Dundee United 2 Hamilton 1

Skipper Jon Daly returned to snatch an injury-time winner as Dundee United came from behind to overcome Hamilton Academical at Tannadice. Daly converted a late cross from David Goodwillie, who had earlier cancelled out Flavio Paixao's first-half header.

Home defender Barry Douglas was already required to clear off the line from Simon Mensing, who then helped on Dougie Imrie's 26th minute corner and Paixao forced the ball in to earn the visitors the lead.

Paixao soon had another chance when volleying wide from a Jon Routledge cross before decent work from the recalled Johnny Russell almost set up top scorer Goodwillie at the opposite end.

But Goodwillie still fired an equaliser into the roof of the net from close-range after a Douglas corner just before the break.

Hamilton striker Mickael Antoine-Curier headed Paixao's cross wide following the interval, while Mensing was similarly off-target from another Imrie delivery.

Goodwille also shot wide for the hosts before substitute Prince Buaben brought an excellent save from Tomas Cerny after a sharp exchange of passes.

Cerny then had to help over an effort from Goodwillie and Timothy van der Meulen headed behind from the resultant corner.

Accies' Jim McAlister drilled narrowly wide in reply before there were calls for a penalty from away fans after a challenge on Imrie, who also allowed Routledge to miss the target.

But it was their opponents who claimed the points right at the death when Goodwillie worked the chance for substitute Daly to turn the ball home and record a third straight victory.
