Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Motherwell and Dundee United face each other at Fir Park in the opening match of day 16 of the new Premiership campaign. Motherwell sit in 5th place in the standings, just below 4th-place Dundee United, and they are eager to bounce back from a 3-0 loss to Dundee. Liam Grimshaw is pushing for a start, while all Crawford, Donnelly, O’Hara, and Ojala should miss out with injuries.
The Terrors head into the match following a 1-1 draw with Ross County. Dundee United have been showing signs of improvement of late, and they are surely capable of matching the Well at Fir Park. Both McNulty and Smith are injured for the visiting team, while Wales international Levitt is a major doubt. Anyhow, the share of spoils is on the horizon as the two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment.
