Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Aberdeen play host to Hamilton at their Pittodrie Stadium in a postponed fixture. The Dons aim to overtake Hibernian in the third position in the Premiership standings, and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Accies. Aberdeen are eyeing their fourth home win of the season, but they can’t afford any complacency in Tuesday’s football match.
Even though boss McInnes is likely to mix the squad this time out, home win should be considered as Hamilton experienced all sorts of problems in a 5-3 defeat to St. Johnstone. The Accies have collected only seven points from possible 30, and given Aberdeen’s fine start to the season, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. Ronan Hughes is widely expected to return to the starting XI for the visitors after scoring a brace in the loss to St. Johnstone.

Highlighted Team (Hamilton):
Nicknamed the Accies, Hamilton are the Scottish Premier League club founded back in 1874. Hamilton’s home ground is New Douglas Park, the venue which was opened in 2001. The capacity of the stadium is only 6,018. The Accies clinched their first domestic trophy in the 1985/86 season, with the team finishing the process eleven points clear of second-placed Falkirk.
Two seasons later, Hamilton repeated the success, with the team clinching their third and last Scotland Premier League trophy in the 2007/2008 season. The Accies wear white shirts with red stripes when playing at home ground, while blue and green are the dominant colours of their away kit. Fellow clubs based in Lanarkshire, Motherwell, and Albion Rovers, are considered the club’s main rivals.
Speaking of the club’s biggest win, you should bear in mind that Hamilton outclassed Morton 10-0 in May 2014. Crystal Palace midfielder James McCarthy is considered one of the most notable footballers who started their senior career at Hamilton.
