Last Meeting

Kevin Holt scored a first half goal that gave Dundee a 1-0 win over Hamilton Accies at Dens Park last May, guaranteeing The Dee wouldn’t finish in the Premiership’s automatic relegation spot. Holt might have won the man of the match award, but it was goalkeeper Elliott Parish who triggered the loudest roar of the day with a match-winning penalty save from Dougie Imrie on 86 minutes to ensure the Dee secured the win they needed and deserved.

Hamilton’s Season So Far

Hamilton’s season started with a disastrous defeat away at Annan in the Betfred Cup and after draws with Livingston and Airdrieonians and a 4-0 win at Berwick, it was not enough to progress from the group.

Accies opened their Premiership campaign with a 4-1 defeat at home to Hearts but followed that up with a welcome 1-0 win at Fir Park in the Lanarkshire derby.

Accies however went to lose their next three games to Celtic, St Johnstone and Livingston before defeating St Mirren 3-0 at home in their last match to put them six points ahead of The Dee.
