Motherwell are not doing good in the league, and they can’t seem to pick up a win. Can they turn around their form against equally out-of-form St Johnstone at Fir Park on Tuesday?
Well could only manage a 1-1 draw against Partick Thistle on the weekend, and they have now managed just one win in their last 12 league games.
After a bright start to the season, Well have fallen quite far behind the top sides in the league. As things stand, the hosts are placed seventh in the league with 29 points.
The Saints haven’t been doing much better either and they come into this game without a win in their last five games. However, they do have a strong away record this season and they have lost just one of their last five games on the road. This run includes wins at places like Rangers and Hibernian.
Over the course of the season, the Saints have 1.27 points per game in the league, so we expect them to pick up at least a draw in this game.
The visitors sit in the eighth place with 26 games, but they have played a couple of games fewer than their opponents.
Earlier this season, the Saints claimed a 4-1 win over Well as the latter finished the game with only eight men.
