📏 Form Guide

Motherwell DDLWDL

Motherwell will be hoping to return to winning ways here following the 1-0 Premiership losing effort in their last game against Ross County.

In that match, Motherwell had 60% possession and 15 shots at goal with 1 of them on target. On the other side, Ross County had 9 shots at goal with 3 on target. Ross Stewart (24') was the scorer for Ross County.

It’s been a rare occasion in recent times where Motherwell have shown defensive steel. The facts show that The Steelmen have seen their defence breached in 5 of their previous 6 clashes, letting in 9 goals during that time. We shall soon see whether or not that trend will end up being sustained into this next match.

Coming into this clash, Motherwell haven't been beaten in the league by Dundee United in their previous 2 games.

Dundee United DWLDDD

Previously, Dundee United drew 1-1 in the Premiership tie with St Johnstone.

In that game, Dundee United had 61% possession and 15 shots on goal with 4 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Dundee United was Nicky Clark (6'). On the other side, St Johnstone had 10 attempts at goal with 4 on target. Liam Craig (55') was the scorer for St Johnstone.

The strike force from Dundee United have been starved of goals over their last 6 games, netting the unsatisfactory return of only 4. In those fixtures, The Tangerines have also seen the overall goal tally of opposing teams equal 5.

Ahead of this meeting, Dundee United have not won away from home in their last 3 league games.

↔️ Head to head

Checking out their prior head to head meetings stretching back to 07/11/2014, there has been little between the sides with Motherwell winning 3 of those games, Dundee United 3 and 0 being drawn in normal time.

📰 Team News: Motherwell

Nearly everyone is up for selection, with just a single fitness concern for the Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson to contend with thanks to an otherwise robust set of players. Jake Carroll (Achilles tendon rupture) misses out.

📰 Team News: Dundee United

With a completely injury-free squad to choose from, Dundee United boss Micky Mellon has no fitness concerns to report before this game.

✨ Prediction

In this game, Dundee United have the ability to put one past this Motherwell lineup, but it may not be as many as the goals that they could concede.

We think that it’s going to be a close game with a 2-1 win for Motherwell at the end of this one. Let’s see what happens here.
