Motherwell travel to Aberdeen on Wednesday night, knowing a win is required to keep in contention for a place in the top six.
Here’s an early look ahead to the match.
The top six permutations
A win is absolutely essential for Motherwell to keep up hopes of a late surge into the top six. Hibernian must also lose at home to Kilmarnock on the same night for the Steelmen to take the matter to the final day of the regular season.
Tale of the tape
Aberdeen have had topsy-turvy form in their last 10 matches. The Dons have recorded three wins, four draws and three defeats in that time.
Their home league form has also seen Derek McInnes’ side go without a Ladbrokes Premiership victory at Pittodrie in seven matches. Six games since 22 December have seen them draw three and lose three.
Motherwell’s win over St Johnstone on Saturday made it seven wins from their last 10 games. There has only been two defeat in that spell – losses at Celtic and Hibernian.
Head to head
Motherwell matches with Aberdeen are never predictable.
This season has seen both teams win on home turf. Aberdeen won 1-0 earlier in the campaign, before a resounding 3-0 victory for the Steelmen at Fir Park.
Motherwell won their second-last visit to the north east, with Louis Moult’s double in November 2017 getting all three points.
