Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Buoyed by a 2-1 win over St. Mirren, Dundee United will be looking to retain their spot in top six when they take on Hamilton at Hope CBD Stadium. The Terrors put an end to their three-game losing run at the weekend, and, no doubt, the triumph gave them a confidence boost. Dundee United are eyeing their third away win of the season, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for them.
Hamilton have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating the likes of Motherwell and Livingston, while losing to Rangers and Kilmarnock. The hosts are eager to return to winning ways in the Scotland Premier League, but share of spoils is on the cards at Hope CBD Stadium as Dundee Utd produced a fine display in the 2-1 win over St. Mirren.
