Recent respective form guides

Hamilton Academical's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Accies have scored 8, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Rangers's away form is none too clever either, with 3 victories and just 1 loss from the last six. Those games have seen the The Gers pummel 14 goals, and let in 7.

Hamilton Ac. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 16 points from 17 matches. Rangers are leading the way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, with their 19 games giving them a return of 44 points.
