Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Motherwell and Hibernian face each other at Fir Park in what is expected to be an interesting Premiership game. The Well continue with their old habit of producing fine displays at home, while struggling on the travels, and they are surely capable of matching the Hibs in front of home fans. Both Ricki Lamie and Mark O’Hara are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Hibernian, on the other hand, defeated lower-league side Cover Rangers after extra-time, with the team booking their place in the Scottish Cup last 32. Kyle Magennis remains in the recovery room, but he should be the only absentee in the away team. Anyhow, a close encounter is on the cards at Fir Park as Motherwell are tough to beat at home. In their last meeting in the Scottish top flight the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
Highlighted Player (Liam Kelly):
Born in Newport Pagnell, England Liam Kelly is a right-footed midfielder who plays for Coventry City in the League One. Kelly is a product of Milton Keynes Dons football school, but he did not play for the club at senior level. The English footballer started his senior career at Scottish club Kilmarnock, but after making 100 appearances in the league for the Killie, he moved to England, signing a three-and-a-half-year deal with Bristol City.
The English footballer played for the likes of Oldaham Athletic and Leyton Orient as well before joining Coventry City in the summer of 2017. His main position is central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both defensive and right midfielder as well.
His preferred foot is right. He made his league debut with Coventry City on August 5, 2017 in a 3-0 win over Notts County, while scoring his first goal for the club in a 3-1 win over Stevenage in April, 2018.
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.
