Hamilton Academical Preview – Can the Accies put three points on the board?

Hamilton Academical are yet again one of the favourites for relegation. The Accies began their campaign with a heavy 5-1 loss to champions Celtic at Celtic Park last Sunday. Despite the big scoreline, Brian Rice’s boys gave a good account of themselves in Glasgow.

Hamilton Accies survived by the skin of their teeth last season, finishing four points ahead of relegated Hearts. It was a tough campaign for the South Lanarkshire side, who lost exactly half of their 30 league fixtures.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1103 GMT, Friday 7 August)

Only bottom club Hearts accumulated fewer home points than the Accies, who were beaten nine times at New Douglas Park last term. Despite winning just two away games, five clubs picked up a lesser amount of points on the road.

After starting with a big loss at the home of the champions, can Hamilton make home advantage count and take all three points from this one on Saturday?

Ross County Preview – Staggies to pick up an away win in Hamilton?

Ross County finished one place and two points above Hamilton Academical in the Scottish Premiership last season. Stuart Kettlewell is the lone manager of County nowadays, and the 36-year-old got off to a winning start last Monday.

On the opening weekend of the new season, Ross County edged past Motherwell at Victoria Park. Ross Stewart’s 24th-minute penalty was enough to give the Staggies a 1-0 victory, with Callum Lang later being sent off for the away team.
