Neither of these sides can look to recent form as an inspiration with just two wins in the last ten games between them.
It’s little wonder that Accies and Caley Thistle find themselves at the wrong foot of the table each on twenty-two points. But that is only one point behind a top six place so both sides have good reason to believe they can turn their seasons around.
There is a difference in trajectory between the clubs with Inverness slowly climbing the table one place at a time. Hamilton are dropping much faster and now find themselves behind the highlanders on goal difference.
That comes from a high of third place but their hopes faded with just one win in their last ten games. That came against bottom club Dundee Utd and even Accies fans would conceded that it was somewhat fortunate.
John Hughes’ Inverness have been struggling to win games emphasised by them blowing a 0-2 lead at Aberdeen last weekend. But they have been stern opposition on the road with just three defeats in eleven away matches this season.
Victories at Ross County, Motherwell and Livingston should give them enough confidence to see this game as winnable. Particularly with Martin Canning’s Hamilton side failing to win their last six games at home.
Saturday’s defeat to a depleted Kilmarnock will have been the most disappointing of them all. Another defeat to another team around them could see them drop into the relegation playoff place by tomorrow night.

Goals would have been the way to go with this game but with the BBC Weather page reporting 40 MPH+ winds at kick off that would be foolhardy.
Instead I am looking at the away side who have an excellent record at New Douglas Park. They have won on their last four visits with three of those wins covering a handicap.
You can back Inverness at 3.4 (12/5) with Betfair but I prefer to look at Draw No Bet stake back insurance. That is available by backing Inverness +0.0 Asian Handicap with McBookie at a price of 2.4 (7/5).
