Hearts are the visitors to Fir Park on Saturday as Ladbrokes Premiership action returns after the international break.
The Steelmen won both encounters between the pair in ML1 last season, running out 2-1 winners in both.
The league leaders travel to Motherwell
With four wins from four, Hearts come to town as the team clear at the top of the Ladbrokes Premiership.
Having scored 10 goals and conceded just two, the Jam Tarts have already put Hamilton, Kilmarnock, St Mirren and Celtic to the sword.
Fortress Fir Park
Stephen Robinson’s men won two from two at home against Craig Levein’s side in the 2017/18 campaign.
An early-season victory, with Jon Daly in temporary charge of the visitors, came courtesy of goals from Louis Moult and Ryan Bowman.
But the best was yet to come in the William Hill Scottish Cup quarter finals. With Kyle Lafferty having cancelled out Curtis Main’s opener, up stepped Carl McHugh with a rocket of an effort to win the match.
A few eyebrows were raised when Hearts forward Steven Naismith was given the nod up top for Scotland against Albania earlier in the week, coming into the team at the expense of Leigh Griffiths.
Any doubters were quickly silenced as the experienced man contributed to the first goal and netted the second in a big win for his country. He was joined in his performance by defender John Souttar, who looked assured and comfortable in only his second appearance for Scotland.
After a slow start to the league season, Motherwell have kicked on in their last few fixtures. A 3-3 draw with Rangers proved a huge lift, with Peter Hartley’s last-minute equaliser the least that was deserved.
A week later, a visit to Dens Park proved profitable. Goals from Danny Johnson, Gaël Bigirimana and Allan Campbell sealed the first three points of the season and continued an improved run of form.
