Hibernian vs Hamilton Academical Prediction
Hibernian failed to bounce back from a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Livingston in their last clash in the Premiership and were held to a 2-2 draw by Dundee United earlier this week in the Scottish Cup. The hosts have now tasted success just once in their last five games in all competitions.
It is also worth mentioning that the home team have dropped points in four of their past six fixtures in the top flight, and are currently sitting sixth on the table, with twenty-five points to their name.
On the other hand, Hamilton Academical will be making the trip to Easter Road on the back of a thumping 5-0 win over Edinburgh City in their respective Scottish Cup clash. Be that as it may, the visitors have not been coping well in the top flight this term.
They have picked up the win just four times so far, and are at the moment, just five points shy of hitting rock bottom in the cluster as well. To make matters worse, Hamilton Academical have tasted success just once in their last nine trips on the road in the league.
Taking into account that they have also been admitting back to back defeats in their past three visits here, count on Hibernian to secure all three points this Wednesday.
Furthermore, goals have been in abundance at this stadium as of late. All of the previous seven clashes here have featured over 2.5 goals on the final scorecards.
Considering that four of their past five h2h meetings here have also been high scoring affairs, expect no dearth of goals in this one either.
