    Previewing Motherwell v St Mirren

    Previewing Motherwell v St Mirren

    Motherwell host St Mirren in the Ladbrokes Premiership on Saturday.

    Here’s the game previewed.

    What’s at stake

    Motherwell are in the race for seventh spot against St Johnstone and Livingston. The Saints sit a point ahead of the Steelmen, with Livingston four points further back.

    St Mirren know a win can ensure they can’t finish bottom of the league. They are also chasing down Hamilton as they want to get away from the play-off spot, with Accies currently two points ahead of them.

    The form guide

    Motherwell have won two, drawn one and lost two of their last five matches. Wins over Dundee and St Johnstone at home have come with an away draw at Hamilton, and defeats to Aberdeen and Rangers.

    St Mirren have the marginally better record – winning two, drawing two and losing one of their last five.

    Team news

    Trevor Carson, Craig Tanner, Ross McCormack and Christian Mbulu remain sidelined. Liam Donnelly is a doubt due to illness. Alex Rodriguez Gorrín is suspended.

    In Numbers: Preparing for St Mirren

    St Mirren are the visitors to Fir Park on Saturday, as both sides chase their respective end-of-season goals.

    Here’s the game previewed in numbers.

    Six

    The number of goals scored between the two teams in the three encounters so far this season.

    Motherwell have scored four, picking up 2-0 and 2-1 wins away in Paisley this campaign. St Mirren’s other goal came in a 1-0 win at Fir Park in December.

    There have also been six different scorers – David Turnbull, Chris Cadden, Simeon Jackson, Jake Hastie, Paul McGinn and Allan Campbell.

    Eight

    Motherwell have played eight home matches in 2019, winning six.

    Victories came against Hibernian, Livingston, Hearts, Hamitlon Academical, St Johnstone and Dundee. Defeats came against Ross County and Rangers.

    22

    There’s a 22-point gap between the two teams going into the weekend’s match.

    Motherwell currently have 47, as they chase down a 48-point tally amassed last campaign.

    St Mirren are seven points ahead of bottom spot, knowing a win will guarantee safety from bottom spot.

    Setting the scene on St Mirren

    Setting the scene on St Mirren

    Motherwell host their penultimate home game of the season on Saturday, as St Mirren visit Fir Park.

    Here’s an early look ahead to the match.

    What’s at stake

    Motherwell remain in a three-way fight for seventh place with St Johnstone and Livingston. The Perth Saints are one point ahead as things stand, with Livi four points behind.

    St Mirren know a win will guarantee they can not finish bottom of the Ladbrokes Premiership, although Dundee’s result can also dictate that regardless of what Oran Kearney’s men do in ML1.

    Tale of the tape

    Motherwell have won two, drawn one and lost two of their last five. Wins over Dundee and St Johnstone have come with defeats to Aberdeen and Rangers, and a draw at Hamilton.

    St Mirren have won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five. Wins over Dundee and Livingston have been paired with draws with St Johnstone and Hamillton, and a loss to Celtic.

    Head to head

    Motherwell have won twice away to St Mirren this campaign, but the Buddies picked up all three points in their last trip to Fir Park.

    A goal from Simeon Jackson won it for the Buddies.

    Jake Carroll next to sign for Motherwell

    Jake Carroll next to sign for Motherwell

    Motherwell Football Club have secured the services of defender Jake Carroll for the next two seasons.

    The Irish left-back will join from Cambridge United in the summer, adding further competition to the backline.

    Carroll, 27, will officially move to Fir Park in June when his contract with United expires.

    “Jake has great attributes which will bring a lot to the squad,” manager Stephen Robinson said of the signing.

    “He’s quick and he’s a strong defender. But he will come here and have to earn the right to play, as we’ve got competition in his position.

    “We’re making a lot of early progress in getting players signed, with Jake joining Declan Gallagher and Liam Polworth in committing early.

    “We’re continuing to push to get our business done early, both with players we’ve offered contracts to and with others we have identified.”

    Carroll started his professional career with St Patrick’s Athletic in 2011, spending two seasons with the League of Ireland and picking up experience in UEFA Europa League qualifying games against Karpaty Lviv and Hannover 96.

    A six-figure move to Huddersfield Town followed, where he also spent time out on loan at Bury and briefly in the Scottish Premiership with Partick Thistle, making 13 appearances.

    He then moved on to League Two side Hartlepool United, where he played alongside Trevor Carson and made 73 appearances across two seasons, before switching to Cambridge United in January 2017, where he has played 94 times.

    “I’m looking forward to getting started in the summer with the club,” Carroll said.

    “I know there’s a lot of competition for places, but I’m coming to be part of the squad and looking to establish myself.”
