Motherwell vs St. Mirren Prediction
Steve Robinson’s men have propelled themselves to the top three in the Premiership and have admitted defeat just twice in their last seven games. The hosts bounced back from a narrow 2-1 defeat at home against Ross County by pulling off a 1-0 win over St Johnstone last week, that too on the road.
Their counterparts have not been as lucky, and are currently sporting a disappointing five-match winless run in the top flight, which has consigned to the bottom half of the ladder. It is certainly worth mentioning that the visitors have been showing no conviction whatsoever in the final third and are deservedly without a goal in their last two games in a running.
To make matters worse, the away side have secured the bragging rights just once in their last eight visits to this venue. Given that the hosts are also on a much more positive run of form at the moment, the three points are more than likely to swing in favor of Motherwell at the end of the ninety minutes.
Additionally, as previously mentioned, the guests are the worst offensive team in the cluster and have added just three measly goals to their tally so far. The hosts, on the other hand, have scored six goals from their last three home games alone and have drawn first blood in each of those clashes.
Taking into account that their last head to head matchup here also saw the home team open the scoring, by all means, count on the deadlock to be broken by Motherwell.
