Hibernian have done remarkably well under manager Neil Lennon this season, but they will come into this game on the back of a 1-0 defeat at Celtic.
Hibs will be hoping for a much better outcome when they host Motherwell at Easter Road on Wednesday. The hosts, who currently sit in the fourth spot with 38 points, have lost only one of their last five league games. However, another stat says that they have managed to win just one of their last five games in all competitions.
Hibs have struggled to score goals in the recent weeks, with forward Simon Murray without a goal in last eight games.
Ahead of the game, Hibs have a ten-point lead over their opponents, but Well do have a game in hand. The visitors managed a respectable 1-1 draw at Hearts on the weekend, and they find themselves in the sixth spot with 28 points.
Well will come into the game with a terrible away record this season. Prior to the draw at Hearts, Well had lost their last five away games in the league.
Both sides have played twice this season – the first game at Easter Road ended in a 2-2 draw and the game at Fir Park ended 1-0 in favour of the Hibs.
