Team News: Motherwell
The Motherwell boss Graham Alexander will be grateful to have no fitness concerns at all coming into this match with a fully injury-free squad available for selection.
Team News: Aberdeen
Out of a mainly full-strength group, there’s only the lone fitness issue for the Aberdeen gaffer Stephen Glass to be concerned with. Michael Devlin (Ankle Surgery) won’t be in action.
Our thinking is that Aberdeen and Motherwell may well end up cancelling each other out here.
It could well end in a draw. We’re therefore predicting a tight encounter, finishing with a 1-1 score at the end of the match.
