Celtic beat Hamilton three times last season - and kept a clean sheet every time.

Which was an improvement on the season before, when they beat Accies three times but conceded in every game.

In 2017/18 it was three wins, three clean sheets, the season before a goal conceded in every game again.

The lesson being, history tells you nothing about Hamilton Academical versus Celtic matches!

More recent trends are telling.

Celtic's clean sheet in the Old Firm derby last time out was their first in the Premier League since the opening day and Hamilton will fancy their chances of adding to the Hoops' defensive discomfiture.

That won't come in a winning cause, of course.

Celtic are starting to motor and Accies have taken only one point from the teams' last 14 meetings.

But they can score a consolation and Both Teams To Score And Either Team To Win is 8/5 with thepools.com .

We also like Celtic to win and Over 2.5 goals at 8/15.

First scorer? Celtic's last seven goals have all come from seven different scorers - although two of them were own goals.

But James Forrest has delivered for us several times this season and he is 9/2 to score first.
