    Motherwell held by Hibernian

    A lack of cutting edge ultimately cost Motherwell as they were held at home by Hibernian.

    Stephen Robinson’s side had a host of chances in both halves but couldn’t make their attacking prowess pay, as they reduced the visitors to limited opportunities.

    Motherwell made two changes from the team which won at Aberdeen on Wednesday night. Christopher Long was forced out through injury and replaced by Ross MacIver, with Mark O’Hara dropping to the bench with Christian Ilic coming in.

    Almost immediately the chances started to flow. James Scott, causing all sorts of trouble for Tom James down the left, cut inside and flashed a shot wide of goal early on.

    Jake Carroll saw a free-kick from close range beaten away by Ofir Marciano, Allan Campbell set a shot wide from inside the area and Liam Polworth sent a shot narrowly over the crossbar from distance as Motherwell peppered the visitors’ goal.

    Hibs looked threatening on the counter, but goalkeeper Mark Gillespie was rarely troubled in the first half.

    Motherwell set out in similar fashion in the second period but it was Jack Ross’ side who had the biggest chance of the opening stages.

    After Gillespie beat away an initial shot, Florian Kamberi found himself in at the back post from a cross from the right. His steer back across goal hit the inside of the right post and bounced back, with Declan Gallagher just on hand to knock the ball behind.

    Motherwell changed up the entire frontline across the second half to try and carve out more chances, but found Hibs standing firm.

    The biggest chance fell to substitute Christy Manzinga. Getting the ball out of his feet as he flew towards goal, his left-footed shot was netbound all the way but Marciano got the slightest of fingertip touches to turn it onto the crossbar.

    Opposition report: Hibernian

    Opposition report: Hibernian

    Hibernian are the first visitors to Fir Park in 2020, as they come calling in the Ladbrokes Premiership on Saturday.

    Here’s a look at our opponents.

    The story so far

    Since Jack Ross’ arrival in mid-November, Hibernian have kicked on in their pursuit of a top six finish.

    Victory over Motherwell at Easter Road in the manager’s first game in charge kicked off a run of four wins, one draw and three defeats in the league.

    Sitting sixth and with a five-point advantage over Kilmarnock in seventh, the next few games will go a long way to determining whether they’ll be in the top half come the split.

    Form guide

    Hibs have won one and drawn one since returning from the winter break, with a 2-1 comeback win over Hamilton Academical in the league in midweek following a 2-2 draw at Dundee United in the Scottish Cup.

    Before the break, Ross’ side won two and lost three, beating Aberdeen and Hearts but losing to Celtic, Rangers and Livingston.

    On their travels this campaign, Hibs have won three, drawn two and lost six, including a 3-0 loss at Motherwell in August.

    Three to watch

    Martin Boyle

    Having had to watch on from the sidelines as Hibernian suffered a poor beginning to season, Martin Boyle certainly has made up for lost time since returning from his second serious knee injury of 2019.

    Boyle was named the Scottish Premiership Player of the Month for December after a superb month for the 26-year-old, where he scored doubles in victories over Aberdeen and Hearts.

    The Australia international will be hoping for much better fortunes in 2020, having undergone knee surgery twice last year.

    Scott Allan

    Hibs boss Jack Ross has pledged to improve the less glamorous side of Scott Allan’s game, which should come as a warning shot to the rest of the sides in the Scottish Premiership.

    Allan has demonstrated his abilities in delivering a killer pass and also in finding the net with seven goals to his name this season, but Ross is still looking for more.

    He lavished praise on the 28-year-old after he contributed assists for both of Martin Boyle’s goals in the 2-0 derby success at Tynecastle, a performance he felt showed his willingness to improve all aspects of his game.

    Stephane Omeonga

    Belgian midfielder Stephane Omeonga sealed a surprise return to Easter Road last week and straight away set his sights on recapturing the form that helped him establish himself as a firm favourite among the Hibees faithful.

    Omeonga, who featured for Belgium in the Under 21 World Cup in 2019, played 17 times for Hibs last season and his box-to-box style won over the fans.

    The 23-year-old spent the first half of the season on loan at Cercle Brugge from his parent club Genoa. He made his return to action for the Hibees as a second half substitute in the 2-1 midweek win over Hamilton.
