The latest from City's loan exports

HAMILTON Academical's Scottish Premiership survival bid looks set to go to the wire after they were beaten 2-1 at fellow strugglers Inverness Caledonian Thistle on Saturday.

Remi Matthews played the full 90 minutes in goal for Accies, who fell behind early on when Brad McKay volleyed home Greg Tansey's deep free-kick.

The home side doubled their lead before the interval through a Tansey spot-kick, with the score remaining at 2-0 until the fourth minute of second half injury-time when Danny Redmond netted a consolation.

Inverness' victory closes the gap between the basement side and Hamilton to four points with three games remaining, with Motherwell sandwiched by the pair and occupying the relegation play-off place.

One team Accies could eventually face, potentially, if they are drawn into a play-off situation is Championship side Dundee United, who played out a weekend 1-1 draw at Greenock Morton.

Both goals came in the second half, with City midfielder Tony Andreu striking the woodwork as United ended the regular season in third position.

That means they will face Morton in the first round of play-off fixtures, their upcoming opponents having taken fourth place overall.

Back in England, Harry Toffolo's Scunthorpe United missed out on Wembley after a 3-2 aggregate Sky Bet League One play-off semi-final defeat to Millwall.

With the tie level at 0-0 after the first leg, United were beaten at home by The Lions on Sunday, with former Canaries striker Steve Morison netting twice to do most of the damage.

Toffolo was an unused substitute for both legs, and alongside Declan Rudd recently had a one-year contract extension triggered by City.

Finally, the Sky Bet Championship season drew to a close on Sunday, bringing an end to Carlton Morris' loan spell at Rotherham United.

Morris was an unused substitute as United drew 1-1 at home to Derby County, with Lee Frecklington's goal cancelled out by Tom Ince's late penalty for the hosts.
