Motherwell vs St Johnstone Match Analysis and Prediction

Both Motherwell and St Johnstone will be seeking a return to winning ways when they lock horn in an crucial Premiership match at the Fir Park on Saturday evening with kickoff at 18:00.

Motherwell failed to return to winning ways when they faced Celtic at away last Sunday, where they lost by a narrow 1-0 , with Tom Rogic netting the only goal right on the 45th minute to condemn Graham Alexander’s side to their second winless game as they were coming of 1-1 draw against Hibernian.

The run has put Motherwell in a tricky situation as they currently sit in the fifth on 25 points, with one point above the sixth-placed Aberdeen and two above the seventh-placed Hibs. This means that the hosts could drop into the bottom half if they don’t post positive result again on the weekend.

However, Motherwell have been strong in front of their fans this season  with the club losing only three of their home matches but will also be aware that the Saints have been good on the road.

St Johnstone have been poor this season with the club only recording three wins from their 17 matches, while drawing five and losing nine in the process. This run has mostly been because of their lack of scoring goals. The Saints have been poor in front of goal this season and have failed to even score a goal in the previous three games and are the only squad to have not hit the double digits so far in this campaign.

Callum Davidson’s side currently sits at the bottom of the league with 14 points on the board in their name. they head into the match in a poor form as they have not won in their last six matches and are coming off a four match losing streak including the 2-0 defeat to Rangers in the midweek fixture.

However, with Dundee sitting just two points above the Saints outside the relegation zone, Callum Davidson will be pushing his side for a victory as three points in this match will see them climb out of the drop zone, adding more pressure to the match.
