Reason For Motherwell vs St Mirren Predictions

  • Motherwell haven’t won a game since December at home, losing three and drawing once.
  • The hosts have failed to score in three of their last four games at Fir Park, conceding an average of two goals in those fixtures.
  • St Mirren have netted an average of a goal a game in their previous five matches on the road.

Steelmen searching for their next win

Motherwell come into this game on the back of a five-game winless run that was extended last week as they lost 2-1 to an in-form St Johnstone side. The hosts are now hoping to fix their shortcomings and book their place in the next round.

The North Lanarkshire side are also winless since December at home, losing three times and drawing once in their last four league games at Fir Park. Moreover, the Steelmen have  failed to score in three of those ties, netting just one goal against Lanarkshire rivals Hamilton, as well as conceding eight times in their last trio of games – an average of two goals.

Buddies winless in 2020

St Mirren have also struggled to find form in recent weeks, as the club have seen out three draws, as well as narrow defeats to Rangers and Livingston. But there is hope for the Paisley side in this competition, as they drew 1-1 with Motherwell in their first meeting at the start of the month.

The Buddies haven’t done any better on the road, where they’ve won just once and they currently hold the worst away record in the league. They’re also the joint-second lowest scorers, netting just nine times in their 13 away ties.

However, St Mirren have been relatively solid at the back, conceding only seven goals in their last five games, keeping a clean sheet twice.

Visitors to cause an upset

This game is an identical fixture to the one that was supposed to be played at the weekend, but it was called off due to the weather. Neither side is in particularly good form, especially Motherwell, who have lost three of their last four home games and drawn the other.

St Mirren will come into this game with a little more confidence than their hosts, as they’ve managed to pick up five points from their last four away fixtures in the league, only narrowly losing to Rangers, and see out a draw against the Steelmen in this competition, which is why we’re backing the Buddies to cause an upset and win here.

We’re also going to go for a narrow 1-0 to St Mirren, as Motherwell have only scored once in their last four games at Fir Park, while conceding an average of two goals. The visitors have netted an average of a goal a game in their last five away fixtures.
