Motherwell will entertain Dundee at Fir Park on Saturday knowing that a win will complete a perfect fourfold against the doomed Dees. Complacency will be the main threat to a home win.
On paper this looks like a home banker. Dundee have had a horrible season with only four league wins in thirty four attempts. They have scored only three times in their last eight outings and lost every one. It has been a devastating few months and most Dens Park regulars are already resigned to Championship football next season.
Jim McIntyre maintains that his side cannot dwell on past results and that they must look forward but with a side that is lacking in confidence fine words will bring little comfort. They will rely on the diminishing firepower of Kenny Miller to give them a lifeline. He is tgheir top scorer with seven to his credit.
Stephen Robinson will surely stress that his charges replicate the first half performance from last week’s draw with Hamilton and that they do not make the mistake of easing up if they seem to have the game under control.
Previous meetings have all gone our way. A 3-1 win at Dens in September was followed with a 1-0 at Fir Park in November before a David Turnbull penalty secured another single goal win in January.
This could be our chance to say farewell to Jake Hastie as speculation about his future seems to be nearing an end. Jamie Semple will be hoping for a debut after sitting on the bench for the last two matches.
Well Society members are encouraged to bring a friend for free. To reserve a free ticket members have to phone the club on 01698 338002 or stop into the ticket office by 4pm on Friday.
