Hamilton Academical Preview – Can Hamilton avoid heavy defeat?

Hamilton Academical started this season’s Scottish Premiership campaign in disastrous fashion as they suffered a heavy 5-1 defeat away from home at Celtic Park against last season’s champions, Celtic, and a further two defeats swiftly followed, making it three defeats on the trot for Saturday’s hosts.

Subsequent defeats at home against Ross County and St Mirren respectively made it a tough start for The Accies but they bounced back with a valuable 1-0 win away from home at Motherwell last weekend to give them a timely boost ahead of this difficult looking fixture against Rangers.

It may be a difficult task that lies ahead for Hamilton but it’s not an impossible one despite winning just one of their last eight matches at home as Hamilton registered a 1-0 win away at Hampden Park back in March, so they’ve proved they can hold their own against Steven Gerrard’s side.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Rangers Preview – Can Rangers extend lead at top?

Rangers have made a solid and impressive start to this new Scottish Premiership season as Steven Gerrard’s side still remain unbeaten after the first five matches of the new term, winning four of these five which has helped lift The ‘Gers to the top of the table.

With main rivals, Celtic, temporarily out of the picture in 4th place and six points adrift of the early league leaders, Gerrard will be keen for his side to make hay while the sun shines, particularly in this upcoming fixture away at 9th placed Hamilton Academical this Saturday.

However, despite their cracking start to this new term where Rangers have scored almost at will, the majority of these wins have been at Hampden Park where they’ve recorded 3-0 wins over St Mirren and St Johnstone along with a 2-0 win over Kilmarnock, but on the road, Rangers have won by 3 goals or more in just 4 of their last 22 matches on their travels.
