With the winter break now at an end, foremost in Heart of Midlothian's minds' will be their weekend Scottish Cup fourth-round clash with Hibernian at Tynecastle on Sunday afternoon (Read our full Hearts v Hibs match preview by clicking on this link), however their first Premiership outing after the break sees them make the journey to Hamilton Academical's New Douglas Park on Wednesday evening and we fancy the Jambos' chances of heading home from Lanarkshire with the spoils in the bag.

Hearts will be desperate to close the gap between themselves and fourth-placed Hibernian although they were far from impressive in their closing games of 2017. Craig Levein's men inflicted upon Celtic their first domestic defeat of the season with a 4-0 hammering of the Hoops at Tynecastle last month, however Hearts failed to build on that undeniably impressive result and they went into the break on the back of three consecutive goal-less draws with St Johnstone, Hibernian and Aberdeen. Can they go one better when they travel to Hamilton on Wednesday evening? We believe so.

Hamilton Academical remain dangerously close to the relegation zone thanks to an unimpressive first-half of the season although their spirits will certainly have been lifted following their excellent 3-1 win at local rivals Motherwell in the final outing of 2017. Indeed Accies also grabbed for themselves a 2-0 win over Rangers at Ibrox in November and held Hearts to a 1-1 draw at Tynecastle at the start of last month, however we're far from confident that they can grab themselves a second win on the bounce when they host the Jambos on Wednesday evening.

Hearts are clearly capable of great things when they put their minds to it and their 4-0 win over Celtic last month was proof of that. They couldn't find a way past St Johnstone, Hibernian and Aberdeen in their subsequent three outings, however we have confidence in their ability to return to winning ways in Lanarkshire in this midweek outing.
