Motherwell: Fancied to win at Kilmarnock

Motherwell: Fancied to win at Kilmarnock

Motherwell may have been beaten in their last two SPL away games but they can get back on track on the road at Kilmarnock this weekend.

Prior to losing to Celtic and St Mirren, Well had only lost one away match in nine and look better set up to perform away from Fir Park.

Their opponents on Saturday, Killie, have won only four times at home in the SPL and are winless in their last five in the league, home and away. They picked up an impressive success over Inverness in the Scottish Cup last week but just aren't consistent enough to back to make it successive victories.

Motherwell should be fresh having not played in the Scottish Cup last weekend while their match with Dundee United the midweek before was postponed due to weather conditions.

They performed well without the departed Jamie Murphy in the 3-2 win over St Johnstone and the evidence makes the away win look reasonable value.

Elsewhere, St Mirren new-boy Esmael Goncalves to score at anytime against Aberdeen looks a good bet.

The Portuguese striker, on loan from Rio Ave, has scored four goals in three games since his move to Paisley - one in the SPL, one in the League Cup and two in the Scottish Cup.

Aberdeen have yet to win in 2012 and were knocked out of the Scottish Cup last weekend by Hibernian. More worryingly for Dons fans and boss Craig Brown, they've only won once in seven games at Pittodrie.

Saints are flying under Danny Lennon and they will fancy their chances of a win in the Granite City. They will certainly create chances against the Dons defence and considering how hot Goncalves is, and the fact he is still something of an unknown quantity, he's worth backing.
