Motherwell, who are currently ninth in the Scottish Premiership standings with 17 points after 16 games under Steven Hammell, have had an inconsistent 2022–23 season thus far.

Going into their match against Kilmarnock, the Steelmen have just two points above the relegation playoff spot after winning just once in their last eight attempts 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 sort of momentum at home, collecting just four points from seven games, the worst record in the division.

This weekend, Motherwell will look to reverse their back luck at home and could leapfrog Hibernian into eighth in the Scottish Premiership if other results in the division fall their way.

Kilmarnock could also use a string of victories after a difficult start to the season that left them 11th in the standings with 15 points from 17 games.

Since taking over 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 attempts that have resulted in goals. If they want to stay in the division, they must improve.

When the teams last met, Kilmarnock lost 3-1 to Hearts away at Tynecastle Stadium thanks 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 could potentially lift them out of the relegation playoff spot.
