuovo slid in at the far post, but could only direct his effort over the bar.

Kilmarnock continued to press before the interval and came close to a second goal when Alexei Eremenko sent a swerving shot just over the bar.

The Ayrshire side doubled their lead within a minute of the restart when Mark McLaughlin and Canning both failed to head clear, allowing Sammon in behind them to finish.

Eremenko was his usual confident self in midfield and the Finn almost surprised Cerny with an audacious long-range chip that only just cleared the crossbar with the goalkeeper backtracking.

The points were made safe when Craig Bryson's searching cross from the left found the leaping Sammon and his powerful header beat the diving Cerny.

Sammon might have claimed a hat-trick on the hour when Hamilton were unable to deal with a Taouil cross, but the striker shot wide.

Kilmarnock continued to threaten but could not add to their tally, with Taouil volleying wide from a move he started in his own half and Jamie Hamill sending a spinning shot over the reach of Cerny and onto the top of the crossbar in the 77th minute.
