Match preview

Will Motherwell get back on track?

On Saturday, the Steelmen were beaten 2-1 at Rugby Park by Kilmarnock, despite taking an early lead through Kevin van Veen.

Before this, Stevie Hammell had won three of four matches in charge, but his team have now slipped down to fifth in the Premiership.

Motherwell have actually fallen in this round of the League Cup in each of the last three seasons, seeking to avoid déjà vu at Fir Park.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle meantime reached the final of this competition in 2014, beaten by Aberdeen on penalties at Celtic Park.

These days, Caley Thistle find themselves third bottom of the Championship, following Saturday’s 1-0 home defeat by Greenock Morton.

Back in July, Billy Dodds’ team impressed in the group stage of this competition, amassing 11 points and topping their section.

This included a 2-1 victory at the Tony Macaroni Arena over Livingston, so can the Highlanders now win away to another top-flight side?
