Motherwell vs Hearts lineups and latest team news

Motherwell

Stuart Kettlewell's position as Motherwell manager is under increasing pressure as the club strives to find their first win in eight matches on Saturday. After picking up ten points from their opening four games, the club have since picked up just two points from their subsequent eight matches which has led to many people calling for Kettlewell to go.

For the home game against Hearts, Kettlewell will be without two first team players – Jonathan Obika and Pape Souare. Obika has managed just ten minutes all season due to injury problems while Souare hasn't managed much more. Both players are a loss at both ends of the pitch and Kettlewell will be hoping they can make a return in the coming weeks.

Predicted lineup

Kelly – Casey, Butcher, Blaney – O'Donnell, Paton, Slattery, Spittal, Spencer – Wilkinson, Biereth

Hearts

Hearts haven't been great so far this season but they have at least made life difficult for every single team they have played. Their defensive record is impressive and manager Steven Naismith will be hoping to use that as a base to build from.

Last time out, Hearts lost 3-1 to Rangers in the Scottish League Cup but Naismith did rotate his team to ensure fresh legs for this encounter with Motherwell. Naismith is without four players for this one with Atkinson, Gordon, Halkett and McKay all unavailable through injury.

Predicted lineup

Clark – Kingsley, Kent, Rowles – Cochrane, Lowry, Devlin, Baningime, Forrest – Boyce, Shankland.

Starting lineups

Official starting lineups will be released 60 minutes before kick-off.
