The two sides share centre stage as they clash in Britain’s only televised league match tomorrow. And, with a recent history of goal frenzies when these sides meet, Law is hoping Hibs’ travelling support – whom he feels helped create rousing atmospheres when they visited Fir Park last season – will roll up in big numbers again for what has become one of the most eagerly-awaited matches on the SPL calendar.
“Because it’s a Friday, it will probably be the only game on telly at the time so we should get people all over Britain watching,” he said. “If we can put on a good show for a nationwide audience, it can only be good for Scottish football.
“Hibs brought a good support through last year [the attendance was 8,065 when Motherwell beat Hibs 4-3 in a midweek game in February] so hopefully there’s another big crowd this time. The atmosphere that night against Hibs was the best we had last season.”
