Hamilton Preview – Can Accies build on good away point against Hearts and upset champions?

There are three things for certain in life – death, taxes and Hamilton avoiding relegation from the Scottish Premiership. Every season they are seemingly favourites to be drop out the league and each time they find a way to survive. Even a change in manager halfway through the last campaign wasn’ enough to derail them and they even avoided the relegation playoff. It means this is Brian Rice’s first full season in charge and it has been a good enough start. There are also going to be inconsistent results with how Hamilton play but they are effective in picking up points along the way. Currently in seventh spot, Accies are level on points with three other clubs having amassed four points from as many games. Whilst any sort of result would take them into the top six for a few hours at least, the objective is as it always is – survival.

Any points against Celtic will be seen as a positive but Hamilton will take confidence from their last game. A 2-2 draw at Tynecastle against Hearts is a great result and they achieved it having gone behind twice. It was a performance and result they needed after a disappointing loss at home to Motherwell in the derby. Their only win in the league this season was a deserved 2-0 victory against Kilmarnock having lost heavily to newly promoted Ross County on the opening day of the campaign.

Celtic Preview – Will Celtic continue where they left off and make it five straight wins in the league?

Before the derby at Ibrox you could be forgiven for thinking that Celtic were the team who had it all to prove. The eight in a row champions and team who had won three straight trebles were seen as underdogs against their biggest rivals. Neil Lennon took even more satisfaction from the 2-0 success as a result of the attention on Rangers. Goals from Odsonne Edouard and Johnny Hayes continued Celtic’s 100% start to the league campaign and moved them three points clear of Rangers. Lennon will be well aware that it was just one game and there is still a lot of football to play.

This is the stage of the campaign where games will come thick and fast for the Hoops. As well as returning to league action this weekend the Europa League group stages begin on Thursday as they travel to face Rennes. With domestic cup action also on the horizon it will be a test of the depth of squad Lennon has at his disposal. A number of new faces arrived before the close of the transfer window and they will help with that. With injuries to key players there is a chance some of those arrivals will make their debut on Saturday.

Key-Facts – Hamilton v Celtic

  • Hamilton will be happy enough with their start and coming into this game on the back of a well earned point away to Hearts
  • Celtic were excellent last time out in the derby against Rangers and now hold a three point lead at the top of the Premiership
  • Celtic have won 13 of their last 14 meetings with Hamilton

Hamilton v Celtic Betting Advice

It won’t surprise many to note that Celtic have been dominant in this fixture in recent times. The champions have won 13 of their last 14 meetings with Hamilton. The Accies last win coming at Celtic Park five years ago. The odds indicate that it should be another three points for the visitors and that is the most likely outcome. What Rice has done with Hamilton, however, is make them harder to beat at home. The loss to Motherwell was their first loss in seven league games and just their second in their last 10.

The win over Rangers was important not only for the three points but also because it was another clean sheet which have been few and far between. The shutout was just the second in eight matches and that’s not good enough. Lennon will be hoping it’s the start of a run and this is a good opportunity for another. Take Celtic to win without conceding.
