Hibernian, following on from their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after the 2-0 Premiership triumph versus Aberdeen.

A recurring characteristic of more recent Hibernian games is the number of results with a nil in them.
From their previous sextet of matches before this one, in as many as 5 of them a wager on "Both Teams to Score" would've been a loser.
Coming into this contest, Hibernian are unbeaten in the league by Hamilton Academical in their previous 9 matches. A long run without a loss.

The numbers tell their own story, and Hamilton Academical have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, seeing opposing sides hit 7 goals in total. In defence, The Accies could really do with shoring things up. That trend isn’t assured to be sustained into this game, however.
Going into this game, the form guide shows that Hamilton Academical:
- have not registered a win against Hibernian when they've played them away from home in the last 5 league games. Not good at all.
- are unbeaten in their last 2 away league matches.
Head to head

Team News: Hibernian
Looking at personnel, there is just one fitness concern for the Hibernian gaffer Jack Ross to be concerned about from an otherwise fully-primed squad. Sean Mackie (Hamstring Injury) misses out.
Team News: Hamilton Academical
Thanks to a completely injury-free group available to select from, Hamilton Academical boss Brian Rice does not have any fitness concerns whatsoever coming into this game.
We feel that in this game, Hibernian will more than likely be able to score a couple when they face Hamilton Academical, who might well find it a difficult task finding the net themselves.
We’re therefore anticipating a pretty comfortable 2-0 margin for Hibernian come full-time.
