Hearts Preview – Can Hearts make it three straight wins for the first time in over a year?

A Scottish Cup semi-final to look forward to courtesy of a deserved 1-0 win against Rangers was followed by a 3-1  victory away to arch rivals Hibernian in the Edinburgh derby which briefly lifted them off of bottom spot. Hamilton’s surprise win the following night mean the Tynecastle club are back looking up at the rest of the table, two points behind.
Hearts do have a game in hand though and will be as confident as they have been all season at the moment.
Our betting prediction:
Hearts win and both teams to score

Bet at Bet365

The challenge for Daniel Stendl and his players is now to maintain this level of form to give them the best chance of survival and the hope of making a second successive Scottish Cup final. They play Hibs in the semi-final next month.
It’s just two home wins in the league all season for Hearts which is a dire statistic and needing to change. They have five matches at Tynecastle remaining this season which will all be massive in their quest to stay up. They’ve also kept just one clean sheet from their 14 home matches so far – and that was way back in August.

Motherwell Preview – Will Motherwell build on their first win in eight to remain in charge of third spot?

Stephen Robinson would have been delighted with his team’s 4-1 win over Ross County on Wednesday – their first victory since the 22nd January. That was a run of eight matches without a win and losing four of them in the league. It’s been somewhat fortunate that Aberdeen – their closest competitors for third spot – have also been dropping points on a regular basis.

The win on Wednesday means the Fir Park club are three points ahead of Aberdeen in a battle that is likely going to go to the wire. Considering this was a team who failed to make the top six last season, it’s been some turn around for them regardless of how it ends.

‘Well’s away form has been very good in the main with seven wins in 14 games. The last of those away victories came in January away to Aberdeen. That was the fourth straight away win in the league and the sort of form they are looking to find again.
