Motherwell manager Stuart McCall is hoping to end a lengthy wait for a home victory in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League when Dunfermline come calling on Tuesday night.

The Steelmen have failed to pick up three points at Fir Park since September and McCall believes victory over the Pars would be the perfect way to begin a run home matches.

He said: "It would be great. This keeps getting thrown up every week that we have a home game - and rightly so. The only way we can end talk of that is by winning a game."

He added: "We've got Dunfermline and then we've got St Johnstone at home on Saturday, who came here and beat us 3-0. Then we've got the cup game [against Morton] so we've got three big home games coming and hopefully we can turn in the performances that I know the boys are capable of."

McCall is also keen to address the issue of a lack of goals but has yet to decide whether new recruit Henrik Ojamaa will be handed his first start after some impressive substitute performances.

The Well boss said: "He maybe could, we've not decided yet.

"He has certainly come off the bench a few times for us and looked very sharp and he's getting there match fitness wise.

"It has certainly been a problem, the lack of goals, but I take great confidence from the Dundee United game because we created a lot.

"Our final shot maybe didn't test the goalkeeper as much as we would have liked.

"We should have done better with the final finish and it wasn't to be but the confidence and the fact that we went out and created so much against a good Dundee United side will hopefully auger well for the future."
