Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Motherwell welcome Hearts to their Fir Park on day 13 of the new Premiership campaign. The Well are eager to put an end to their eight-game winless run and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Pape Souare continues to miss out with an ankle problem, while fellow defender Georgie Gent should be recalled to the starting XI after producing a fine display as a substitute in a 2-2 draw with St. Johnstone.
The Jambos, on the other hand, aim to recover from the League Cup defeat to Rangers, but seeing that Motherwell are desperate to put an end to their eight-game winless run in the national championship, home win should be considered. All Nathaniel Atkinson, Barrie McKay, Craig Halkett, and Craig Gordon are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the visiting team.
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.
