Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
After eliminating Ayr United in the last 16 of the FA Cup, St. Johnstone will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Motherwell in the Premiership. The Saints did well to beat Aberdeen 1-0 on the road in their last league match, meaning that they are brimming with confidence ahead of the midweek fixture. Callum Hendry, who found the net in the triumph over Ayr United, is pushing for a start.
The Well, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form. Following back-to-back losses to Livingston (0-1) and Celtic (0-4) in the national championship, the team played out a 1-1 draw with St. Mirren in the FA Cup at the weekend. Seeing that the visitors do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of the trip to Perth, we are tempted to put our money on the Saints this time out.
