Hamilton vs St. Johnstone
Date: Tuesday, 8th May 2018
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: New Douglas Park (Hamilton).
Hamilton are under pressure following the narrow 1-0 defeat against Dundee FC in the relegation six-pointer. The Accies could have salvaged at least a point if not for a late penalty miss from club captain Dougie Imrie.
In a nutshell, the poor run of Hamilton continues as they lost 7 of their last 8 league games. And now they need at least 4 points from the remaining 2 games to avoid relegation depending on results elsewhere.
St. Johnstone were 7 points above safety when they travelled to Motherwell on the weekend. With little pressure, the team put on a fantastic display and bagged a 5-1 win aided by hat-trick of goals from Steven MacLean. It is a perfect farewell for the veteran forward who will move to Rangers in the summer.
The Saints have been not in best of forms as well, but the big win on Saturday put them in good spirits. Tommy Wright’s team had drawn 2 and lost 2 of the previous 4 before the rout at Motherwell.
Hamilton vs St. Johnstone Head-to-head
St. Johnstone won the three Scottish Premiership games of the current campaign against Hamilton by exact 1 goal.
The Saints had lost just 1 of their last 10 league games to Hamilton, 6 wins and 3 draws.
Hamilton vs St. Johnstone Prediction
Hamilton has been in terrible form off late and things haven’t gone well at their own turf as well. This is a team that lost 10 of their 18 home games this season, but a win on Tuesday is required to stay in the safe zone.
St. Johnstone are not a consistent side, though they are capable of producing some intriguing displays from time to time. They are team out of relegation threat and therefore they will play with much freedom, which is bad news for the hosts.
Furthermore, the Saints have an excellent h2h record in away games against Hamilton. Therefore, it will be wise to back the away team to avoid a defeat here.
