Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Saturday’s football game at the Simple Digital Arena pits together St. Mirren and Hamilton, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the standings. St. Mirren have already secured the Premiership survival, while Hamilton’s elite division status is in great danger. The Saints impressed in a 3-1 win over Ross County, and it is no wonder they are seen as favourites to beat Hamilton at home ground.
Since attacker Eamonn Brophy remains the only absentee in Jim Goodwin’s team, we believe that home win should be considered. The Accies, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom of the table, and given the number of absentees in the away team, we are positive that Brian Rice’s men are going to return home empty-handed. Hughes is sidelined through suspension, while all Fulton, Martin, Ogboe, Templeton, Want, and Winter are out of contention with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Marcus Fraser):
Marcus Fraser is a Scottish footballer who plays for Ross County as a defender. Fraser is a product of Celtic football school, but he made no more than one appearance for the Hoops in the Scottish Premier League. He played his only game for the Scottish giants in a 3-1 win at Inverness on February 9, 2013.
After ending his loan spell with Cowdenbeath, Marcus Fraser signed a deal with Ross County in 2015. Over the years, the defender has established himself as a first-team regular with the Staggies, making 26 appearances in the Scottish top flight last term.
Speaking of his international career, Fraser has five caps for the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. His main position on the field is a right-back, but he is capable of producing good performances as a centre-back as well. Marcus Fraser was born in Bishopbriggs, Scotland, on June 23, 1994.
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.
