Aberdeen took advantage of Rangers’ absence from the league calendar during midweek to reclaim the second spot with a 4-2 win at Ross County on Wednesday.
Following their defeat at Rangers, the Dons have won back-to-back games in the Premiership and they will be favourites to continue their winning run when they host Hamilton Academical at Pittodrie on Saturday.
The Dons now have a three-point lead over Rangers and occupy the second spot with 49 points. However, they have played a game more than the Glasgow club.
In their last two games, the Dons have scored a total of seven goals, and we can see them continue their scoring run against Hamilton.
Hamilton have lost their last two games in the league. The Accies find themselves worryingly close to the relegation zone as they sit in the tenth spot with 23 points, level on points with Partick Thistle in tenth.
Surprisingly, the Accies picked up more points on the road than at home this season, but we don’t see them getting anything out of this game.
Both sides have already played each other twice in the league this season. The first game at Pittodrie ended 2-0 in favour of the Dons, but Hamilton managed a 2-2 draw in their home game.
