Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Ross County will be aiming to escape from the danger zone when they take on Hamilton in the penultimate game of the season. Ross County desperately needed a win against Dundee United, and they managed to get one. The Staggies regained a much-needed confidence on Matchday 36, but they can’t afford any complacency in the midweek game. Hamilton are fighting hard to avoid relegation as well.
The visitors are three points behind the safe zone, and seeing that they are likely to go for a win in Wednesday’s clash as well, over 2.5 goals betting option should be considered. All Grivosti, Morris, and Randall are sidelined with injuries for the hosts, while Fulton, Martin, Ogboe, Templeton, Want, and Winter are unlikely to feature for the visiting team. In their last meeting in the Scottish top flight Ross County defeated Hamilton 2-1.
Highlighted Player (Ross Doohan):
Born in Clydebank, Scotland on March 29, 1998, Ross Doohan is a talented goalkeeper who plays for Ross County on loan from Celtic. Doohan is a product of the Celtic football academy, but he has yet to see a game action with the Hoops in the Premiership.
The 186-cm tall shot-stopper played for the likes of Cumbernauld Colts, Greenock Morton, and Ayr United as well before signing a loan deal with Ross County. Ross Doohan made his Ross County debut in the Premier League in a goalless draw with Hibernian on October 17, 2020.
Speaking of his international career, the Ross County goalkeeper has 11 caps with the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. He made his debut for the U21 team in a 1-1 draw with Togo U21 at the 2018 World Youth Festival in Toulon. His preferred foot is right.
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.
