    Motherwell win at St Mirren

    Motherwell showed grit and character to grind out a fifth straight Ladbrokes Premiership victory at St Mirren.

    Jake Hastie and Allan Campbell goals in either half got the win for the men in claret, as they recovered from a potentially morale-sapping equaliser to roar up the park and grab the winner.

    Stephen Robinson elected to remain unchanged for the third successive match, with his substitute bench also remaining the same from the weekend win over Livingston.

    After scrappy opening exchanges, the game immediately exploded into life through Hastie.

    Challenging the full back Muzek, he cut inside from the right, beat another and then rocketed a left-footed effort into the top right corner of the net, via the crossbar, past a stunned goalkeeper.

    St Mirren, in truth, had the better chances in the first half thereafter. Nazon was denied a goal through an incredible point blank save from Gillespie, and substitute McAllister curled over shortly after.

    Motherwell’s first half was a succession of set plays which failed to create any further serious chances, while the hosts had plenty possession but mainly in their own half.

    St Mirren again enjoyed possession in the second period, but the best chances fell to the Steelmen.

    The second arguably should have came. A three versus two situation saw link up play between Campbell, Ariyibi and Hastie. The latter finally squared to Main for a tap in, but he just made his run too early and the ball was cleared.

    With 17 minutes left, the hosts were level. At the second bite after a corner, Dreyer got the ball into the area for Paul McGinn to loop a brilliant header over Gillespie.

    Motherwell’s heads could have went down, but they roared back to life shortly after to claim the winner. Elliott Frear’s outstanding cross from the left met the run of Campbell brilliantly, leaving the midfielder no option but to power an excellent header home to send the travelling crowd wild.

    In Numbers: Heading to St Mirren

    Motherwell head west to take on St Mirren on Wednesday night in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

    Here’s the game previewed in numbers.

    Five

    Motherwell head to Paisley looking to record their fifth straight league win.

    Having defeated Hamilton Academical, Hibernian, Dundee and Livingston, Stephen Robinson’s side are looking to string together their best run of results since a five-game winning run in 2016.

    Conversely, St Mirren have lost their last five games in the league.

    18

    Although only three league positions separate the two sides going into Wednesday’s match, Motherwell currently have an 18-point gap over their opponents.

    Sitting in bottom spot, St Mirren have won three, drawn three and lost 18. Motherwell meanwhile have won nine, drawn three and lost twelve.

    343

    Motherwell last conceded in the league 17 minutes into the win over Hamilton Academical, and have since racked up 343 minutes without letting one in.

    Mark Gillespie and his defence have stood tall against Hibernian, Dundee and Livingston, returning to the sort of form that saw the team rack up a record 20 clean sheets last campaign.

    Need to Know: A look at St Mirren

    Need to Know: A look at St Mirren

    St Mirren are our opponents in the Ladbrokes Premiership on Wednesday, 

    Here’s a look at the Buddies in detail.

    Plenty change

    Ten new faces have arrived in Paisley in the winter transfer window, with 13 heading out.

    At the back, manager Oran Kearney has added goalkeepers Václav Hladký and Jordan Holmes, from Slovan Liberec and Bournemouth respectively. They’ve been joined by defenders Mateo Mužek, Mihai Popescu and Laurențiu Corbu.

    Greg Tansey has arrived in midfield on loan from Aberdeen, along with fellow loanees Brad Lyons, Anders Dreyer and Kyle McAllister.

    Up top, Haitian striker Duckens Nazon has also arrived on loan from Belgians Sint-Truiden.

    Form guide

    St Mirren are without a league win in five, with their last Ladbrokes Premiership victory coming at Fir Park in December.

    St Johnstone, Kilmarnock, Celtic, Hibernian and Rangers have since defeated them, with an aggregate score of 14-2.

    Kearney’s men however did progress in the William Hill Scottish Cup, coming from two goals down to Alloa Athletic to progress 3-2.

    In the scrap

    St Mirren may be bottom of the table as things stand, but they are anything but cut adrift.

    With Dundee sitting two points ahead of them, and Hamilton Academical three, there is plenty scope for a string of results to pull them out of immediate danger.
