Ross County are the opponents on Wednesday night, as Motherwell return to action after an eight-day break.
Here’s a look at the Staggies.
The story so far
Promoted back to the Premiership at the first time of asking in 2018/19, the northern side have set about re-establishing their top flight credentials.
Sitting ninth through 28 games, they find themselves in with an outside chance of a top six finish, sitting eight points off Hibernian with 15 left to play for.
Looking over their shoulder, play-off placed Hamilton are eight points behind, with bottom club Hearts two points further back.
Since losing to Motherwell 2-1 on Boxing Day at home, the Staggies have won two, drawn three and lost five.
On their travels, a 2-1 win at Pittodrie last time out ended a run of 12 games without a victory away.
Three to watch
Attacking midfielder Josh Mullin hit double figures for assists and goals as Ross County took their place back in the top flight and he’s carried on his rich vein of form into life in the Premiership.
Mullin has been involved in 21% of the Staggies’ league goals so far this season – contributing five assists and one goal.
The former Livingston and Albion Rovers man has recently spoken of the great team spirit within the camp at County, pointing to the fighting qualities shown as they battled back to earn a share of the spoils against St Johnstone and in the 2-1 triumph against Aberdeen.
The goals of Billy McKay have been pivotal in moving Ross County towards achieving their target of Scottish Premiership safety.
A double in the victory over Aberdeen, the equaliser in the 1-1 draw with St Johnstone and both goals in the 2-0 home success against Livingston means that the 31-year-old has moved the Northern Irishman on to eleven goals in all competitions this season.
McKay has made a habit of producing the goods in front of goal throughout his career and finished the last decade as the fourth top scorer in the Premiership – hitting the net 75 times.
One of three former ‘Well players among the ranks at County, Lee Erwin will be looking to make an impact when he comes up against the Steelmen this evening.
After enjoying an encouraging debut season in the Motherwell first team in which he scored six league goals including the opener in the 3-1 Scottish Premiership play-off first leg victory over Rangers at Ibrox, Erwin would make the move to Leeds United.
In truth his career somewhat stalled after heading down south, though he has shown glimpses of the potential he showed during his time at Fir Park in a one-year spell at Kimarnock and then during his time in the Highlands with the Staggies.
