Stuart McCall was pleased with aspects of today’s friendly with Fulham despite ‘Well’s 0-2 defeat at Fir Park.
The Cottagers merited their victory but in their first ‘official’ pre-season fixture of the campaign, there was enough positives to take from the game.
‘Well enjoyed spells of good possession, looked tidy on the ball and created several decent half-chances throughout.
Fulham, to their credit, created a little more in front of goal and worked Twardzik more to run out deserved winners.
However, the 40-times capped for Scotland midfielder was satisfied with the match ahead of Thursday’s Europa League 2nd Qualifying Round clash with Icelanders Stjarnan.

Speaking to MFC TV, he said: “I enjoyed large spells of the game but we knew it would be a stern test. It’s disappointing to lose a set-piece goal but, otherwise, we played some really nice football and got into some good areas.
“The bigger picture is that it’s another 90 minutes under the belts which we needed prior to Thursday’s game.
