Motherwell vs Hibernian Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Motherwell moved into the top three of the SPL after a 1-0 win over Dundee at the Dens Park. Coming on the back of an impressive win over Rangers in the League Cup, Motherwell took the lead in the fifth minute through Craig Tanner. It went on to provide a third consecutive victory for Motherwell. Hibernian ended a run of three winless games in all competitions by beating Hearts 1-0 at the Easter Road stadium. Once again, an early goal decided this match as Simon Murray came up with the only goal in the third minute. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats

Betting Tips and Predictions

Motherwell have been on a strong run of form in recent weeks and it is difficult to look past Steve Robinson’s men, despite Hibernian creating a lot of raised eyebrows with the surprise results at the start of the season. Hibernian have only managed four wins, but the true standout element is a record of just two defeats in 10 games. Motherwell have been able to register four wins in the last five games, but Hibernian have drawn three out of the last four of the matches. Lennon’s team are also unbeaten on the road. I would back a draw in this game. Hibernian have scored under 1.5 goals in three out of the last five away matches. Motherwell have conceded less than 1.5 goals in all of the home matches this season since the 2-1 loss against Rangers. I see value in backing Hibernian to score under 1.5 goals.

Draw – 12/5

Hibernian to score under 1.5 goals – 4/6

Motherwell Preview

Motherwell are keen to put behind the disappointing 2016-17 season behind them. The team has been able to come in with a strong run of results at the start of the season. The latest run of three consecutive victories coupled with other results being favourable has meant that Motherwell are now into the top three places. They are one point above Rangers and just four points behind Aberdeen. The club has also managed to reach the finals of the League Cup where they would face Celtic. Louis Moult is the top scorer for Motherwell after coming in with five goals in 10 appearances.

George Newell is the only player on the sidelines for Motherwell.

Hibernian Preview

The recent run of matches threatened to take confidence out of Hibernian after the excellent start to the season. Even though the club were up against the top two teams (Aberdeen and Celtic) from the 2016-17 SPL season, Hibernian would have still worried about the defeats and a draw in these three games across all competitions. The memory of those winless matches has been wiped out with a clean sheet and three points against Hearts during the midweek game. Hibernian remain in the top six as a result of this victory, and the club will continue to push to retain this position. Anthony Stokes remains the leading scorer for the club with four goals in nine games.

Hibernian Team News

Liam Fontaine (ankle) and Darren McGregor (knee) are the players available for Hibernian manager Neil Lennon.
