Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Fir Park will host Sunday’s festive fixture between Motherwell and Hamilton Academical. The Well did well to beat Kilmarnock on Boxing Day, with the team quickly bouncing back from a 2-0 loss to Rangers. Stephen Robinson’s men are enjoying a very successful season, and we predict that they are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration on Sunday.
Before the defeat to Steven Gerrard’s troops, Motherwell recorded four consecutive wins at home ground, and that is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Hamilton. The visitors, on the other hand, recorded a hard-fought 2-1 win over Hearts, with the team putting an end to their three-match losing run in the national championship. The relegation strugglers have yet to record a win on the road in the 2019/2020 season, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling the Well’s party at Fir Park.
Highlighted Player (Allan Campbell):
Born in Glasgow, Scotland, on July 4, 1998, Allan Campbell is a Scottish footballer who plays for Motherwell. Campbell has been playing for the Steelmen since 2008 when he was a part of the Motherwell youth team.
The Scottish midfielder made his Premier League debut on October 29, 2016, in a 4-1 win over Ross County, and he scored his first goal in the Scottish top flight in a 4-2 victory over Inverness on April 15, 2017. Allan Campbell has 19 caps for the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the Scotland senior team. His primary position is a defensive midfielder, but he is used as a central midfielder as well.
The Scottish footballer wears the number 6 shirt at Motherwell. In his youth days, Allan Campbell attended All Saints Roman Catholic Secondary School in Glasgow. He joined Motherwell football academy at the age of 10.
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.
