    Previewing Motherwell v St Johnstone

    Motherwell host St Johnstone in the Ladbrokes Premiership on Saturday, 30 March, with both teams going all out for a win to keep them in the top six reckoning.

    Here’s the match previewed.

    Chasing the top six

    Both teams go into Saturday’s game looking to get the win that could keep them in touch with a top six spot.

    St Johnstone are six points off Hearts, while Motherwell are a point further behind with three games to play.

    St Johnstone ended a run of eight defeats and one draw when they beat St Mirren 1-0 on Wednesday night.

    Need to Know: A look at the Saints

    Need to Know: A look at the Saints

    St Johnstone head to Fir Park on Saturday looking to put paid to Motherwell’s top six ambitions, and push on themselves to catch Hibs.

    Here’s a look at our weekend opponents.

    Winless run arrested

    Wednesday night’s 1-0 win over St Mirren ended the Perth Saints’ run of nine games without a victory.

    Tommy Wright’s men had racked up eight defeats and one draw at Ibrox along the way, before Chris Kane’s goal got them back on track.

    In the top six hunt

    That win over St Mirren lifted St Johnstone one point above Motherwell in the league table, and within four of sixth-placed Hibernian with three games to go.

    Both team on Saturday are looking for three points to keep them in with a chance of catching the Edinburgh club, and making a late burst into the top half of the table.

    Top six stalwarts

    The 2017/18 campaign was the first since 2010/11 where St Johnstone weren’t in the top six of the Ladbrokes Premiership after the split.

    An eighth placed finish ended a run of three consecutive fourth-placed finishes, having also finished sixth twice and also in third spot.

    In Numbers: Preparing for St Johnstone

    Motherwell host St Johnstone on Saturday, with both teams slugging it out to catch Hibernian for place in the Ladbrokes Premiership’s top six.

    Here’s the game previewed in numbers.

    Six

    It’s a battle to be in the running for sixth spot on Saturday, as both teams try and chase down Hibernian with games running out.

    Motherwell currently sit on 40 points, five behind the Edinburgh club with three matches to play. St Johnstone, meanwhile, are on 41, after defeating St Mirren on Wednesday night.

    Nine

    St Johnstone ended a nine-game run without a victory in all competitions when they beat St Mirren 1-0.

    In that run they lost eight and drawn one, with their one positive result coming in a 0-0 draw at Rangers, before the home win over the Buddies.

    95

    Up to Saturday, Motherwell will have went 95 days without a home defeat in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

    Kilmarnock’s 1-0 win on Boxing Day was the last time the Steelmen went down at Fir Park on league business. Since then, Hibernian, Livingston, Hearts and Hamilton Academical have all been defeated.

    Setting the scene on St Johnstone

    Setting the scene on St Johnstone

    Motherwell host St Johnstone in the Ladbrokes Premiership on Saturday, with both teams still chasing down Hibernian for a place in the league’s top six come the split.

    Here’s an early look ahead to the match.

    Tale of the tape

    Both sides retain top six ambitions heading into the game on Saturday.

    St Johnstone’s Wednesday night win over St Mirren put them above Motherwell in seventh, just four points behind sixth-placed Hibernian with three fixtures to play.

    Motherwell currently sit five points behind Hibs, who travel to Livingston on Friday night. A win on Saturday for Stephen Robinson’s men could close the gap again as the race to the split nears its conclusion.

    Head to head

    Both teams have won on opposition territory in the two games so far this season.

    An October encounter at Fir Park saw the Saints score a last-gasp winner from a corner, with Jason Kerr’s goal sparking an eight-game unbeaten, which included six victories.

    Motherwell then ended that run in December, with Danny Johnson and Tom Aldred netting in a deserved 2-1 win at McDiarmid Park.

  • Reserves & Under 18s

    Reserves see off St Mirren

    The reserves made it back-to-back wins with a comfortable 4-1 victory over St Mirren.

    Liam Donnelly and the returning Chris Cadden were the notable inclusions in the ‘Well starting XI.

    Scotland international Cadden was playing his first Motherwell match for four and a half months, having been sidelined with a knee injury.

    The young Steelmen got off to the best possible start when David Devine opened the scoring after just 85 seconds.

    Jamie Semple’s near post corner was met perfectly from the big centre back, and his downward header across the goalkeeper found the back of the net.

    The visitors were dominating and added a second just 17 minutes later.

    Semple’s free-kick towards the penalty spot was only partially cleared and when it dropped for Cadden on the edge of the box, he unleashed an unstoppable volley past David Wilson and into the net.

    Motherwell continued to push for a third before the interval.

    Semple had a free-kick in a good area that sailed over the cross bar, Broque Watson brought about a smart save from Wilson with a low shot from inside the box and Donnelly fired over at the back post after good build-up play and cross from Adam Livingstone.

    The second half was a similar story to the first, with ‘Well dominating much of the proceedings.

    Watson had the first effort of the second half, connecting with a back-post header that was comfortable for Wilson to catch.

    Shaun Bowers was introduced on the hour, in place of Cadden, and he almost got amongst the goals himself, finishing off a superb passing manoeuvre, only to see his close range shot well stopped by the Buddies keeper.

    However, it was only a matter of time before a third goal arrived and when it did, it was a deserved one for the excellent Jamie Semple, who got himself on the scoresheet with a sweet low strike from the edge of the area.

    Akeal Rehman came close to a fourth shortly after, cutting inside on his left foot, but Wilson was on hand to turn his low shot around for a corner.

    ‘Well introduced two 16-year-olds from the bench, with Jack Brown replacing David Devine and Liam Motherwell making his first bow for the reserves, taking the place of Kyle MacDonald.

    The only blotch on the copybook for the visitors was a Saints goal five minutes from time. Matthew Grant forced the error inside the Motherwell box, before squaring it for the unmarked Josh Jack, with the sub having the simplest of tasks to tuck home.

    However, there was no danger of a comeback and just to make sure, Liam Donnelly added an exclamation point with a fourth on the stroke of full time. Semple had been brought down on the edge of the area, allowing the former Northern Ireland Under 21 captain to step up and curl home a stunning strike to make the points safe.

    Motherwell: Ferguson, Donnelly, Devine (Brown), Hussain, Livingstone, MacDonald (Motherwell), Cadden (Bowers), Watson, Rehman, Semple, Starrs

    Maguire on target for Scotland Under 21s

    Barry Maguire scored for Scotland’s Under 21 side on Monday, as they lost 2-1 to Sweden in a friendly.

    The Motherwell defender, making his second appearance for his country, tapped home from a first half free-kick to briefly equalise for Scot Gemmill’s team.

    Maguire started the match alongside Allan Campbell, with Jake Hastie and David Turnbull on the bench.

    Both substitutes got on the pitch, with Hastie coming on at half-time and Turnbull with 20 minutes to go.
