Caley Thistle only lost three times before the winter break - once to Celtic and twice against Stuart McCall's team.
Michael Higdon netted a hat-trick when Motherwell won 4-1 at Fir Park in September and the next time Inverness lost was a 5-1 home thrashing by the Steelmen, their only defeat in a run of 21 games.
Inverness go into the Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash one point above their hosts in second place but McCall's team have a game in hand.
Tudur Jones said: "It would be nice to get the points against them, that's for sure.
"They are probably looking at the table thinking 'how are Inverness above us' after the way they have pumped us twice.
"It's a good game for us, it's a game we feel we have to be right at it.
"Previously against Motherwell we have conceded sloppy goals early in the game and conceded a second one soon after.
"We have to make sure we are ready to go."
