FootyMAD's Motherwell match preview

History of the Heart Of Midlothian v Motherwell fixture

Hearts prepare to entertain Motherwell at Tynecastle Stadium on Saturday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Jambo's are clearly on top, having won 67 and lost only 22 of the 119 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Tynecastle Stadium was less than a year ago, in May 2004, as the Jambo's squeezed past their rivals by a scoreline of 3-2 in a Scottish Premier match.
