Two teams from the bottom half of the Scottish Championship meet on Saturday as bottom of the table Dunfermline host 6th place Hamilton. Dunfermline are having a miserable time of things lately and find themselves without a win in six matches. They host a Hamilton side bang in form who will be looking to make further climbs up the table. This should be a great game between two teams in real need of three vital points.
Following their relegation into the Scottish Championship, Hamilton would have expected more from their season, but the recent signs are positive following just one league defeat in their last five matches. They come up against a Dunfermline side who are really toiling and only have one win in their last seven matches. In that time frame the Pars have only picked up two points so must head to this match low on confidence. Surprisingly given the form of the two teams the betting is close with Hamilton only given a very slight edge. We can’t have any faith in the home team currently and will back Hamilton to come out on top in this one.
Over 2.5 goals
Dunfermline head into this match fresh off a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Morton and its difficult to think that there won’t be goals in this game. Interestingly both Hamilton and Dunfermline have the leagues worst defensive records having shifted 36 goals each this season. Dunfermline have seen three of their last five exceed the over 2.5 goal market and Hamilton have seen it surpassed in four of their last five. With both defences struggling we have to back the over 2.5 market in this one.
Both teams to score
With both sides really struggling at the back, the smart play has to be on both sides finding the back of the net in this one. Dunfermline have struggled to score lately so have only seen both teams score once in their last five games, whilst Hamilton has seen the feat achieved in four of their last five. We think that despite the differences in form between the sides this will be a game of chances and have to back both teams to find the back of the net.
