James Keatings scored twice as Scottish Championship leaders Hamilton Academical returned to winning ways against Livingston.

After losing to Alloa Athletic last week, Accies were keen to get in front and were given that opportunity from the penalty spot.

Andrew Barrowman handled in the box and Keatings converted from 12 yards.

And Keatings claimed his second from Ali Crawford's cross to seal the home side's victory.
