To say that Hibernian boss Neil Lennon wasn't a happy man following his side's 2-2 draw with Kilmarnock last time out would be a huge understatement. The Hibees surged into a two-goal lead at Rugby Park at the weekend, only for the home side to claw their way back and claim a share of the spoils at the final whistle. Lennon was naturally furious with this result although it did extend his side's unbeaten run to four matches and they remain very much in the hunt for a top-three finish in the Scottish Premiership. Nevertheless they failed to take full advantage of the fact that Aberdeen suffered defeat at the weekend and Lennon will be looking to his side to take a maximum points haul when Hamilton Academical visit Easter Road on Wednesday evening.

It will be no easy task however given that the Accies have been showing signs of improvement in recent weeks. The visitors put three past Rangers in an eight-goal thriller at New Douglas Park earlier this month and they followed this by beating Partick Thistle 2-1 at home in their last outing. Not only that but Hamilton won 3-1 in their last visit to Easter Road earlier this season and they held Hibernian to a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture at New Douglas Park. Nevertheless the fact remains that Accies have suffered defeat in all-but-three of their last ten Scottish Premiership outings and while we envisage the visitors adding to the scoreline in Leith on Wednesday evening, they continue to haemorrhage goals and we'll be siding with the Hibees to keep the pressure on the top-three by collecting all three points in front of their home fans.
