  • Hibernian have kept four consecutive clean sheets in their last four matches

Motherwell are on a wretched run

Motherwell come into this game on a terrible run of form. Graham Alexander’s side have won one of their last ten matches – their last two victories have come in this competition, in between which they have gone 10 without a win in the SPL. The loss of leading frontman Tony Watt, who joined Dundee United in January, has clearly had an impact on the side. Motherwell’s performances to date in this competition don’t inspire much confidence either – they scraped past Championship side Morton after extra time two rounds ago before downing Aberdeen 2-1 at home in the last 16, an Aberdeen side who have won twice on the road all season.

League meetings should give Hibs confidence  

Hibs, without setting the world alight, come into this one in reasonable form. Shaun Maloney’s side are unbeaten in their last five and have kept clean sheets in each of their last four outings. Hibs can take confidence from the league meetings with Motherwell so far this season – Hibs are unbeaten against Motherwell in their three games so far this campaign, two draws and a 3-2 Hibs victory at Fir Park on the opening day of the season. Hibs are fancied to make it four unbeaten against Motherwell on Sunday.

Shaun Maloney must be pleased with his sides recent defensive performances and should be hopeful his side can rediscover their attacking edge on Sunday. I expect Hibs to progress into the semi-finals and am happy to put them up as the main selection to win in 90 minutes. I think it’ll be a low scoring affair and as such the correct score prediction for this game will be a 1-0 away win.
