Hamilton Academical vs St Johnstone
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Wednesday, 6th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Hope CBD Stadium (Hamilton).
The Saints had to endure two matches in a row against the league-toppers, and it sure has affected their recent stats, which surely is not an accurate depiction of their form or talent. The organizers must really like seeing the fans from Perth attaching their emotions to the tip of a pendulum, as next, they take on one of the worst teams in the Premiership.
Tommy Wright and his men will approach this game with caution, knowing they just cannot afford to mess it up.
In terms of goals, there’s no team that has posted worse records than the Accies. They have scored the least number of goals, conceded the most, and let past more goals than anyone at home. The team has recorded just 15 points so far, and needs another 15 out of thin air, to at least touch the safety mark for now.
Hamilton Academical vs St Johnstone: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The last seven games in a row saw the Saints taking three points.
- The team from Perth kept clean sheets in four of the last six h2h ties.
- Tommy Wright’s men won the last three ties at the Hope CBD Stadium.
- The Saints managed to score in six of their last seven attempts at this stadium.
Hamilton Academical vs St Johnstone: Prediction
The Accies are on a streak of ten winless games and managed to win just twice in their last 19 attempts. At home, they have not tasted a win in the last six tries and were winless in 13 of their last 15 games. The yo-yo club that has won six of their last eight trips away from home, and their last three to the Hope CBD Stadium, is expected to win comfortably.
After the terrible schedule, the team had to deal with, St.Johnstone will be wary to not prolong that streak. They have got an easier opponent for the time being, and it’s important for them to take full advantage of it. Expect them to play for the win, while keeping it safe. It’s highly unlikely that the hosts will get a decent shot at the nets, let alone convert one.
