Hearts vs Hamilton Academical Prediction
Hearts were given a run for their money in their last clash after Celtic run riot over them with a thumping 5-0 scorecard. The hosts were virtually invisible in the final third in that latter matchup, and finished the ninety minutes with just two shots on target, as opposed to their foes who managed six times that number.
With just one win from their past five games, there can be no surprises that the home team are still dwelling at the bottom of the ladder.
Meanwhile, Hamilton Academical have hardly hit the ground running in their respective campaign. Miserably, they are just one point ahead of the hosts at the moment and are currently sporting a six-match winless streak. That too, across various competitions.
To make matters worse, Hamilton Academical have just one measly win from their outings so far. It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have admitted defeat in eight of their past ten visits here.
On the other hand, Hearts have started to show promise in their recent clashes at home. In fact, they have been at the losing end just once in their past three Championship games here. Given the far from impressive form that the visitors are on, away from home, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Hearts in this one.
Furthermore, the hosts have been far too easy to breach here. Disappointingly, they have kept a clean sheet just once at home and have conceded twenty goals in the process as well.
In addition, the visitors have found the back of the net at least once in each of their past three outings on the trot. Taking into account that their last h2h meeting here also witnessed both teams get their names on the scoresheet together, expect Hamilton Academical to bag a consolation goal this weekend.
