Hamilton Prediction

It’s been a difficult season for Hamilton to endure as they find themselves third from bottom in the Scottish Premiership and a massive 22 points off 6th placed St Johnstone who occupy the last spot in the Championship Round.

Hamilton are firmly ensconced in the Relegation round and just marking time as they are also 15 points adrift of the team above them, 9th placed Motherwell, prior to entertaining St Johnstone on Wednesday night.

The hosts are in a dreadful state right now as they’ve lost seven of their last nine league matches in the Premiership and during this wretched run of results, Hamilton have conceded a total of 18 goals and scored just 3 in reply, so it doesn’t bode well for them this evening.

Hamilton also posses a poor home record which stands at 2-2-8 10/23 and they’re without a home win for six matches now with their last success coming in a 1-0 win over Livingston back in early November.


Key-Facts – Hamilton v St Johnstone

  • Hamilton have lost 7 of their last 9 matches in the Premiership
  • Hamilton are without a home win from six matches
  • St Johnstone have the joint highest away wins in the top flight


St Johnstone Prediction

St Johnstone occupy the last spot in the top six of the Scottish Premiership and hold a comfortable five-point cushion ahead of 7th placed Hibernian ahead of these midweek fixtures, but nevertheless, the visitors will be aware that they need to get a result at Hamilton on Wednesday night to maintain their position in the Championship Round.

St Johnstone are a ‘all or nothing’ team and it’s been nothing in recent times as they’ve lost their last three matches on the trot with defeats to Hearts and home away losses to Celtic. However, away from home, although they’ve lost five matches on the road so far this season, they’re also tied with Aberdeen with seven away wins apiece which are the most in the Premiership.

An away record of 7-0-5 12/14 underlines their all or nothing style, but with the likes of midfielders Kennedy (5 goals) and Alston (4 goals), the visitors should walk away with something from their trip at Hamilton.

Betting Tips Verdict

Hamilton have been poor this season and St Johnstone should take advantage here.
