Motherwell vs Kilmarnock Tips and Prediction
Motherwell, who are currently tenth in the Scottish Premiership standings with 17 points after 16 games under Steven Hammell , have had a poor 2022–23 season thus far.
Going into their encounter against Kilmarnock, the Steelmen have just two points above the relegation playoff spot after winning just once in their last eight efforts across all competitions.
Despite being scheduled to play St. Mirren at Fir Park last Saturday, Motherwell vs. St. Mirren was one of many games in Scotland that were postponed due to the winter weather.
Motherwell has had trouble building any form of momentum at home, collecting only four points from seven games, the lowest record in the division.
Motherwell will try to turn things around at home this weekend with hopes of passing Hibernian and moving up to ninth place in the Scottish Premiership if other results in the league go their way.
Kilmarnock could also use a string of victories after a rough start to the season that left them 11th in the standings with 15 points from 17 games.
Since taking management at Killie in January 2022, Derek McInnes has performed admirably. Since being promoted, though, his team has had trouble keeping up with the tempo of the Scottish Premiership.
Kilmarnock has the second-worst defensive record in the division and the fewest goals scored in the league with just 13, so if they want to stay up, they will need to improve.
When the teams last met, Kilmarnock lost 3-1 to Hearts away at Tynecastle Stadium with to goals from Josh Ginnelly and Lawrence Shankland that more than offset Ash Taylor’s response.
They will now focus on Motherwell on Friday, where a win for Kilmarnock may potentially lift them out of the relegation playoff zone.
We anticipate a fiercely contested contest that could go down to the wire in a game where variations at the bottom of the table are present.
Motherwell will perform just enough on this occasion to defeat Kilmarnock and get further from the relegation playoff spot.
