Ahead of their upcoming game at Fir Park, both Motherwell and Hearts find themselves separated by a solitary point in the league table. The hosts started the season with back-to-back defeats to Rangers and St Johnstone, but they tasted their first success of the season with a 2-0 home win over Ross County last weekend.
Hearts are set to play first four fixtures of their season away from home with construction going on at their stadium. They started the season with a 1-4 defeat at Celtic, and no one can really blame them for that result. They followed that defeat with a hard-fought 1-0 win at Kilmarnock and last weekend, they registered a goalless draw at Rangers. Hearts haven’t really put a foot wrong this season and they are a good bet for an away win on Saturday.
The visitors have kept clean sheets on their last two trips and we are expecting another solid defensive performance from them. The hosts also put an assured performance at the back in their win over Ross County and we are predicting a low-scoring game on Saturday.
Last season, both sides played each other three times, and Hearts won all of them whilst scoring three goals in each tie.
