Champions Celtic visit third-placed Motherwell for an early 12.45pm kick-off on Saturday afternoon.

"The be all and end all is to keep this run going" - Neil Lennon
The visitors are without Adam Matthews, Charlie Mulgrew, Nir Biton, James Forrest and Derk Boerrigter while young defender Darnell Fisher has recently undergone knee surgery.

"We want to finish the season strongly. Individual players have targets and we as a team have targets but the be all and end all is to keep this run going," manager Neil Lennon told BBC Scotland. "We have had one defeat in 33 [league] games so we would like to finish the season with just the one defeat."

Motherwell are also without a number of players, including suspended skipper Keith Lasley.

Stuart Carswell, Lee Hollis, Paul Lawson, James McFadden and Simon Ramsden are similarly ruled out but Shaun Hutchinson returns.
