Hearts to keep up unbeaten streak

Motherwell might be in terrific form at the moment with four wins and one draw from their last five but they are not unbeatable. Their longer terms form shows that with the fact they have lost three of their last 10. That’s key to our reasoning for backing Hearts to win along with home advantage. Hearts have drawn three of their past five matches but with one blemish in their last 10 games they have a lot to be positive about. The winning mentality is long established in the players and the fact this game is on their patch gives them the edge.

Both teams to notch

Both Hearts and Motherwell are more than capable of keeping clean sheets; that is undeniable. We don’t think either side will though because the respective attacks are half decent too. Hearts have scored in nine of their past 10 games. Motherwell have netted in eight of their last 10. The league average goals scored sits at 1.5 and 1.7 respectively too, which is a decent return compared to most of the league. Four of the last five head to head encounters have seen goals at both ends too.

Boyce to bang in yet another goal

Our final prediction tips Hearts man Liam Boyce to find the net during the 90 minutes. Boyce is fighting it out at the top of the goal scoring charts early on and given his latest form it’s probably a safe assumption that the Motherwell backline aren’t exactly buzzing at the prospect of facing him. In his last five games Boyce had netted four goals with only the goalless draw with Hibs the match that has seen him shutout in that period. Scoring goals is all about confidence and Boyce is on cloud nine after his start to the campaign.

Hearts vs Motherwell: Match overview

Hearts

Hearts are one of just two teams that remain unbeaten in the Premiership. That form has been underpinned through a solid backline but with Liam Boyce at the sharp end of things they’re scoring the goals to take maximum points from games more often than not too. Cammy Logan remains injured.

Motherwell

Hearts might be flying in the league at the moment but Motherwell aren’t far behind. In fact, they’re just one point and one place behind and only two points off Rangers in first. They also have their own hotshot striker in Tony Watt; he scored last time out. On the injury front, Motherwell should have a clean bill of health with Sondre Johansen the only exception.
