Hearts will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 1-4 Scottish Cup victory against Airdrie United.

For Hearts, the goals were scored by Lawrence Shankland (11', 73'), Kenneth Vargas (18') and Calem Nieuwenhof (21'). Adam Frizzell (34') scored for Airdrie United.

Hearts haven’t had any problems with scoring, netting every time they’ve gone out to play in their last 6 games.

They have totted up the amount of 15 during that period while seeing the number of goals scored against them stand at 6.

Going into this contest, Hearts are unbeaten in their previous 4 home league matches.

In their previous game, Motherwell drew 3-3 in the Premiership match with Aberdeen.

In that match, Motherwell had 40% possession and 11 attempts on goal with 7 of them on target. For Motherwell, the scorers were Theo Bair (5', 22') and Adam Devine (26'). Aberdeen got 14 attempts at goal with 7 of them on target. Duk (31', 50') and Stefan Gartenmann (37') scored for Aberdeen.

The stats tell the story, and Motherwell have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, letting opponents get 8 goals in all. In defence, Motherwell just haven’t been too solid at all. We will find out if that trend will be continued on into this next match.

Their prior results show that Motherwell:

  • are undefeated in their last 4 away league matches.
  • haven’t won away from home in the past 10 league matches. What a terrible run of away results.

👥 Head to head

Looking at the statistics for their head to head meetings dating back to 11/05/2022, there has been little to separate the clubs with Hearts winning 3 of those games, Motherwell 3 and 0 being drawn after 90 minutes of play.

A sum of 17 goals were shared by the two clubs in this period, with 9 of them from The Jam Tarts and 8 netted by The Steelmen. That’s an average goals per game of 2.83.

The previous league game featuring these clubs was Premiership match day 13 on 11/11/2023 and the score finished Motherwell 1-2 Hearts.

In that game, Motherwell managed 40% possession and 8 shots on goal with 1 of them on target. Their only player to score was Blair Spittal (78').

At the other end, Hearts had 14 shots on goal with 3 on target. Lawrence Shankland (27', 71') was the scorer.

The match was refereed by David Munro.

🗞️ Team News: Hearts

There aren’t many personnel worries, with just the sole fitness concern for the Hearts gaffer Steven Naismith to contend with from a near full-strength group. Barrie McKay (Knee injury) is sidelined.

It looks as if The Jam Tarts should use the 4-2-3-1 system in the match, utilising Alexander Clark, Dexter Lembikisa, Frankie Kent, Stephen Kingsley, Alex Cochrane, Calem Nieuwenhof, Beni Baningime, Kenneth Vargas, Scott Fraser, Alan Forrest and Lawrence Shankland.

📋 Team News: Motherwell

Out of a mainly full-strength squad, there’s just the one fitness worry for the Motherwell manager Stuart Kettlewell to be concerned about. Callum Slattery (Knee injury) won’t be playing here.

There’s a good chance that The Steelmen seem most likely to play in a 3-4-2-1 formation, going with Liam Kelly, Calum Butcher, Paul McGinn, Bevis Mugabi, Adam Devine, Davor Zdravkovski, Harry Paton, Georgie Gent, Blair Spittal, Jack Vale and Theo Bair.

🧠 Prediction

In our view, Hearts should see a lot of the ball and convert quite a few goal-scoring opportunities.

In contrast, Motherwell will be up against it to score themselves but do we see them seeing enough of the ball to score, too.

We reckon that it will be a controlled 3-1 victory for Hearts at the end of this one.
