Motherwell and St Johnstone will face each other in a rather meaningless tie at Fir Park on Saturday afternoon.
Both sides are clear of the relegation struggle, and there is nothing left to play for them other than the supremacy in the bottom-half of the table.
Well sit in the seventh spot in the league table with 42 points. They have been difficult to beat and have lost only one of their last six games in the league. Well are also set to play in the Scottish Cup final against Celtic on May 19, and they must have one eye on the upcoming final.
Coming into this game, Well are unbeaten in their last three league games, and last week, they claimed a 2-1 home win over Dundee.
St Johnstone are close behind their opponents in the eighth spot with 39 points. The Saints finished in European places last season, but the ongoing season has been a huge let-down for them. They have also struggled on the road and have lost six of their last eight games on the road. In their last game, they could only manage a goalless draw with Partick Thistle at home.
These two sides have already faced each other three times in the Premiership this season. Back in August, the Saints registered a 4-1 home win over their opponents, who finished the game with eight men. However, Well came out on top with a 2-0 win in their home fixture in February. Last month, both sides played a goalless draw at McDiarmid Park.
