Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Following back-to-back draws with Hibernian and St Johnstone, Motherwell will look to return to winning ways in the Premiership when they take on Kilmarnock on Matchday 24. The Well aim to move closer to the Championship Group berth and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach against the Killie. Both Jonathan Obika and Callum Slattery are sidelined with injuries, while Dan Casey faces race against the clock to be fit for Saturday’s encounter.
The visitors, on the other hand, are eager to put an end to their three-match winless run in the Scottish top flight. As the visitors will go for a win in this game as well, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. As for the away team, defender Corrie Ndaba is banned for the match, while Kyle Magennis continues to miss out with a hamstring problem.
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.
