Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Fountain of Youth Stadium will host Saturday’s football game between Hamilton and St. Mirren, the two teams who were beaten by Celtic and Motherwell respectively in midweek. The Accies are on a nine-game winless run in the Scottish Premier League, meaning that they head into the relegation six-pointer with the lack of confidence. However, we predict that Hamilton, who produced a fine display in the 2-1 loss at Celtic Park, are capable of matching St. Mirren on home soil.
The Saints are on a three-match losing run in the Scottish top flight, with the team experiencing all sorts of problems at the back in the 3-0 loss to Motherwell. Seeing that Hamilton will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in the Scotland Premiership, we are tempted to put our money on Jim Goodwin’s charges.
