Motherwell vs Hibernian Preview

Motherwell defeated Greenock Morton in the cup at the weekend thanks to a late goal from Liam Donnelly.

Prior to that, however, Motherwell lost, 3-1, to Ross County in the league. Manager, Graham Alexander, was bitterly disappointed with the manner of the defeat in post-match interviews, lambasting his defense which has now conceded 30 goals in the SPL already this season.

Interesting to note that Motherwell have shipped more goals than any other team in the top half of the SPL. However, the defense will have a chance to improve that metric against a Hibs side that that’s known to be less than proficient in front of goal, having scored fewer times than any other team in the SPL top six this season to date (24).

Like Motherwell, Hibernian made it through to the 5th-Round of the Scottish Cup last weekend at lowly Cove Rovers expense. Kevin Nisbet scored the only goal of a drab game vs deep in extra time.

In the league, Hibernian lost to first-placed Celtic last time out but, prior to that, had gone four successive games unbeaten, inching their way back up towards tonight’s opponent, Motherwell, in the table.

Another victory tonight for Shaun Maloney’s men will see Hibs leapfrog Motherwell into fourth place.

But, it should be noted, these teams battled out a closely-fought 1-1 draw last time out. So, expect a close one.
