Hamilton Academical vs Inverness CT Match Prediction

By Charlotte Louise Bushell

Hamilton began 2017 league fixtures in a disappointing fashion after a 3-0 loss against St Johnstone during the weekend. Despite having more possession and shots on target, Hamilton conceded three first-half goals to lose the game. Graham Cummins scored a brace while Murray Davidson came up with the third goal in the 74th minute. Inverness moved level on points with Hamilton after a goalless draw with Partick Thistle. Coach Richie Foran will be disappointed with his team only managing one shot on target in the entire 90 minutes.

Hamilton Academical Preview

Hamilton are still without a win since the narrow 1-0 victory over Aberdeen in October. Since then, the team has picked up a grand total of six points, and it has seen them slide down the table. An incredible 11 out of the 22 games have finished as a stalemate, as coach Martin Canning struggles to convert draws into victories. In recent games, however, Hamilton have struggled even to draw games. The team has picked up only one point since the 1-0 loss against Celtic in the middle of December. Alistair Crawford may be the club’s top scorer with seven goals, but only one of his goals have come at the SuperSeal Stadium.

Inverness CT Preview

Inverness have also been without a win since October and the memories of the handsome 3-0 away win over Motherwell seem to be fast disappearing. Inverness have scored more than a goal per game on average, and they have the best scoring record (26 goals) of any team in the bottom six. Yet, they have been let down immensely by the defending after having conceded more than any other team. The team will certainly take a lot of confidence from the goalless draw against Partick Thistle during the weekend, as it provided their first clean sheet since October.

Hamilton Team News

Canning has to deal with an injury list that includes Jesus Garcia (knee), Darren Lyon (groin), Gramoz Kurtaj (malleolar), Greg Docherty (metatarsal fracture), and Georgios Sarris (knee).

Inverness Team News

Kevin McNaughton, Lewis Horner, and Josh Meekings are struggling with knee injuries, and they might be unavailable for selection.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Hamilton have an extremely poor record against Inverness at the SuperSeal Stadium. Apart from the 1-1 draw in October, the team has lost the previous five meetings against Inverness at home. Hamilton have also failed to score in three of those five matches. Top scorer in Crawford struggling to translate his away form into goals at home. Inverness are also equally struggling with no wins since October. Hence, I would opt for a double chance between a draw or an Inverness victory.

Apart from the 4-3 rollercoaster success for Inverness towards the end of 2015, the last seven games between Hamilton and Inverness have produced under 2.5 goals. Hamilton and Inverness have scored three and four goals respectively in the last five matches, and they are not in great goalscoring form at the moment. Hence, I see value in backing under 2.5 goals.
