Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Hamilton and Kilmarnock face each other at Hope CBD Stadium in the last game of the regular season. Hamilton failed to secure the Premiership survival, and, as a result, they have nothing to play for in Sunday’s clash. Considering that the Accies failed to impress in a 2-1 loss to Ross County, home win should not be considered. All Fulton, Martin, Ogboe, Templeton, Want, and Winter are likely to miss the game through injuries.
The Killie, on the other hand, will participate in the Premiership relegation playoffs. Considering that Kilmarnock boss Tommy Wright is likely to mix the squad in Sunday’s game, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Both Haunstrup and Whitehall are pushing for a start, while Kabamba is likely to miss the game through injury. You should bear in mind that under 2.5 goals have been netted in three of the previous four meetings between the two clubs.
Highlighted Player (Scott McMann):
Born on July 9, 1996, Scott McMann is a Scottish footballer who plays for Hamilton Academical as a defender. His primary position is a centre-back, but he is used as both left and right back as well. Scott McMann is a product of the Hamilton Academical football academy, and he has been playing for the senior team since 2013.
In 2016 he made seven appearances in the league during his loan spell with Clyde. McMann, who represented both Scotland U16 and U17 teams in the past, wears the number 3 on his shirt. The right-footed defender made his Scotland Premier League debut with Hamilton in a 1-0 win over St Mirren on May 23, 2015.
The Scottish footballer scored his first goal for the club in a 3-1 win at Clyde in the League Cup on July 17, 2019. Scott McMann wears the number 3 jersey at Hamilton Academical.
Highlighted Team (Kilmarnock):
Founded on January 5, 1869, Kilmarnock are the oldest professional club in Scotland. The Killie welcome their opponents at Rugby Park, the stadium with the artificial turf. The venue, which was opened back in August 1899, can hold up to 17,889 people.
Kilmarnock won their first and only Scotland Premier League trophy in the 1964/65 season despite being level on points with Hearts at the end of the season. Fellow Ayrshire club Ayr United are considered the Killie’s bitterest rivals. The two teams have been facing each other in the Ayrshire derby since September 1910.
Dark blue is the dominant colour of the club’s home kit, while Kilmarnock footballers wear yellow and blues kit when playing on the travels. The Killie recorded their biggest win back in 1896, with the team beating Saltcoats Victoria 13-2 in the second round of the Scottish Qualifying Cup. The club suffered their biggest defeat in August 1938 as they were hammered by Celtic 9-1 in the Scottish League Division.
