It's All Academic: A Celtic-Hamilton Accies Preview

Leigh Griffiths celebrates after opening the scoring vs Hamilton in December

CELTIC V HAMILTON ACCIES (SATURDAY 25TH FEBRUARY 2017, 3PM)

Celtic look to continue smashing records in our second home league game in a row, this time against 11th placed Hamilton Accies

Team Selection: With Leigh Griffiths back in the squad I would expect him to be on the bench, Stuart Armstrong to replace Liam Henderson in the starting line-up also seems a certainty. Kieran Tierney will start after somehow avoiding leg amputation last week.

Previous Meetings: We played Hamilton twice in December, the first game at Celtic Park ending in a 1-0 Celtic victory, Leigh Griffths with the only goal. The return game at New Douglas Park featured a much better performance, as ten men Celtic won 3-0 in terrible conditions, the highlight being a piledriver of a strike from Stuart Armstrong.

Prediction: Brendan Rodgers will want no letting up from his team as the season gets to the most important time of the season, as a result I expect a comfortable Celtic victory.
