Livingston vs Hamilton
Date: Wednesday, 10 February 2021
Kick-Off at 18.00 UK
Venue: Tony Macaroni Arena.
Hamilton shockingly took a point in Sunday’s home fixture against table-toppers Rangers. Midfielder Ross Callachan bagged a late stoppage-time equalizer to prevent his team’s third consecutive defeat.
A point from the previous round generally means little to the rock-bottomed team who are miles away from saving the top-tier status this term. Nevertheless, it might have a massive impact on the side’s confidence ahead of the last regular season games before the relegation round.
The Accies, who have won just five games this season, will have a very tough task to back up the mentioned draw on Wednesday when they travel to Tony Macaroni Arena to take on the top-half Livingston.
The challenge will be even tougher if we know the Lions will be highly motivated to bounce back from an unexpected home defeat to St. Johnstone on Saturday (1-2).
Livingston vs Hamilton Head-to-head
- The Accies could rely on the head to head tradition going into this contest. They lead the tie by four wins ahead of the 38th meeting with Livingston.
- The Lions picked up a 0-2 victory in the previous clash against Hamilton, though.
- Three or more goals were seen in four of the last six meetings between the two outfits.
Livingston vs Hamilton Prediction
Livingston have been playing very well throughout the season. They occupy the sky-high 5th place in the Championship standings and will likely feature the championship round in the post-season (they need a top-six finish for that).
David Martindale’s men have been very tough to break down lately but somehow conceded two goals in an unexpected home defeat to St. Johnstone at the weekend. They had previously kept four successive clean sheets across competitions.
The mentioned defeat was Livingston’s first in the last 15 games in all competitions. Luckily for Martindale, his men are now up against the worst team in the division and will have a great opportunity to rebound straight away.
The home win should be a banker at the 1.40 odds, while we will be brave enough and back the hosts to win to nil at the 2.25 odds.
The second bet will be Under 2.5 goals FT at the 2.00 odds since the visitors have also improved defensively of late.
