With St Mirren looking anxiously over their shoulders as Hearts reel them in, we can expect a tough match as they scrap for their first win of the season. The increasing desperation around Greenhill Road comes as a result of an early League Cup exit (at the hands of Queen of the South) together with a solitary point from the first four league games and the alarming fact they haven't won a home game since February. No wonder Lennon's odds of an imminent departure have shortened
Ramsden's indiscretion against Kilmarnock will force him to the stand for this one and Stuart McCall will have to judge whether Anier's exertions for Estonia will force a change up front. Neilsen played for the Faroe Islands in their losses away to Kazakhstan and at home against Germany. Carswell, who celebrated his 20th birthday on Monday, is steadily cementing his place in the starting eleven and he'll be looking to extend his run.
The enforced change means that Kerr is likely to have his first start of the campaign at right back but the rest of the line up will have a familiar feel.
Both teams will be eager to take the points and with the benefit of a free week there should be no holding back. Motherwell have not won in Paisley since August 2011 when Hateley scored with free kick in added time. All the indications are that our striking duo will have the game sewn up long before the final whistle t ensure a 2-0 victory.
Remember our last trip to Paisley?
