Football 1/8/2021. Due to the 3 pm blackout, there is just one televised game in Scotland. There is also a game in the Trophee Des Champions.
Football 1/8/2021 – Motherwell v Hibernian Team News
- Graham Alexander has overseen something of an overhaul as Motherwell gaffer, starting to bring in his own players in a variety of different positions and hasn’t been afraid to rotate in the Premier Sports Cup matches.
- Defensively, Darragh O’Connor has arrived from Leicester City and has started every Premier Sports Cup match so far. In midfield, Callum Slattery has signed from Southampton but has only briefly came on against Annan in their last match.
- In attack, former Tranmere winger Kaiyne Woolery has been given the nod in three of that quartet of games. Another new arrival, Justin Amaluzor, took his chance with scoring the opener against the Galabankies.
- Either Connor Shields or Kevin van Veen (formerly of Queen of the South and Scunthorpe respectively) could be handed a start at striker.
- Jack Ross was able to rotate in Hibernian’s Europa Conference League tie against Andorran outfit FC Santa Coloma, due to a 3-0 victory in Edinburgh in the first leg, before a 2-1 win sealed a 5-1 aggregate scoreline.
- Josh Doig, who enjoyed a phenomenal breakthrough season in his first full campaign, was restored to the backline for the second leg overseas. Joe Newell was sent off in the first leg, allowing Jake Doyle-Hayes to make his debut in the second, but should be restored to the starting lineup here.
- Scott Allan was also given the nod in the first leg and could well feature here in a more advanced role. Daniel Mackay and Jamie Murphy netted in the return leg and both could be pushing for a start, supporting star striker Kevin Nisbet.
