    TV: Law focused on Euro spot

    Nicky Law is desperate for the Steelmen to finish the season strongly so he can realise a personal ambition of playing in European competition.

    The former Rotherham midfielder said when he arrived at Fir Park last summer that he came north of the border to try and qualify for a Euro spot.

    And with ‘Well battling it out at the right end of the table, the 24-year old is determined to get over the finishing line, starting with Hibs tomorrow night.

    “If you ask anyone in the dressing room, well, certainly the English lads, they’d say qualifying for Europe is a massive reason to come and play in Scotland,” he admitted.

    “Back home in League One and League Two you can never get the chance of playing in Europe. Every player will be watching the games on TV tonight and, as a footballer, these are the games you want to play in.

    “We have been in the top three of four pretty much since the first game of the season and people have maybe wondered if we could stay there. We have, the form of the lads has been brilliant.

    “To let that go now would be a crime from us; it’s everything we want now and everything we’re focusing on now and our attention is on securing it as fast as we can.”

    TV: McCall looks ahead to Hibs

    ‘Well boss Stuart McCall is wary of a wounded Hibs ahead of tomorrow’s Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash at Fir Park.

    Pat Fenlon’s side crashed to a heavy home defeat at the hands of an in-form Celtic side last Sunday.

    But McCall is sure the visitors will be keen to bounce back at a ground that has been favourable this campaign.

    He said: “Hibs knocked us out the cup in disappointing circumstances and then they came here and were deservedly one-nil up before the match got abandoned.

    “Before their disappointing result on Sunday, against a very strong Celtic side, they had put a couple of back to back clean sheets together.

    “They’ve bought in a lot of players which can sometimes give a club a lift although sometimes they can take a wee while to gel. They’ll be coming here fighting for their lives, there’s no doubt about that.

    “(Gary) O’Connor has scored three goals here already in the two games. He started off really well and although he’s not been as prolific recently, he’s always a threat. He’s got good ability, as has (Leigh) Griffiths, and they’ve bought in (Eion) Doyle and (Roy) O’Donovan who both have decent goal scoring records so we’re well aware of their danger.

    “But we will focus on ourselves as always. It’s a big, big game for us and a win would help us cement our third place by a further three points.”

    Pollock joins Clyde on loan

    Youngster Jamie Pollock has gone out on a month’s loan to Third Division side Clyde.

    Pollock, 20, has found first-team football hard to come by this season. In fact, his last appearance came almost one year ago when he was a second half substitute against Celtic.

    An attacking midfielder, Pollock made his debut in December 2009, again against Celtic, when he was introduced by the then manager Jim Gannon. He has since gone on to make a further four substitutes appearances in Claret and Amber.

    Pollock will likely make his Bully Wee debut against Elgin City at Broadwood this evening.

    Speaking to motherwellfc.co.uk, he said, “I am out for a month and the main aim is to try and play some competitive first-team football.

    “I’ve heard a lot of good things about Clyde as a club and the manager Jim Duffy so I am looking forward to getting started.”

    Pollock joins fellow youngsters Gary Smith (Stenhousemuir), Ross McKinnon (Alloa Athletic) and Jordan Halsman (Albion Rovers) who are already on loan.

    McLean’s in charge of Hibs clash

    Referee for Wednesday’s Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash with Hibernian at Fir Park will be Steven McLean.

    McLean, brother of former ‘Well defender Brian, will be handling his third ‘Well game of the current campaign having previously taking charge of the league opener against Inverness Caley back in July and the 3-1 win over Dundee United in September.

    The 30-year old will be a familiar face to ‘Well fans having overseen three matches during the 2010/11 campaign too.

    His first was his Motherwell ‘debut’ – a 2-1 win over Saturday’s opponents United at Fir Park one year ago. A couple of own goals gave The Steelmen the points despite David Goodwillie slamming home a penalty after McLean had adjudged skipper Stephen Craigan to have handled inside the area.

    His next was at Pittodrie when Motherwell took on Aberdeen for the first time since Craig Brown’s departure. A scintillating display from Stuart McCall’s men gave the Steelmen all three points after coming from behind to win 2-1. It was a difficult game for McLean to handle but, despite howls of protest from the home stands, the young official had an excellent evening and showed composure in the face of difficult circumstances.

    Finally, he was the man in the middle for another clash against Aberdeen, this time at Fir Park. A game more remembered for things that happened off the park after the final whistle; on the park the Steelmen won 2-1 again thanks to goals from Chris Humphrey and Shaun Hutchinson.

    McLean began his refereeing career back in 1997, aged just 16, but had to wait six years before being promoted to the SFA Senior List. It took him a further four years (June 2007) to get promoted to a Category 1 where he has spent the last three years handling SFL and ALBA Challenge Cup games as well as gaining experience as a fourth official at SPL matches.

    He eventually made his bow in Scotland’s top league when he took charge of Aberdeen’s 1-0 away win at McDiarmid Park over two years ago.  A late Darren Mackie goal was enough to give the Dons all three points and McLean had a good afternoon, booking five players in a competitive contest.

    McLean has been exceptionally busy this season too – handling 13 SPL games. The most recent was Celtic’s controversial 1-0 win over Inverness CT a week or so ago. The whistler sent two players off during the match with the league-leaders Daniel Majstorovic having his card rescinded following an appeal.

    He also had the distinction of being the man in charge of Sweden’s 5-0 demolition of San Marino in the Euro 2012 qualifier.

    McLean will be ably assisted by Martin Cryans and John Gilmour with Des Roache on fourth official duties.
