This clash promises to be a good one. Both teams are flying high on confidence after their latest games. Killie scored in the last minute to beat Ross County in a thrilling 3-2 victory, while Hamilton demolished Inverness 3-0 at the Superseal Stadium in midweek. Both teams will be looking to build on these fantastic results, and will really go at each other on Saturday.
Hamilton have had their ups and downs this season, and are three points above bottom of the table Inverness. Their form this season has mostly been dependant on the form of star man Ali Crawford. This is good news for Killie fans, as there is some doubt over whether Crawford will play or not. He had to go off injured after half an hour against Inverness, so we’ll have to wait and see what the outcome is.
Team selection will be a tricky one for Lee Clark this week. Does he start with Osborne after his half hour horror show on Saturday, or does he take a gamble on Gary Dicker at centre-back, who was outstanding in that position. It’s a tough dilemma for Lee Clark, one which he has to call right.
And how will the new recruits fit into the team? Will Clark start Connor Sammon in place or Boydy, or will he keep the faith in the veteran striker? If I were Lee Clark, I would try and find a way to play them both up top together, which could work out very well. Hopefully Boydy can feed the fish and he will score!
PREDICTION: Hamilton 0-2 Killie
