It Motherwell are one of the form teams in Scottish football. Their run of six league wins in a row is only matched by Celtic, their upcoming opponents on Sunday.

It is a game that Stephen Robinson’s side should relish. They are well within their rights to go to Celtic Park and have a go.

Normally when teams go to Celtic Park they sit back and try to hit on the break. However, such is the form of the Steelmen that they should play with attacking intent.

A player like Jake Hastie, who has been a key man in the recent run of form should go to Celtic Park with the chance to make a name for himself.

His recent goal in the 2-1 win over Hearts was his fifth in his last six games, which is a fine goalscoring run.

The midfield duo of David Turnbull and David Campbell will also be key men. They could thrive against a Hoops team lacking the suspended Scott Brown.

The game could be coming at a good time for Motherwell. Celtic will be playing only three days after their Europa League second leg against Valencia.

Celtic could be heavy-legged after the game, and that could play into Motherwell’s hands. It could be said that a point would be a fine result for this emerging young team, but they should go to Celtic Park with winning on their mind.
