Hamilton Academical ended their eight-game winless run with a 3-1 win at Dundee last weekend, but they have a tough assignment against second-placed Aberdeen at SuperSeal Stadium on Saturday.
The Accies have 11 points and currently sit in the eighth spot in the league table. Outside the top-four, the hosts have the best attack in the league with 17 goals. However, they have been far from dependable on the defensive front as they have the worst defence in the league behind bottom-placed Dundee.
Aberdeen will come into the game following a 2-1 home win over Ross County. The Dons have lost only once this season, and have managed to keep up the pace with leaders Celtic. As things stand, Derek McInnes’ side currently occupy the second spot and are just a solitary point behind the leaders.
Both sides have already played each other twice this season – once in the league and once in League Cup, and both games ended in favour of the Dons.
