Motherwell vs Hamilton
2018/19 Scottish Premiership
Date: Saturday, 11th August 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Fir Park (Motherwell).

Fir Park will be filled with spectators when Mother well plays host to Hamilton on Saturday. Both teams will be aiming for their first win of the season having failed last week.

Motherwell had a successful season last term and have started this season with higher hopes. They came out top of the League Up group leading by 4 points and didn’t lose a single game.

However, Motherwell failed to progress in the Europa League as they lost 3-0 to red-hot Hibs team. The team will be hoping to gel at home this time and give the fans something to cheer about.

Hamilton are already having a difficult campaign this term just like their last season. They barely finished above relegation last term and we’re eliminated early in both Cup competitions.

They were unimpressive last week against Hearts losing 4-1 at home having just 1 shot on target in 90 minutes.

Meanwhile they allowed 20 shots in that game while 10 of those shots hit the target.

Hamilton’s pre-season was very poor, having won just 2 games against Stenhousemuir and Berwick Rangers.

They need to start getting results to avoid having another blunder of a season this term.
