Partick Thistle vs Hamilton Academical Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Partick Thistle fell to yet another away defeat, as Celtic were able to get a comfortable 2-0 win in the midweek action. Stuart Armstrong scored from a spectacular long-range effort in the 35th minute to open the scoring, and the home team were able to double their advantage in the second half when Kieran Tierney scored in the 67th minute. Hamilton picked up a first win in five games after beating Ross County 3-2 at the SuperSeal Stadium. Hamilton lost the lead twice, as goals from Dougie Imrie and Giorgos Sarris were cancelled out by Craig Curran and Kenny van der Weg. However, Jamie Lindsay’s late own goal secured three points for Hamilton. The feisty game saw Michael Gardyne and Giannis Skondras sent off towards the closing stages.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Hamilton come into the game after having last secured an away victory over Partick Thistle back in 2014. Even though the overall form for Partick Thistle makes for a very bad reading, Martin Canning’s team have beaten three out of the last four opponents at the Energy Check stadium. After having won the recent home game against Hamilton, Partick Thistle will be quietly confident of success. I would go with a home win in this game. Both teams have been in a mediocre shape with regards to scoring and conceding goals over the last six matches. The last three meetings between Partick Thistle and Hamilton have ended up as low scoring games. I see more opportunities for the same in this game with total goals expected to be less than 2.5.

Partick Thistle Preview

The recent form makes for a very bad reading for Partick Thistle, as the team has lost four out of the last five league matches. It may not come as a major surprise that the club are stuck to the bottom of the table for the last few weeks, but a lifeline may come in the form of teams like Ross County also struggling for results. In order to leapfrog Ross County, Partick Thistle may have to switch their attention towards the away form. All of the three league victories for the club have been at the Energy Check stadium. Blair Spittal and Chris Erskine lead the scoring charts with four goals each.

Partick Thistle Team News

Manager Alan Archibald will be without Callum Booth (cruciate ligament), Christie Elliott (ankle), Stuart Bannigan (knee), and Abdul Osman (shoulder) due to injuries.

Hamilton Academical Preview

The string of bad results was threatening to put the top six out of the reach for Hamilton, but the team has given themselves a major lifeline with the win over Ross County. The manner of the victory will pump fresh blood into the hearts of Hamilton who had managed only two wins in the previous 15 games. Hamilton are almost at equidistance from the top six places and the bottom. This should be a source of concern for the manager, who is looking to revive the club’s home form. Over the last six games, only St Johnstone have picked up fewer points at home than Hamilton. David Templeton, Dougie Imrie, Rakish Bingham, and Giannis Skondras all now lead the scoring charts at the club with three goals each.

Hamilton Academical Team News

Hamilton manager Martin Canning has a fully fit squad at his disposal.
