Motherwell will play hosts to Hamilton Academical in a rather inconsequential league game at Fir Park on Saturday.
Well have nothing left to play for in the Premiership, and they must have their eyes set on the Scottish Cup final against Celtic on May 19th. They are currently placed seventh in the league table with 45 points. Well claimed a 1-0 win over Partick Thistle, and they have lost only of their last five games. Well would fancy themselves for three points against Hamilton, but we don’t expect them to take any unnecessary risks ahead of the final.
Hamilton have lost eight of their last nine games and currently sit in the tenth spot with 33 points. On Tuesday, they lost 1-2 at home to St Johnstone. Despite their poor form, the Accies secured their top-tier status this week as Ross County and Partick Thistle also suffered defeats to Dundee and Motherwell respectively.
The Accies don’t enjoy a good record against Well in recent years. They have picked up only two wins in their previous ten meetings with Well in all competitions. However, both wins have come this season. Back in December, the Accies claimed a 3-1 win over ten-man Well at this ground. In March, they registered a 2-0 home win over their opponents.
