Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Easter Road will host Saturday’s Premiership game between Hibernian and Motherwell, the two teams who were beaten by Celtic and Rangers in the last two league matches. The Hibs suffered a dip in form, but they are still seen as favourites to beat the Well on home soil. Thody Elie Youan serves a one-game ban, while all Kyle Magennis, Joe Newell, Aiden McGeady, Rocky Bushiri, and Martin Boyle remain in the recovery room.
Meanwhile, the visitors experienced all sorts of problems at the back in their last league match, and seeing that midfielder Callum Slattery is banned for the match, we are tempted to put our money on the home team. Uganda international Bevis Mugabi is pushing for a recall to the starting XI after scoring as a substitute against Rangers, whereas both Joseph Efford and Nathan McGinley should miss out with injuries.
Highlighted Player (Josh Morris):
Josh Morris is a product of Blackburn Rovers football school who plays for Fleetwood Town in the League One. Morris’ main position is left midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both left-back and central midfielder as well.
The English footballer started his senior career at Blackburn Rovers and he played for the likes of Yeovil Town, Rotherham United, Carlisle United and Fleetwood Town on loan before moving to Bradford City in the summer of 2015. Josh Morris, though, found his best form at Scunthorpe United, scoring 35 goals in 107 appearances for the club in the league.
Before the start of the 2018/2019 League One season Morris re-joined Fleetwood Town, signing a two-year contract with the Fishermen. Josh Morris scored his first goal of the season in a 3-1 win over Peterborough United at Weston Homes Stadium. His contract with Fleetwood Town should expire on June 30, 2021.
Highlighted Team (Hibernian):
Founded in August 1875, Hibernian are the Scottish Premier League team that play home matches at Easter Road. The capacity of the venue is 20,421, and it was opened in 1893. The Hibs wear light green shirts with white sleeves and white shorts in home matches, while light grey is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Hibernian clinched their first Scottish league trophy back in the 1902/03 season, and they were the dominant force in Scottish football in the early 50s, securing three titles more from 1948 to 1952. The Easter Road outfit recorded their biggest win on September 3, 1881, with the team rolling over Black Watch Highlanders 22-1.
In February 1961, the Hibs suffered the biggest defeat in the club's history as they were beaten by Airdrie 11-1. Hibernian and Hearts face each other in the Edinburgh derby. The rivalry between the two clubs is considered one of the oldest rivalries in world football.
