Tip Reasoning

  • Motherwell are unbeaten in six of their nine home league games.
  • Motherwell scored first in eight of their nine home league games.
  • St Johnstone scored just once across their last five league games.
  • St Johnstone are the only Scottish Premiership side without a point in five rounds.

Motherwell to maintain top-half status

In this final game before Christmas, Motherwell must avoid defeat if they are to ensure that they can enjoy the big day as a top-half side. Encouragingly, they couldn’t have asked for a better fixture than being at home to rock-bottom St Johnstone.

The hosts are often quickly away here at Fir Park as evidenced by their return of eight match openers this term. Interestingly, Motherwell failed to win three of their eight home league games when taking a lead, though they shouldn’t worry about dropping a lead against a side without a goal in four of their last five games.

Ponderous St Johnstone to flop again

Even though St Johnstone manager Callum Davidson is unbeaten in four of his five personal meetings with Motherwell (W2, D2, L1), a loss of players due to COVID has not helped his cause as St Johnstone are in freefall (L5).

Since winning the opening game in October, St Johnstone ran out as winners in just one game since (W1, D2, L7) while failing to find the net in seven of those ten fixtures. With the aggravating factors mounting up, it is hard to see a great resurgence here.

Overall, I predict a reasonably straight forward home victory, at a value price to boot. As for the correct score prediction, I am going for a 2-0 Motherwell win as the visitors flop to an eighth defeat to nil in this league campaign.
