Hibernian and Motherwell are separated by a single point and a single place in the table as they prepare to face each other at Easter Road on Saturday.
The hosts made an impressive start to life in the top tier with two consecutive wins; however, in the last three games, they have picked up only a couple of points. In their last two fixtures, Neil Lennon’s side have produced 1-1 draws on their trips to Dundee and St Johnstone respectively. Ahead of the home game against Well, Hibs are placed sixth in the league table with eight points.
Well’s season up to this point paints a totally opposite story to that of their hosts’. They started the season with two consecutive defeats, but they have bounced back with three wins on the trot. However, these wins came at their home, and Well are yet to pick up a point on the road this season. Their only away game this season ended in a 4-1 defeat at St Johnstone.
Both sides have managed to score in each of their respective league games this season, and we can expect a high-scoring contest on Saturday.
Last time these two sides played against each other in a league game was during the 2013-14 Premiership. Out of three meetings that season, Well won two and one ended in a draw.
