    The games come thick and fast as Motherwell host Hibernian at Fir Park on Saturday.

    Kick-off in the Ladbrokes Premiership match is at 3pm.

    Tale of the tape

    It’s third versus sixth in the league, with 12 points separating the two sides.

    Motherwell have won seven of their last 10 matches and four of the last five, opening a four-point gap in third on Wednesday night with a 1-0 win at Aberdeen.

    Hibs came from behind to win 2-1 at home to Hamilton Academical on Wednesday, registering their second win in five games to go with a draw and two defeats.

    Head to head

    Both sides have won on home turf against the other in the 2019/20 season.

    Motherwell were 3-0 victors back in August at Fir Park, with Sherwin Seedorf, Liam Donnelly and Jermaine Hylton netting.

    At Easter Road in November, Hibernian came from behind to win 3-1 after Liam Polworth’s early goal was cancelled out by Christian Doidge, Florian Kamberi and Daryl Horgan.

    Motherwell claim win at Aberdeen

    Motherwell pulled four points clear in third spot with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Aberdeen.

    Liam Donnelly scored the decisive goal in first half stoppage time, heading in Liam Polworth’s precise free-kick delivery.

    Aberdeen threw everything at getting an equaliser in the second half, throwing five forwards on in a late salvo, but a dogged Motherwell display saw the visitors hold firm and take the points.

    Both sides had limited chances on goal in the first half, with Aberdeen enjoying more of the ball but less of the clear cut chances.

    Christopher Long was the first to seriously test the scoresheet, seeing his low shot from a tight angle on the right side beat Joe Lewis, but Shay Logan was alive to stab it away from potentially finding the net.

    At the other end, Andrew Considine had the hosts’ biggest chance. Logan’s cross from the right was flicked on by Cosgrove to the back post and into the stride of the left back. But he snatched at his shot, allowing Gillespie to stand tall and steer the ball away with his feet.

    Long was then forced off injured after being caught heavily on the edge of the box by Taylor. Referee Willie Collum ruled the ball had been won, but the striker had to go off to be replaced by Christian Ilic.

    The Croatian would sting the palms of Joe Lewis with a fierce effort from the edge of the area as the half looked to be wearing to a goalless close.

    But the opener would come in first half stoppage time. Polworth’s pinpoint delivery from a free-kick on the right hand side sailed over everyone and into the path of Donnelly at the back post.

    The Northern Irishman, recently back from injury, peeled away from everyone to head the ball into the ground and into the left corner of the net to send the travelling support wild and send his side in ahead at the break.

    The second half saw Motherwell trying to hit on the counter as Aberdeen threw everything at getting something out of the match.

    The hosts caused some concern with balls in from wide areas, but the hard work and determination from everyone in a Motherwell jersey saw the team hold firm and take all three points back down the road.

    Opposition report: Aberdeen

    Opposition report: Aberdeen

    Aberdeen play host to Motherwell on Wednesday night in the first Ladbrokes Premiership match of the new decade.

    Here’s a look at our opponents.

    The story so far

    Dumbarton were the Dons’ opening opponents on their return from a winter break trip to Dubai. After large spells of pressure, Derek McInnes’ side eventually ran out 1-0 winners thanks to Sam Cosgrove’s late penalty.

    Motherwell’s nearest challengers for third spot, Aberdeen sit a point behind in fourth spot as they look to avoid a repeat of failing to take the “best of the rest” spot on goal difference to Kilmarnock last campaign.

    Form guide

    With five wins, three draws and two defeats in their last 10 fixtures, Aberdeen are in steady form heading into Wednesday night’s fixture.

    A 1-1 draw with Hearts ended 2019, with Niall McGinn equalising in the capital in a 1-1 draw.

    Ominously, they’ve won four of their last five Premiership matches at Pittodrie, beating Kilmarnock, St Mirren, Hamilton and Livingston. A 2-2 draw with Rangers was the only break in the victorious run.

    Three to watch

    Andrew Considine

    It may have been almost 16 years since Andrew Considine made his Aberdeen debut. Five hundred appearances on and the defender continues to thrive at Pittodrie.

    His performances this season have led to suggestions that he may receive a Scotland call-up for the first time in his career and Considine himself has expressed that he feels he is getting better as he gets older.

    As well as contributing to keeping opposition attackers out, Considine continues to show an eye for goal too – netting three times in the league this season, the most recent of which earned the Dons a 2-2 draw against Rangers.

    Dylan McGeouch

    Derek McInnes finally secured the services of a player he’s admired for a long time when Dylan McGeouch put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half year deal with Aberdeen earlier this month.

    The midfielder played a big role in Hibs’ promotion back to the Scottish Premiership and Scottish Cup success in 2016, though it was his contributions during the 2017/18 campaign that really caught the eye. International recognition came at the end of that season as a result, as Scotland took on Peru and Mexico.

    McGeouch swapped Edinburgh for Sunderland in July 2018 but struggled to be a regular as the Black Cats endured a rollercoaster campaign, culminating in them narrowly missing out on promotion via the play-offs. Football was hard to come by for the 26-year-old this season down south and he will be hoping to quickly rediscover his form back on home soil as Aberdeen fight for third spot.

    Sam Cosgrove

    From a player who fans feared would never be able to break his scoring duck for the Dons to one of the most prolific in the country, as league football resumes in 2020, Sam Cosgrove’s stock is at an all-time high.

    Having racked up 21 goals already this season, Derek McInnes has expressed his desire to retain the services of the striker who has already found the net against ‘Well in 2019/20 – opening the scoring as the Dons eased to a 3-0 success at Fir Park earlier this season.

    Cosgrove has been linked to a number of clubs during January. But given he has contributed almost 37% of their league goals this season, it will surely take a sizeable bid for Aberdeen to part with a player who is almost unrecognisable from the one that had scored just once in 12 games for Carlisle United when they paid a nominal fee for his services in January 2018.
