Kilmarnock vs Motherwell
Date: Wednesday, 27 February 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Rugby Park (Kilmarnock).
Killie will be looking to arrest their current slump in form on Wednesday evening when bottom half Motherwell come to visit Rugby Park. Kilmarnock lost ground on the likes of Rangers and Aberdeen in the battle for the second place after a dreadful streak of results in recent weeks. They head into this winless in seven consecutive outings in all competitions.
Scoring goals was a big issue for the hosts recently. They failed to bag a single goal in last four matches. To be fair, they played Rangers twice and Celtic once in the process, but they continued such a horrendous attacking form in weekend’s 1-0 loss to Livingston.
Kilmarnock vs Motherwell: Head-to-head
The hosts will rely on the head to head tradition here given they won four on the spin against the Well.
Three of these four wins saw identical 1-0 scoreline, including this term’s victory away at Fir Park on Boxing Day.
Just one of past five head to head affairs saw three or more goals scored.
Kilmarnock vs Motherwell: Prediction
The visitors will thus definitely head unto the game as form favourites. This is in spite of a 4-1 loss they suffered on Sunday against defending champions Celtic away in Glasgow. The Well won five on the bounce beforehand.
Such streak brought them right on the brink of the top half. They have six rounds to overtake St. Johnstone and Hibernian in the battle for the top-six finish. The team led by Stephen Robinson currently have a two-point deficit in this battle.
Motherwell claimed two separate 2-1 wins against S. Mirren and Hearts before the mentioned loss at Celtic Park. They scored at least a goal in all of last eight games in all competitions. Nevertheless, taking the recent head to head trend into consideration, the Under 2.5 goals FT seems to be the best of betting options for this one. You can alternatively try with draw at the half time at the odds of 2.05.
