Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Kilmarnock will be looking to put an end to their five-game losing run in the Premiership when they host Motherwell at their Rugby Park. The Killie have been totally out of form of late, with the team dropping down the standings week by week. It has to be noted that the likes of Broadfoot, Findlay, and Waters are all sidelined with injuries. The Well, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Celtic.
Motherwell, though, defeated both Ross County and Dundee United before suffering the defeat at Celtic Park, and they are surely capable of making life difficult for the out-of-sorts Killie. Motherwell are more of a team than Kilmarnock, and we predict that they are going to pick up all three points from the postponed fixture. The likes of Carson, Donnelly, Dunne, Fox, Gallagher, Lawless, and McGinley are all out of contention with injuries.
