Inverness v Motherwell Betting Tips And Predictions
Location: Tulloch Caledonian Stadium
Date: 28th December 2016
Inverness’ last win was a full nine games ago, their longest winless streak since 2008.
Thats season culminated in relegation for The Caley Jags and the threat of a repeat is real. Nobody doubts the veracity of Richie Foran when claims misfortune. They were certainly very unfortunate to lose at Ibrox on Christmas Eve.
But failure to pick up a point against Rangers won’t define their season. Losing to teams around them will and Motherwell are right in and around them. Caley Thistle could swap places with them at the bottom of the table or could find themselves four points adrift.
The fact that the away side has taken all the points on each of the last five meetings between the sides brings no comfort. That includes Motherwell’s last two trips to The Highlands. A hattrick of away wins would leave an uncomfortable feeling heading into the Highland derby on new year’s eve.
The blame, if you’re looking for it, can be placed at the feet of the forward line. As a team they haven’t scored more than once since blowing a two goal lead at home to Hearts and a mere five goals in total in their last eight games.
Although their last win was a 0-3 victory in Motherwell. They blew The Steelmen away that day with Mark McGhee pointing out that his team simply couldn’t live with Inverness’ movement. But you get the feeling he will be better prepared this time around, despite a poor run of their own.
They haven’t won in five but have played four of the top five sides in that time. Had Louis Moult converted a penalty against Aberdeen they could be looking at their haul being considerably higher than two points.
Well’ look to have a little more confidence about them. Little wonder with someone like Louis Moult leading their line. His goals could make the difference.
