Kallum Higginbotham: In the Motherwell squad

Sunday, January 20

Motherwell v St Johnstone

Kallum Higginbotham is in the Motherwell squad after boss Stuart McCall signed the 23-year-old Huddersfield forward on loan until the end of the season. Stopper Shaun Hutchinson has recovered from a tight hamstring while defender Steven Saunders is available again after recovering from a knee injury.

St Johnstone boss Steve Lomas will assess the few "niggles" he has in his squad, but defender Steven Anderson, however, is ruled out again with a knee injury. Midfielder Jamie Adams will undergo surgery on a back problem which has decimated his season and is unlikely to feature again before the end of the campaign.

Last season: Motherwell 5 St Johnstone 1, Motherwell 3 St Johnstone 2, St Johnstone 0 Motherwell 3, Motherwell 0 St Johnstone 3

Last five league matches: Motherwell W L W D L; St Johnstone D L D D W

Top scorers (all competitions): Michael Higdon (Motherwell) 13; Murray Davidson (St Johnstone) 6

Referee: William Collum (Scotland)

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
