Ross County vs Hamilton Academical
Date: Saturday, 19 December 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Global Energy Stadium, Dingwall.
The bottom two in Premiership meet on Saturday evening as Ross County host Hamilton Academical and both look desperate for points in an attempt to close the huge gap to the top 6 already. The visitors have had more to build on lately but come into the match with a thrashing loss to Hibs (0-4) behind them, which will have Brian Rice looking for a quick fix.
Accies held off Aberdeen (1-1) and beat Kilmarnock (1-0) in two outings beforehand and will surely want to bounce to such defensive performances before anything else. Still, they’ve had a hard time impressing when away from home and this could be even more worrying as Hamilton could find themselves rock-bottomed on Saturday!
Ross County have hardly been at their best too, though. They come into the match with comfortable losses to Rangers (0-4), Aberdeen (2-0), and Livingston (2-0) behind them. However, they have shocked Celtic (0-2) beforehand and regularly show off as a tough nut to crack at this ground – where Gers ended a streak of four games without a loss.

Ross County vs Hamilton Academical Prediction
We hope to see another exciting occasion on the day but we feel Ross County should show off as a tough side to outgun at Global Energy Stadium once again. With that in mind, we’re sticking with a Home win at 1.85 and hoping to see the attacking line in form once again.
Still, they could need just that and we expect them to score an extra goal to secure the points. We are backing a high-scoring game in Dingwall with Over 2.5 goals FT priced at 1.90 and catching the eye of many. We have been used to such head-to-head clashes at this ground and should now be in for the same despite the sides’ goalscoring struggles.
