It’s back to league action after the international break on Saturday, as St Johnstone visit Fir Park.
Let’s set the scene for the return to Ladbrokes Premiership action.
First encounter of the campaign
Motherwell and St Johnstone lock horns for the first time in the 2018/19 season on Saturday, with eight games of the campaign already passed.
The Saints sit three points above the Steelmen in the table, having gathered eight points compared to their opponents’ five.
Both teams have identical records in their last five matches. From four league games and one Betfred Cup match, both have lost four and drawn one.
Motherwell arrested a four-game run of defeats with a draw against Livingston in their last outing, with Ryan Bowman’s opener being cancelled out by a Keaghan Jacobs free kick.
St Johnstone started their last five matches with a home draw with Aberdeen, before going on to lose their last four. Two of those games have been against Celtic, including a 6-1 home loss in their last outing.
Head to head
The two teams came face-to-face with each other in the 2017/18 season, with St Johnstone having the upper hand.
Tommy Wright’s men won the first encounter of the campaign 4-1, although Motherwell finished the game with eight men on the pitch because of three red cards.
Motherwell won the next match when St Johnstone visited Fir Park, with Allan Campbell and Curtis Main netting in a 2-0 win.
A 0-0 draw at McDiarmid Park then followed, before the Saints sprung a surprise with a 5-1 win at Fir Park in May as Stephen Robinson’s men geared up for the Scottish Cup final.
