Inverness CT vs Motherwell Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Inverness provided a huge boost to their survival hopes after a 2-0 win over Dundee at the Dens Park. Billy McKay came up with the opening goal after just two minutes, while Inverness doubled their advantage just eight minutes later through Alex Fisher. Both these goals were extremely crucial, as they helped Inverness to move within one point off the fifth spot in the relegation group. Motherwell achieved a safety following a 3-1 win over Kilmarnock. Carl McHugh’s first minute goal was cancelled out by Adam Frizzell. However, Motherwell came back in front through second-half goals from Lionel Ainsworth and Elliot Frear. 

Betting Tips and Predictions

Motherwell have managed three wins in the last four games against Inverness, but head-to-head record in the last six matches shows a more even contest with both teams managing three wins apiece. Motherwell make the trip to the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium with four wins in the last five visits. Yet, Inverness are best placed to achieve success in the final game of the 2016-17 SPL season. Inverness have a need for three points in order to avoid relegation, while Motherwell have achieved safety and are likely to look forward to the holidays. Inverness have lost only twice in the last eight home games. Hence, I would back the home team for a win.

Inverness forward Alex Fisher has been in decent form after scoring in back-to-back matches, and he has also scored four goals in his last five appearances for Inverness. Fisher scored a brace in the last meeting with Motherwell, and I would back him to score anytime.

Inverness win – 4/6

Alex Fisher to score anytime – 6/4

Inverness CT Preview

Two wins in the last three matches has put Inverness with the possibility of avoiding relegation by means of the play-off spot. The club are just one point behind Hamilton going into the final game of the season. Inverness are certainly assisted by the final game being at the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium rather than on the road. Inverness have suffered just two defeats in the last eight home games compared to six in the last nine away games. Alex Fisher has now become the joint top scorer with six goals, which is a tally also achieved by midfielder Greg Tansey.

Inverness CT Team News

Aaron Doran (knee) is the only injury worry for Inverness.

Motherwell Preview

Motherwell will be approaching the last game of the season without any pressure after having avoided relegation. The club’s sudden improvement in form over the last few weeks has been quite incredible, but the managerial change to bring in Steve Robinson has worked out very well for the club. Victories were always going to be the key for the club in the fight against relegation, and they have now managed three wins in the last five games. Louis Moult remains the top scorer for the club with 14 goals in 30 appearances.

Motherwell Team News

Jacob Blyth (knee) and Ross MacLean (shoulder) are the injury problems for Motherwell.
