Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Fir Park will host Saturday’s Premiership game between Motherwell and Kilmarnock, the two teams who are level on points in the standings ahead of Matchday 3. The Well aim to build on a 2-1 win over Hibernian, but this clash will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side. Calum Butcher continues to miss out with a foot injury, but he should be the only absentee in the home team.
The Killie, on the other hand, are brimming with confidence following a historical 1-0 win over Celtic in the League Cup last 16, but beating Motherwell on the road is easier said than accomplished. Taking everything into account, we believe that both teams should be happy with one point from the match. There are no injury worries in the visiting team, except for Ben Chrisene, who has yet to recover from a knee injury.
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.
