St. Mirren vs Hamilton Academical
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 21 September 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: The Simple Digital Arena (Paisley).
Things have not been going well for St Mirren who are sporting a very dismal losing streak. The hosts have been on the road for the past two weeks, both of which saw them lose by a 2-1 scorecard. Their last clash at home with Rangers turned out no different after their foes managed to slot the only goal of the game to deprive St Mirren of all three points.
Hamilton Academical have just one win under their belt so far, that too in the comforts of their home. However, the visitors were handed a defeat in their most recent match at home which saw the reigning champions’ Celtic win by a narrow 1-0 scoreline.
The away side have not registered a win in any of their last four games across various competitions either and will have their work cut out for them this weekend when they make the trip to Paisley.

St. Mirren vs Hamilton Academical Prediction
The home team may have been at the losing end in their last two games in a row but two their defense, they were without home advantage in both of those games. Furthermore, the only defeat that they succumbed to at home was against Rangers who came in behind the titleholders in the previous edition.
Jim Goodwin’s men have tasted success in two of their last three clashes here as well, one of which was against Aberdeen in the league.
On the other hand, their foes for the weekend are winless in their last two outings in the Premiership. Taking into account that Hamilton have not got the better of St Mirren in any of their previous overall matches either, St Mirren are sizing up as the favorites to secure the bragging rights in this one.
Six of their last seven head to head clashes here have finished with a maximum of two goals or less on the scoresheets. Considering that their last machup with each other at this venue was also a low scoring one, count on St Mirren to seal the deal with under 2.5 goals on the scorecards.
