Motherwell vs St. Mirren Prediction

St. Mirren is the team in the league with the worst away record. They have not yet recorded a single win from eight away matches so far. In terms of goalscoring too, St. Mirren has the weakest away stats. They have conceded 21 goals away from home, at a rate of more than 2.5 conceded goals per game. Motherwell, who has won four of the last five h2h matches against St. Mirren, with added home advantage, will easily score in the first half.

No other team in the league has lost more first halves than St. Mirren. They have a tendency to go on the backfoot right from the beginning of away games. Motherwell will likely target this weakness and try to get on the scoresheet early.
