Hamilton lost 3-0 to Hearts during the midweek, but they would hope to open their account in 2018 when they host Dundee at SuperSeal Stadium on Saturday.
The defeat to Hearts came following a 2-0 cup defeat at Motherwell, but the Accies have recently picked up league wins over Ross County and Well. The hosts find themselves a solitary point above their opponents, and they would hope to salvage at least a draw from this game.
Ahead of the game, the Accies sit in the ninth place with 23 points. Dundee are just behind in the tenth spot with 22 points, but they have played a game more than their opponents.
Dundee will come into the game on the back of a 1-0 home defeat to Hibernian. In the long run, Dundee have managed to lose only two of their last five games. However, they still find themselves on the brink of the relegation zone, and they will be desperate to get anything out of this game.
Both sides have played each other twice this season, and on both occasions, the Accies have come out on top. Hamilton claimed a 3-0 home win over their opponents in August, and then they prevailed 3-1 at Dens Park in October.
