Rangers won the last league meeting with Hibs at Ibrox

It was goalless the last time St Mirren and Motherwell met in December

Motherwell and St Mirren will both be looking to get back on track this weekend after suffering defeats in their last league games before the break.

The Steelmen, who still have an outside chance of a top-six place, have lost their last two home league games and could lose three in a row at Fir Park in the top-flight for the first time since November 2022.

They have also conceded the most home goals (26) and lost the joint-most home games (seven) in the competition this season.

St Mirren are still pushing for fourth and have won two of their last four games against Motherwell in the league, keeping clean sheets in their last two meetings.

Can Dundee move into the top-six?

Dundee had to settle for a point on their last visit to St Johnstone after blowing a two-goal lead and will be hoping to avoid a repeat as they look to secure a place in the top-six.

Tony Docherty’s side currently sit seventh, two points behind Hibs with a game in hand.

St Johnstone have failed to win any of their last five home matches in the top-flight (D3 L2) and they could end the weekend in the relegation play-off if that run does not end against Dundee.

Saints goalkeeper Dimitar Mitov has faced more shots (449) and made more saves (108) than any other goalkeeper in the Scottish Premiership this season.
