Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
After sharing the spoils with Hearts in their last league match, Hamilton will be looking to return to winning ways in the Scotland Premier League when they host Motherwell at their Fountain of Youth Stadium. The Accies will be without Jamie Hamilton against Motherweel as the defender was sent off in the 2-2 draw with Hearts. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Greece international Mario Ogboe, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late.
The Well, on the other hand, are on a three-game losing run in the national championship. Head coach Stephen Robinson is under big pressure ahead of the trip to Hamilton, and, no doubt, his men will give 100% to grab something from the match. Belgian attacker Christy Manzinga is sidelined through suspension, but regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting XI, we predict that the visitors are going to share the spoils with Hamilton, who do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment.
