Manager thoughts

Hibs manager Lee Johnson said: “We're not a million miles away, and that's the most frustrating bit in this period. I think we've got a good opportunity in this next run of games to pick up points. We've just got to get that next win to build everyone's confidence."

Motherwell boss Steven Hammell said: “It's a big game for us. We always want to do well here and the support the fans give us is excellent. We need that to continue, it makes such a big difference when we come here, but we also need to play our part in that and give them something to get behind.

Bookies’ odds

Home 19/10, Draw 23/10, Away 29/20, with McBookie.

Another thing

Hibs’ last league win at Fir Park came on August 1 2021, winning 3-2 after being 2-1 down at half-time. Seven of the squad involved that day could feasibly start this Sunday.
