Recent respective form guides

Hamilton Academical's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. Accies have conceded a disappointing 9 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 2 of their own chances.

Hamilton Ac. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 5 points from 8 matches. Celtic's total of 17 points from their 8 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier.
