Preview: Hibernian v Motherwell

A second trip to the capital city in a matter of days lies in wait for Motherwell on Wednesday night, with Hibernian the opponents in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

The Steelmen go into the game unbeaten so far in 2018, having defeated Hamilton Academical and Ross County before the weekend draw at Hearts.

Manager Stephen Robinson says his side go in to the match brimming with confidence.

“We’ve won two out of three and got a brilliant draw away to Hearts, and deservedly so. So there’s a real good atmosphere and we have another tough game against Hibs.

But we go in to it confident. It leads us in to three home games in the league and offers us a chance to build on what we’ve already done.”

Defender Richard Tait believes Motherwell have rediscovered their winning mentality after a refreshing winter break.

The defender said that confidence is firmly back in the dressing room ahead of their second trip to Edinburgh in the space of five days.

Hibs are a very good team. They’ve got a lot of pace and players who can make things happen and I enjoy going there and playing against them.

“Getting a point in the last minute against Hearts is something we can take confidence from,” the 27-year-old said. “The boys kept going all the way until the end so I think we got what we deserved.

“The break did us some good. We went away and came back refreshed.

“I think playing Hamilton straight away not only allowed us to get back from that loss at the end of the year, but allowed us to get our winning mentality back.”

Elliot Frear, Ryan Bowman, George Newell and Ellis Plummer are all unavailable for Motherwell through injury. New signing Stephen Hendrie is expected to go straight into the squad, pending international clearance.
