    Motherwell U19s 1 – 1 St Mirren U19s

    Motherwell U19s came from behind to draw 1-1 with St Mirren at soggy Creamery Park this afternoon.

    Despite being on top for the majority of the first-half, including a goal from Keiran McGachie that was chalked off for offside, both sides went in level at the break.

    The visitors took the lead early in the second half when Sean Kelly managed to find space inside the box to prod home after Saints had worked a neat corner kick.

    That goal didn’t deflate the Steelmen though and they were back level when substitute Craig Moore, who had earlier hit the post with his first touch of the match, was on hand to tuck the ball home from close range following a stramash in the Saints area.

    Both teams traded chances as the game headed towards a finish but it ended all square with Motherwell again disappointed to not pick up all three points.

    TV: Lasley hoping for more success

    Midfielder Keith Lasley hopes Motherwell can continue their excellent run of away form when they face Aberdeen at Pittodrie tomorrow.

    Stuart McCall’s men have won on the road at St Mirren Park, Broadwood, East End Park, Tannadice, Easter Road and the Caledonian Stadium this season but will face a tough task against a somewhat rejuvenated Aberdeen side.

    But the 32-year old former Plymouth player is aiming to put one over his former bosses Craig Brown for the fourth successive time.

    He said: “We seem to have a good record against Aberdeen and we’ll look to continue that tomorrow.

    “It seems to suit is to play away from Fir Park. Teams tend to attack you more when they are at home which leaves space for us to attack which suits our style.

    “When we are at home, the onus is on us to set the agenda and the way we set up and play is probably more suited to the former.”

    TV: McCall focused on Dons test

    ‘Well boss Stuart McCall expects a tough test against a somewhat rejuvenated Aberdeen when the teams lock horns at Pittodrie tomorrow.

    A tough test against Rangers aside, the Dons have won their previous two home games against Dunfermline and Dundee Utd, scoring seven goals in the process.

    Games between the two teams have been exceptionally tight in the last year with only the odd goal separating the sides.

    And former Scotland International McCall reckons ‘Well will have to replicate some of the form the team displayed the last time they were in the Granite City.

    Youths return to action against Saints

    The Under 19s return to action looking to bounce back after last week’s disappointing Cup exit at the hands of Hamilton Accies.

    The young Steelmen side crashed out of the SFA Youth Cup last Friday but the side are desperate to put that right against St Mirren.

    Head of Youth Development Gordon Young said, “We are now playing teams for a second time and if we have beaten a team, we are looking to see how far we have come since. If we have lost, we are looking at home much we have improved.

    “The last game against St Mirren, certainly for one half at least, we played really well so the challenge for the players is there.”

    TV: Hughes signs on for a second term

    Motherwell have today re-signed 29-year old former midfielder Stephen Hughes on a short-term contract.

    Hughes, a former Scotland International, was previously at Fir Park during the Mark McGhee era at the club, playing over 70 times in Claret and Amber.

    He left in the summer of 2009 to join Norwich City and although he enjoyed back-to-back promotions with the Canaries, his second season was dogged by injuries.

    He joined up with the squad last month in an attempt to get fit but his performances in training and during bounce games have convinced ‘Well boss Stuart McCall to sign him up, initially until 3rd January 2012.

    [pullquote]The team are doing really well just now so the challenge is there for me and the other boys in the fringes to push them, keep them on their toes, and try and win a spot in the starting eleven.”[/pullquote]

    Motherwell-born Hughes began his career with Rangers and has also had spells with Leicester City and Milton Keynes Dons.

    Speaking exclusively to MFC TV, Hughes said, “I am delighted; the manager was good enough to let me come in and train with the boys and it is great for me to get something sorted even though it is short-term.

    “The team are doing really well just now so the challenge is there for me and the other boys in the fringes to push them, keep them on their toes, and try and win a spot in the starting eleven.”

    TV: Reserves win seven-goal thriller

    Motherwell Reserves came from behind to beat St Mirren 4-3 at Dalziel Park this afternoon.

    Saints took the lead early on when Jon McShane swivelled to rifle home a twenty-yard shot low into the far corner. The visitors doubled their advantage shortly after, David Barron’s low effort deflecting off Jonathan Page and into the net.

    However, Motherwell hit back midway through the half; Gary Smith sprung the offside trap, latching on to a lovely Jamie Pollock pass over the top of the defence, before drilling home from close range.

    The Steelmen drew level when the attacking trailist, one of three playing for ‘Well, got on the end of a terrific Jordan Halsman cross from the right to bullet home a header from about eight yards out. Incredibly, within sixty seconds, Motherwell got their noses in front and what a sublime goal it was.

    It was created by Ross Forbes, the midfielder dinking an exquisite sixty-yard ball over the top of the Saints’ backline into the path of Stuart Carswell. The youngster cut inside his marker before lashing an unstoppable drive into the top left hand corner, leaving Graeme Smith absolutely helpless.

    In an enthralling first-half, St Mirren, shocked at throwing away a two goal advantage, managed to get themselves level before the break and again it came from another wicked deflection. Barron and Nigel Hasselbaink combined just inside the area before eventually cutting the ball back for Joe McKee. The on-loan Burnley midfielder had taken up a good position and he was rewarded when his low shot spun off the unlucky Page and into the net.

    The second half was less eventful in terms of goals, yielding just one, which would prove the winner for ‘Well. Ross Forbes released substitute Adam Cummins down the right flank and his tantalising cross to the far post was gobbled up by Gary Smith who rose above Barron to head past Smith.

    Motherwell: Trialist, Halsman, Page, Trialist, McKinnon, Forbes, Pollock, Hughes, Carswell, Trialist, Smith

    Subs: Howarth, Lawless, Cummins
