Hamilton Academical have been too hot to handle in their last five h2h meetings here. With St. Mirren at their worst on the road this season, count on the hosts to give their counterparts a run for their money come Saturday.

Hamilton Academical vs St. Mirren Head to head (h2h)

Their last clash ended as a stalemate.

Both teams have found the back of the net together twice in their previous five matchups.

Six of their past ten games have featured fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts.

Two out of their last ten fixtures have finished in a tie.

St Mirren have registered a win five times in their past fifteen encounters. (W-5, D-4, L-6)

Hamilton Academical vs St. Mirren Prediction

Hamilton Academical have been alternating between defeats and draws in their last four games on the trot, the most recent of which was a 2-1 loss at the hands of Celtic on the road. Miserably, it has now been over two months since the home side last had a taste of success.

With no more than twelve points to their name, the hosts are now sitting tenth in a cluster of twelve.

On the other hand, St Mirren have been faring even worse. The visiting contingent have been admitting back to back defeats in their previous three matchups, and have picked up a win just once in their past seven fixtures.

To pile on even more misery, the guests are yet to come out on top, on the road, this season. They have also been branded as the weakest away side in the table, as far as statistics go, with zero points to their tally.

Furthermore, St Mirren have not coped well in their past visits here, and have not secured the bragging rights in any of their previous five.

As such, the visitors' chances of a win are certainly looking bleak. Be that as it may, the home side have salvaged no more than a point in half of their last four games here.

Taking into account that their previous meeting with this foe at this venue also ended in a tie, the safest punt would be opting for a double chance.

Additionally, the guests have lost without finding the back of the net in half of their last eight outings. Considering that seven of their past ten h2h meetings here have also been low scoring affairs, it is certainly safe to expect more of the same in this one as well.
