Off the back of European qualification, big things were expected of Motherwell this season, but their campaign has been completely underwhelming.

Their currently winless run in the Scottish Premiership stands at nine games, although with four draws being posted during that time.

With just one victory in 13 matches, Steven Hammell’s side are only saved from sitting in the bottom three by possessing a superior goal difference to the teams below them.

A 1-1 draw with 11th-placed Ross County was followed by a 1-0 defeat at St Mirren at the weekend, the Steelmen falling to a 16th-minute goal.

While Motherwell now have six matches in front of them without having to face Celtic or Rangers, they are aware that they must take advantage if they are to avoid a relegation battle.

Although they sit four points ahead of their upcoming opponents, St Johnstone have put together a worse run of form in comparison to their hosts.

Callum Davidson has witnessed his side lose seven successive games, six of which have come in the top flight, and it has left St Johnstone six points adrift of the top six.

On a slightly positive note, St Johnstone only lost 1-0 and 2-0 in their last two matches, both coming against Rangers in the Scottish Cup and league.

With Celtic to follow on Sunday, Davidson is aware that defeat in this contes would leave his side at risk of being pulled into the bottom two by the end of the week.

Motherwell vs. St Johnstone Head to head

In the 70 previous meetings between these two sides across all competitions, Motherwell have claimed 28 victories while St Johnstone have won 30, and they have drawn in 12. St Johnstone have scored 96 goals and conceded 102 in the process.

Motherwell Team News

Steve Hammell is unlikely to make major changes to his Motherwell XI, potentially sticking with the same side from the narrow defeat at St Mirren.

Oliver Crankshaw, Ross Tierney and Dean Cornelius are all in contention for recalls on the flank and central midfield respectively.

St Johnstone Team News

St Johnstone will be without Nicky Clark after the forward was sent off during the first half at Rangers, with Stevie May most likely to deputise down the middle of the attack.

Graham Carey could be restored to the midfield, with Melker Hallberg dropping into a deeper position.
