    TV: McCall looks ahead to Killie

    Stuart McCall insists his side will only be focused on events at Rugby Park and not what the outcome might mean for Sunday’s Old Firm clash.

    A huge amount of media attention in the build-up to this weekend has been on the possibility of Celtic having the opportunity to win the league at Ibrox should ‘Well fail to take all three points at Rugby Park.

    It’s not something McCall has given much thought; insisting his only focus is winning the match for Motherwell and further solidifying the Steelmen’s place at the top end of the table.

    [pullquote]I don’t think any Motherwell supporter gives a monkey’s about what is happening on Sunday so we’ve got to go down there and put in a performance that will hopefully win us the three points.”[/pullquote]

    He said: “I don’t think any Motherwell supporter gives a monkey’s about what is happening on Sunday so we’ve got to go down there and put in a performance that will hopefully win us the three points.

    “Both games against Killie have been very tight. The last time we were at Rugby Park it was a really good game, they had a lot of possession but both goalkeepers on the day were outstanding.

    “Likewise with the game here at Fir Park, Kilmarnock came and played an open brand of football and we matched them, going toe to toe with the only surprise being it ended 0-0 and again that came down to the quality of the goalkeepers.”

    TV: Youths claim positive point

    Keiran McGachie scored late on for the second match running to claim a point for the Steelmen in a 2-2 draw with title-chasing Hearts.

    The big striker was on target last Friday when the youths again came from behind to take all three points against Dundee United and he was at it again today.

    Hearts had earlier taken the lead when Kevin McHattie smashed his side in front after a well-worked free-kick. The defender, who has played in Hearts’ first-team, collected after a neat one-two and finished with his left foot low across Ross Stewart after just thirteen minutes.

    It stayed that way until the 54th minute when the Steelmen drew level and it was a super solo goal from Josh Watt. The winger collected on the half-way line and, after beating three players, struck a low shot which squirmed past the goalkeeper at the near post with the aid of a slight deflection.

    Both teams traded further chances but it was the home side, desperate for a win to cement their place at the top of the table, who got their noses back in front. Capitalising on a quickly taken free-kick, the home side broke on the counter and when the ball was eventually slid across the box, the trialist midfielder was unmarked to slot home from close range.

    It looked as if the hosts were going to hold out for the victory but former Jambo McGachie would prove to be a thorn in the side of his boyhood heroes. A crude trip on substitute Craig Moore allowed Motherwell the chance to flood the box from a dead ball. Euan Murray rose well at the back post to meet Stevie Hetherington looping ball and when he nodded it back across goal, McGachie was there to head home.

    That goal came on the 88th minute yet, incredibly, a further seven minutes passed before the referee blew for full-time. Before he did, Euan Murray, Lee Erwin and McGachie all had half-chances to nick it but couldn’t and the match ended all square.

    Motherwell: Stewart, Devlin, Cummins, E. Murray, Francis-Angol, Asghar, Hetherington, Mboa Mekongo (MacDonald – 70mins), Watt (Moore –  75mins), Erwin, McGachie

    Subs Not Used: R. Murray, Lynch, Brownlie, Green, Leitch
