Hamilton Academical Preview – Can Hamilton avoid third straight defeat?

Following back-to-back defeats at the start of this new Scottish Premiership campaign, Saturday’s hosts, Hamilton Academical, will be desperate to avoid a third straight defeat when they play host to mid-table dwellers, St Mirren.

A heavy 5-1 thrashing away at Celtic Park against Celtic wasn’t the kind of start that Hamilton manager, Brian Rice, had in mind before the season kicked off, and things got worse last week when The Accies suffered a 1-0 defeat at home to Ross County, but they have another chance to redeem themselves at home this Saturday.

Hamilton will certainly be keen to avoid another relegation battle this time around after narrowly avoiding the drop down to the Championship at the end of last term as they finished second from bottom in the Premiership, but a home win here does seem unlikely; instead, the draw looks favourable as three of their last five encounters against St Mirren have ended in stalemate.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

St Mirren Preview – Can St Mirren improve on travels?

Although St Mirren finished last season’s Premiership campaign in 9th place and two points ahead of Saturday’s hosts, Hamilton Academical, the visitors will have pinpointed their poor away record last term as an area for definite improvement this time around as they captured just two wins on the road all season.

However, early indications suggest this could be another frustrating campaign for The Saints as they registered a 1-0 home win on the opening day of the Premiership season against Livingston, only for their hard work to be undone by a heavy 3-0 loss at Ibrox against last season’s runners-up, Rangers.

Five of St Mirren’s seven league wins last season were achieved on home turf at their Simple Digital Arena, while an away record which finished at a poor 2-2-11 11/28 included failing to score in seven of their 15 away matches last term, so goals could be at a premium again this Saturday.
