Partick Thistle vs Hamilton Academical
Date: Saturday, 23 December 2017
Kick-Off: 15:00 UK
Venue: The Energy Check Stadium (Glasgow).
Hamilton Academical managed a highly-important 3-2win over Ross County last weekend to escape on a six-point gap above the rock-bottomed Partick Thistle. The Accies are now just about to take on the last-placed side which is a perfect occasion for them to make it back-to-back wins and try and even join the top six battle at this stage.
The Jags are the league’s weakest side and the look at the Premiership standings will just confirm it, They’ll come into this after losing four of last five league ties and they’ve failed to score a single goal in back-to-back defeats to Dundee and Celtic.
The win over Ross County was the first in five matches for the Accies who’ve clinched it thanks to a late own goal from Jamie Lindsay. Midfielder Dougie Imrie produced a fine display as he delivered a nice pass for the second goal after netting the first one from the spot. His set pieces will be the main threat to Partick’s goal here and if you are to back the anytime goalscorer pick, Imrie is your best call at the sky-high odds of 7.00.
As for Hamilton’s attacking options, Chris Erskine should be the man to look after being their key figure in the final third, but he only scored a single goal in last 11 matches.
