    Manager looks ahead to Lanarkshire derby

    Stephen Robinson knows the importance of Saturday’s trip to New Douglas Park.

    The ‘Well boss has been hit with a host of injuries, but is determined to see his side put in a big performance in the Lanarkshire derby.

    “We go in to a derby match of this magnitude determined to come away with something,” he said. :There are no excuses.”

    Need to Know: Profiling Accies

    Motherwell face Hamilton in the second Lanarkshire Derby of the season, and the final fixture of 2018.

    The trip to New Douglas Park has added importance given the four point gap between the Steelmen in 9th and Accies in 10th.

    Here, we take a look at Saturday’s opposition.

    Reducing the gap

    The chance to reduce the deficit between themselves and Stephen Robinson’s Fir Parkers to just one point will be huge motivation for Hamilton.

    Equally, Motherwell could open the gap up to seven points with a win on Saturday.

    There’s a lot at stake for both clubs ahead of another eagerly anticipated derby clash.

    The search for a must-needed win

    A run of just one win in eight games has seen league strugglers St Mirren and Dundee gradually catch up with Hamilton, who have lost six of their last eight league matches.

    However, a 1-1 draw with Kilmarnock before Christmas is the sort of result that is capable of giving the hosts a boost before the derby.

    The chance to go in to the winter break on the back of a win will further add to the home side’s incentive.

    Form out the window?

    As the cliché goes, all form goes out the window on derby day.

    And with both sides heading in to Saturday’s match on the back of a poor run of form, the stage is set for one team to turn it around.

    It’s a big weekend in store for both sides, and an intriguing way to bring 2018 to a close.
