Match Preview

McCall wants to end on a high Motherwell manager Stuart McCall is desperate for his side to mark their final home game of the season with a celebration. McCall has confirmed that Nicky Law and Darren Randolph will move on this summer and several other Motherwell players could also be playing their last game at Fir Park, with the likes of Tom Hateley and Michael Higdon soon to be out of contract. McCall hopes the fans turn out in force to see off the team that have secured consecutive top-three finishes in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League. And he wants his players to sign off with a win. McCall said: "I've been very, very fortunate to have been in charge of them because they are a great bunch. "I inherited a lot of them but managed to bring in a few as well just to add to it. "I think they deserve to go out on a high. They want to win the game, obviously we all want to win the game, it's a huge game. "But I think the crowd will appreciate them. "Although we had already qualified for the Champions League, I was slightly disappointed when we lost the last game against Dundee United. "Certainly we are desperate to go out with our home performances with a victory." James McFadden is another who could be playing his final game at Fir Park, although he has not ruled out the prospect of extending his short-term deal. McFadden has scored four goals in his last six matches and is determined to maintain that form. The 30-year-old said: "It's a chance to guarantee second place, which is a great achievement. "That's going to be at the forefront of our mind. We've got a job to do and that's to win the game. If we win it's enough to finish second and there's no better way to say goodbye to the fans for the players that won't be here (next season) than to finish second." Henrik Ojamaa is suspended for the game after he was sent off against Inverness last weekend. Ross County comprehensively beat Motherwell in their last meeting but manager Derek Adams admits taking on McCall's side at Fir Park is a different prospect. Motherwell lost 3-0 at Dingwall in February but then embarked on an eight-match unbeaten run, which ended in Inverness last weekend. The Clydesdale Bank Premier League's second-placed side have hit 11 goals in their last four home games and also struck three against County on their previous visit to Fir Park and Adams knows they face a difficult task. Adams said: "It's always difficult going to Fir Park, Motherwell enjoy playing there and they've got a feel for the ground because of the style of the pitch. "When I was there as a player it was always benefical to you as you knew how to play the pitch and Motherwell have done very well at that this season." Defender Branislav Micic remains out with a dislocated shoulder and goalkeeper Mark Brown is also on the sidelines with a fractured hand.
