Hibernian are slowly, but surely, catching up with the likes of Rangers and Aberdeen in the league, and they can further improve their situation when they play their game in hand on Tuesday. Hibernian will host Hamilton Academical at Easter Road on Tuesday.
Hibs are undefeated in their last seven league games, and they come into this game following a comfortable 2-0 home win over Partick Thistle on Saturday. Neil Lennon’s side sit just four points behind Rangers and Aberdeen, and a runner-up finish now looks within the realm of possibility.
Hibs were playing in the second-tier last season, and it’s a huge accomplishment for them that they are competing for European places now.
The Accies come into this game following back-to-back defeats. On Saturday, they lost 2-0 at high-flying Kilmarnock.
Back-to-back wins Partick and Motherwell during February-March helped the Accies move away from the bottom two, but the danger is still not over yet. Hamilton sit in the ninth spot with 30 points, which means they have a five-point advantage on Partick in the eleventh spot.
Surprisingly, Hibs are yet to defeat their opponents this season. Back in August, Hamilton registered a 3-0 away over Hibs, and almost three months later, both sides played a 1-1 draw.
