Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Tannadice Park will host Wednesday’s football game between Dundee United and Motherwell. The Terrors suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Kilmarnock and Ross County in the previous two league fixtures, but despite back-to-back defeats they managed to secure the Premiership survival. Dundee United have little to play for in the last two games of the season, but, no doubt, their pride is at stake. Both Powers and Siegrist are likely to miss the game through injuries.
The Well, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-0 win over Kilmarnock. The visitors have been in a fine form of late, and seeing that Dundee United are low on confidence following the Scottish Cup defeat to Hibernian, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting team. All Carson, Donnelly, Fox, Grimshaw, Nolan, Seedorf, and Smith are likely to miss the game through injuries.
Highlighted Player (Calum Butcher):
Calum Butcher is an English midfielder, who was born in Rochford on February 26, 1991. Butcher played for the youth teams of Ipswich Town, Southend United and Tottenham Hotspur and despite being a Spurs player he did not see any game action at senior level during his spell with the White Hart Lane outfit.
The 185-cm-tall midfielder, though, was named as a substitute for Spurs in a 1-1 draw with Shakhstar Donetsk in the UEFA cup back in 2009. Butcher played for the likes of Barnet (loan), Hjorring, Hayes & Yeading United, Dundee United and Burton Albion in the past before joining Millwall on August 25, 2016. He made his debut for the Lions two days after signing for the club, coming as a substitute in a 3-1 victory over Chesterfield.
Butcher scored his first goal for Milwall against Northampton on October 15, 2016. It has to be noted that the midfielder scored two goals in 32 appearances for the Lions in the 2016/2017 Championship campaign.
Highlighted Team (Motherwell):
Motherwell are professional football club that compete in the Scotland Premiership. The Steelmen play home games at Fir Park, the stadium which can hold up to 13,677 spectators, wearing amber and claret shirts.
White, on the other hand, is the dominant colour of the club’s away kit. Founded in 1886, Motherwell won their first domestic trophy in the 1931/32 season, leaving Scottish giants Rangers and Celtic behind them in the standings. Speaking of the Scottish Cup, the Steelmen have two titles in the cup competition. In the 1951/52 season, Motherwell defeated Dundee 4-0 in the Scottish Cup final, with the team repeating the success 39 years later as they outplayed Dundee United 4-3 in the title game.
The likes of Hamilton Academical and Airdrieonians are regarded as the club’s bitterest rivals. The games between these clubs are known as the Lanarkshire derby. Hughie Ferguson is leading the club’s all-time goal-scoring chart as he netted 284 goals for the Steelmen in league matches.
