Match Preview

Well have worries Clydesdale Bank Premier League leaders Motherwell have a couple of unnamed injury doubts for the visit of Celtic. But Shaun Hutchinson will play after having four stitches inserted in a head would during Wednesday`s Scottish Communities Cup defeat by Rangers. Manager Stuart McCall, who is still missing defender Steven Saunders (knee), has set about trying to solve the defensive "naivety" that he feels was the root cause of their Ibrox disappointment The defeat against a team which had lost to Queen of the South in the Ramsdens Cup and remain without an away win in the Irn-Bru Third Division led to questions about Motherwell`s record against the Old Firm. As well as the obvious answer that both Glasgow teams have bigger squads and resources, McCall pointed out they had drawn against Rangers last season and lost to a late Lee McCulloch goal, and also suffered two narrow defeats to Celtic, who his team last beat in February 2011. McCall said: "Celtic we have pushed close on occasion and managed to beat them once, Rangers we have pushed close on occasions but not on other occasions. "The other night I always said the first goal was going to be crucial and the atmosphere was like a big Old Firm game once they got the goal. "We didn`t play particularly well but it was through defensive errors, and that came through naivety." Georgios Samaras returns to the Celtic for the first time since injuring his elbow playing for Greece earlier in the month. Fellow striker Lassad Nouioui will miss out with a calf injury. Adam Matthews is looking to silence his teasing team-mates as soon as possible by breaking his scoring duck at the Parkhead club. The 20-year-old former Cardiff right-back has yet to find the net since signing for the Hoops in the summer of 2011. He was mostly recently denied his first goal in green and white by a fine save from Raith Rovers keeper David McGurn during the Hoops 4-1 Scottish Communities League Cup third-round win at Parkhead in midweek. Matthews said: "I am starting to think it is never going to come. "But hopefully, if I keep hitting them as well as I did against Raith, one of them will go in and hopefully it will be quite soon because some of the boys are giving me a bit of hassle about it. "This season I have had more opportunities to score which I am happy with. "I am getting in the positions to have a chance so hopefully I can take one of them and then get a couple more. "I can't set a higher standard than one so that's what I am looking for this season - and take it from there next season."
