Steven Boyd rifled home a fantastic volley to settle the Lankarshire derby

Steven Boyd's sensational volley snatched a Lanarkshire derby win for Hamilton Academical over Motherwell.

The Steelmen had been the game's dominant force, with the lion's share of possession and the best chances.

Gael Bigirimana and Curtis Main, in either half, went closest to scoring.

But Boyd's brilliant 67th-minute strike stunned the hosts, and Ross Cunningham should have doubled Accies' lead as they consigned their county rivals to successive Premiership losses.

Martin Canning's men earn their first points of the league campaign, and their first away league win in nine outings.

Motherwell have failed to score a goal in both their top-flight matches this term.
