ℹ️ Team News: Motherwell
It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just a single fitness concern for the Motherwell gaffer Stuart Kettlewell to be concerned with from an otherwise complete group. Jake Carroll (Knee Surgery) misses out.
We think that The Steelmen should employ a 3-4-1-2 system for the game, handing starts to Liam Kelly, Paul McGinn, Calum Butcher, Dan Casey, Stephen O'Donnell, James Furlong, Harry Paton, Sean Goss, Blair Spittal, Mikael Mandron and Kevin van Veen.
📰 Team News: Ross County
Ross County boss Malky Mackay has to currently contend with reduced team options. Ross Callachan (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Ben Paton (Cruciate Ligament Injury) are those who can’t be considered.
We are inclined to think that The Staggies seem likely to play in a 3-4-1-2 system using Ross Laidlaw, Keith Watson, Jack Baldwin, Alex Iacovitti, Connor Randall, George Harmon, Nohan Kenneh, Viktor Loturi, Yan Dhanda, Jordan White and Alex Samuel.
We feel that Ross County are capable enough to find the net against this Motherwell outfit, however it isn’t expected to be enough to prevent defeat.
We reckon that it will be a 2-1 advantage for Motherwell at full-time. Should be a good one.
