Is Lee Johnson on the brink of being sacked as Hibernian manager?
On Monday, his team were hammered 3-0 at Tynecastle in the Edinburgh derby by Heart of Midlothian.
This means the Hibees have lost nine of their last 11 Premiership matches, only beating St Mirren and Livingston since a 1-0 win over Motherwell in early-October.
Away from home, that’s now six successive defeats for Hibs, which doesn’t suggest they’re going to turn it around here does it?
Motherwell meanwhile are four points and two places worse-off than their hosts, currently hovering dangerously close to the relegation zone.
The Steelmen drew 1-1 at the Tony Macaroni Arena to start 2023, thanks to Kevin van Veen’s spectacular equaliser.
Liam Kelly also staked his claim to be Scotland’s number one, saving two penalties in three minutes at Almondvale.
Stevie Hammell’s men are now winless in six, only victorious twice since mid-August, both of which have come on the road.
At Fir Park, that 1-0 win over Livingston and a 4-0 hammering of Inverness in the League Cup are their only wins in ten attempts.
So, both clubs are in desperate need of a victory, making this a huge game for both.
