History of the Motherwell v Heart of Midlothian fixture

Hearts face a trip to Motherwell at Fir Park on Sunday afternoon, having the edge over their hosts in previous meetings. The visitors have won 53 of the 121 previous games, with the hosts winning just 45.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in November 2005, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a Scottish Premier match.

Recent respective form guides

Motherwell's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While The 'Well have scored 8, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Hearts's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. Jambo's have conceded 10 goals in these games, and only hit 3 in reply.

Motherwell find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 6 games have yielded only 3 points. Hearts find themselves in a respectable 3rd position, courtesy of the 10 points they have accumulated from 6 games.
