Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
The Simple Digital Arena will host Wednesday’s postponed fixture between St. Mirren and Motherwell. The Saints have drawn the previous three league fixtures, with the team sharing the spoils with Aberdeen, Hamilton and Livingston. St. Mirren are eager to retain their spot in top six, and they should take advantage of Motherwell’s current form. All Brophy, McGrath, and Quaner are sidelined with injuries, while Dennis is rated doubtful.
The Well head into the match following back-to-back defeats to Hamilton and St. Johnstone, and given the number of absentees in the away team, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. All Carson, Donnelly, Dunne, Fox, Gallagher, Grimshaw, and Lawless are all out of contention with injuries. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a 1-1 draw, but we predict that the out-of-sorts visitors are going to return home empty-handed.
Highlighted Player (Marcus Fraser):
Marcus Fraser is a Scottish footballer who plays for Ross County as a defender. Fraser is a product of Celtic football school, but he made no more than one appearance for the Hoops in the Scottish Premier League. He played his only game for the Scottish giants in a 3-1 win at Inverness on February 9, 2013.
After ending his loan spell with Cowdenbeath, Marcus Fraser signed a deal with Ross County in 2015. Over the years, the defender has established himself as a first-team regular with the Staggies, making 26 appearances in the Scottish top flight last term.
Speaking of his international career, Fraser has five caps for the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. His main position on the field is a right-back, but he is capable of producing good performances as a centre-back as well. Marcus Fraser was born in Bishopbriggs, Scotland, on June 23, 1994.
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.
