Hamilton Academical vs Ross County Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Hamilton were unable to stop the defending champions after losing 3-1 against Celtic in the midweek action. Olivier Ntcham produced a stunning goal to open the scoring, while James Forrest and Scott Sinclair were able to add further goals in the game to deny Hamilton any joy. Danny Redmond’s goal to cancel out Ntcham’s effort became a consolation for the away team. Ross County dropped a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Kilmarnock during the weekend. Christopher Routis and Jason Naismith scored in the first half to put Ross County in a strong position, but Eamonn Brophy pulled one back in the 61st minute before a late equaliser from Kris Boyd. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Ross County have been able to beat Hamilton in the recent two meetings, but both those games have been at the Global Energy Stadium. When it comes to matches at the SuperSeal Stadium, there is little to separate the two outfits with two stalemates in the last four meetings. Hamilton are winless in the last five home matches, but they have picked up three draws during this period. Ross County have been involved in two draws in the last four away games. A draw seems the likely result in this match.

This is a match that involves both teams on a poor run of form – at home in the case of Hamilton and on the road in the case of Ross County. The last two meetings between these two teams at the SuperSeal Stadium have witnessed under 2.5 goals. I would go with under 2.5 goals in this game.

Hamilton Academical Preview

Hamilton are coming up against four key matches to end 2017, as they can go a long way towards pushing the club into the top six or closer to the bottom. Hamilton went through a spirited run in November and some of the highlights were the away victory over Rangers. Yet, the team has been unable to build on these results and the home loss against teams like St Johnstone puts the club in a difficult position. Even after almost midway into the campaign, Hamilton are amongst the lowest scorers with just 17 goals so far. David Templeton, Rakish Bingham, and Giannis Skondras are the top scorers at the club with three goals each.

Hamilton Academical Team News

There are no suspensions or injuries for Hamilton ahead of this match.

Ross County Preview

The Ross County outfit do not seem to be closer towards a positive result – in fact, the team have been going away from this trend over the last few weeks. Immediately after the arrival of Owen Coyle, the club received a major boost in terms of confidence. However, this appears to have dissipated rather quickly with the team only managing two points from the last five games. The game against Kilmarnock did address the concerns about scoring goals, but the team has to improve a lot if they are to step away from the relegation battle. Craig Curran and Michael Gardyne are the top scorers with three goals each.

Ross County Team News

Ross County are without any suspension or injury worries coming into the game.
