Livingston suffered defeat at the hands of Hamilton hat-trick hero Stevie May.
Livi enjoyed early chances with Iain Russell, Tony Andreu and Kyle Lander all threatening, but 'keeper Kevin Cuthbert kept them out.
And that was as good as it got for Livi with May firing home two before the break and one late on.
The first was fired home from the penalty spot after a foul by Coll Donaldson on Jon McShane.
The Hamilton hitman netted his second with a curling effort.
After the break, May rattled the post with a diving header, and Alister Crawford smashed his volley off both posts.
Jonathan Page was sent off for a foul on Danny Mullen before May grabbed his hat-trick by smashing home his third.
