Ross McCormack vs Alan Hutton/Carlos Cuellar

It will take something of a combined effort on the parts of Hutton and Cuellar to stop the fleet footed Mccormack, who has been playing in the wide areas in a 4-3-3 formation and has been nothing short of fantastic in recent weeks. His technique has looked good and his pace has caused defences real problems and this form has not gone unnoticed, as he was rewarded with the Young Player Of The Month award for November as a result.

I think both Cuellar and Hutton have what it takes to keep him quiet in open play, but his free kick taking ability is also dangerous and Hutton in particular has to avoid giving away uneeded free kicks in dangerous areas.

As if a game against the Rangers isn't enough to drive your adrenaline up, he will surely be keen to get one over his old team and show that twe were wrong to show him the door some 17 months ago.

Stephen Hughes vs Barry Ferguson.

Hughes, much like McCormack also returns to Ibrox with something of a point to prove. Despite his struggles at Leicester he appears to have come back to Scotland as a better player and his running from midfield has played a significant part in Motherwell's good run of results. He was particularly impressive against Aberdeen two weeks ago.

Some feel if he carries on in the form he has been showing then International Recognition wont be far away.

Ferguson must shake off the cobwebs he has shown in recent weeks and up his game, otherwise the player deemed not good enough fopr Rangers will show up the Rangers's Prodigal Son.

Stephan Craigan and Mark Reynolds vs Jean Claude Darcheville/Kris Boyd/Steven Naimsith

At 31 Craigan is the veteran of Motherwell's defence. His presence and experience, particularly at International level have been vital in helping young Reynolds find a level of consistancy and quickly develop into one of the countries best prospects.

They form a rugged and rigid tandem, particularly away from home where Moterwell have only conceded 8 goals, but this often goes unnoticed due to there fancy and flexible attacking football.

Naisy will hopefully carry on the excellent form he showed on Sunday and give both Craigan and Reynolds a lot to think about and Boyd is always a good bet for a goal against Moterwell having scored four gaols against them so far in his Rangers career.

Thoughts?

Cuellar is in imperious form at the moment and has recovered from the earlier lull he had. Hutton's defending has been flaky recently and I suspect McCormack may get some small joy at the left unless Hutton can return to his peak. That said, the Motherwell man won't get past Cuellar should he bypass our RB.

Even money here. On paper Ferguson is leaps and bounds the superior player, but that counts for nothing when your form is stricken. With Hughes in fine fettle right now, it will take Barry getting something like back to his better to overcome his opponent.

Craigan is very much an experienced campaigner and one of that significant group of SPL defenders who always seem to be able to handle the OF.

But I don't think he's faced the mght of JCD before, and Naismith has hit form at the right time.
