Hibernian vs Hamilton Academical Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Hibernian lost a 2-0 lead and ended up drawing the game against Kilmarnock during the weekend. Lennon saw his team get a huge advantage in the game, Florian Kamberi scored inside the minute and Ryan Porteous doubled the advantage inside the 10th minute. Kilmarnock, though, came back in brilliant fashion after Jordan Jones’ 58th-minute goal. Three minutes later, Kris Boyd had his penalty saved but he converted from the rebound to level the scores. Hamilton picked up a first win in six after a 2-1 victory over Partick Thistle. Conor Sammon’s ninth-minute penalty was a setback for Hamilton, but the lead lasted only two minutes as Antonio Rojano scored from a corner. A late goal from David Templeton provided a win for Hamilton.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The spirited run of form shown by Hibernian led to three consecutive victories before the run was haunted by Kilmarnock. It was down to a defensive lapse once again, as Hibernian continue to struggle for clean sheets – especially at home. Since November, Hibernian have kept just one clean sheet at the Easter Road stadium. Even though Hamilton are not prolific in front of goal, the team has scored six goals in the last four games. Hamilton have also scored in both games against Hibernian this season. I would back both teams to score. Since both teams are capable of finding the back of the net in this game, there is a higher chance of a high-scoring match. In fact, 69% of the home matches for Hibernian and 67% of the away games for Hamilton have been with over 2.5 goals. I would back over 2.5 goals in this fixture.

Hibernian Preview

Hibernian have had a good run of late, but the club’s achievements so far in the campaign could be usurped by the likes of Kilmarnock. Hibernian may remain in the fourth place going into the 29th match of the SPL 2017-18 campaign, but Kilmarnock have the potential to come within six points – if Steve Clarke’s team continue on this rich vein. Hibernian’s dropped points during the weekend led to Aberdeen opening up a four-point advantage. Lennon was sent to the stands during the weekend and the 46-year-old showed signs of pressure. After having done so well in the campaign, Hibernian would not be happy with a Europa League play-off place. Among the current players, John McGinn is the top scorer at the club alongside Martin Boyle – with five goals each.

Hibernian Team News

Ross Laidlaw (shoulder), Steven Whittaker (pelvis), David Gray (Achilles tendon), and Brandon Barker (knee) are the players unavailable for Lennon.

Hamilton Academical Preview

The win over Partick Thistle would have been doubly sweet for Hamilton as it was a late win that came after a run of five straight defeats. Hamilton have opened a five point advantage over Ross County at the bottom, while Martin Canning’s team also have two games in hand. This happens to be such a huge advantage that Hamilton could ideally be just three points behind Motherwell in the seventh place. Such a proposition, however, looks unlikely as Hamilton have less than a 30% success rate this season. David Templeton and Dougie Imrie lead the scoring charts at the club with five goals each.

Darian Mackinnon (knee) is the only player on the sidelines for Hamilton.
