Recent respective form guides

Hamilton Academical's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Accies have scored 7, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Raith Rovers's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Rovers have hit 5 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Hamilton Academical's 26 points from 20 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 5th position.

Raith Rovers are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 21 points from 21 matches.
