See Hamilton beat Kilmarnock in Gary Locke's last match in charge
Lee McCulloch was placed in interim charge of the Rugby Park side after the Premiership loss.
Watch highlights of Hamilton Accies' 1-0 win over Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership.
Carlton Morris' second-half goal gave Hamilton the narrow win over Premiership relegation rivals Kilmarnock at Rugby Park, with Gary Locke resigning after the match.
On a cold and blustery day in Ayrshire, the poor shooting, inability to keep possession for any length of time and lack of guile which pockmarked the first-half demonstrated why both clubs are struggling at the wrong end of the table.
It livened up a little in the second-half and after home striker Kris Boyd hit the woodwork with a drive, Morris got on the end of an Ali Crawford corner to grab what turned out to be the winner.
It was only Hamilton's second win in 17 games and took them four points ahead of Kilmarnock, who remain in the relegation play-off spot, 11 clear of bottom side Dundee United whose game against Partick Thistle was postponed, leaving the Tannadice men with two games in hand.
