Sweet revenge for champions County
Ross County gained revenge over Hamilton with a 5-1 victory at Victoria Park.
The Accies are the only team to have beaten Derek Adams' side in the league this season, but fell behind after five minutes when Colin McMenamin swept home Richard Brittain's right-wing cross.
The Staggies doubled their lead five minutes before the break, Michael Gardyne playing in Brittain to score his 11th goal of the season.
Billy Reid's men came back into the game in the 46th minute when James McAlister found the back of the net with a long-range strike.
But Stuart Kettlewell restored County's two-goal advantage just 45 seconds later, tapping home Scott Morrison's cross.
The champions assured their victory after 54 minutes when Brittain scored his second of the afternoon.
Gardyne then scored County's fifth in the 77th minute, smashing the ball into the roof of the net after the visitors failed to clear Lawson's corner.
