Motherwell manager Stuart McCall admits the weather could dictate his team selection for the visit of Clydesdale Bank Premier League bottom club Dunfermline.
With weather warnings issued for strong wind on Wednesday, McCall has some tactical alterations in mind for the Fir Park clash.
"I was at Albion Rovers yesterday (Monday) and the wind just spoiled any chance of having a decent game of football," McCall said.
"The bottom line is you have just got to do whatever it takes to get three points. I won't name the side until before the kick-off. Normally I would have done it but I'll see what the conditions hold for us and the way to go about playing not only Dunfermline but the conditions."
Motherwell were slow to adapt to windy conditions during a goalless draw against Dundee United and their abandoned match against Hibernian, which the visitors led 1-0 when a floodlight fire struck.
McCall said: "There were times when we tried to play too much football and the bottom line is, when it's conditions like that, you just want to put pressure on the opposing defence, get it in the box and have shots on goal, rather than trying to play football in conditions that are not suitable for a passing style of game.
"But yesterday Brechin, with the wind in the first half, were trying to put it in the box but it was sailing out of play. Albion Rovers were trying to get it in the box and it was blowing out of it. It can make a mockery of the game sometimes and I'm just hoping it's not as bad as forecast."
Motherwell are looking to bounce back from their 2-0 defeat by Hearts on Christmas Eve, only their second SPL reverse against teams from outside the Old Firm. And McCall expects his side to motivate themselves to atone following a rare off day away from home.
"Four or five of the lads came in and straight away held their hands up," McCall said. "It was like 'I'm Spartacus'. They said 'I was terrible, I hold my hands up, I'm sorry'. So they are conscientious lads.
"You don't go out to play not particularly well but we were playing against a side where, if their good players are playing well and if you're not at your best then you can get beat, and that's what happened. We're not lying down and accepting it but we can't always be at our best."
