Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Motherwell will be aiming to bounce back from a 3-0 loss to Hibernian when they take on St. Mirren at Fir Park on Matchday 17. The Well suffered a dip in form, with the team failing to win the previous four games in all competitions, but the match against St. Mirren could be the turning point for the home team. It has to be noted, though, that the likes of Carroll, Carson, Cole, Donnelly, Dunne, and Fox have been struggling with injuries of late.
The Saints, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom of the table. St. Mirren have collected only 12 points from possible 45, but their recent displays are giving fans a reason for optimism. The Saints are undefeated in the previous three league fixtures, and given Motherwell’s anything but good form, we are tempted to put our money on draw.
