    Craigan: We must be ruthless

    Under-20s boss Stephen Craigan has called for his players to be “ruthless” after tonight’s 1-1 draw with Dundee.

    The youngsters failed to capitalise on a dominant performance at Dens Park and the home side bagged an equaliser against the run of play to grab a draw.

    Speaking to MFC TV at full-time, the Northern Irishman reflected on a positive performance and a frustrating result.

    [pullquote]I patted them on the back but I wanted them to be ruthless in the second half. I wanted them to go out and take the game away from Dundee.[/pullquote]

    “We stopped doing what we were doing in the first half and we thought the game became too easy.” Craigan said.

    “We started taking extra touches, we started playing as individuals because there were a couple of opportunities when players broke forward and there was other players in better positions to pick them off to get shots off.”

    He added: “You always know when you’re one up that you need a second goal and that was the message at half time: yes, I patted them on the back but I wanted them to be ruthless in the second half. I wanted them to go out and take the game away from Dundee.”

    Dundee U20s 1 – 1 Motherwell U20s

    Motherwell under-20s were punished for wasted opportunities as the youngsters drew for the second game running in the Development League.

    A brilliant goal from Ross MacLean was cancelled out by Jesse Curran’s second half strike on a chilly evening at Dens Park. 

    Stephen Craigan named a young starting eleven for his sides trip to Dens Park, with Russell Griffiths being called upon in goals.

    And following a blunt performance against St Johnstone, the under-20s boss was rewarded with a fine response from his team, who dominated a Dundee side featuring senior players Scott Bain, Kostadin Gadzhalov and Scott Allan.

    The only criticism could be focused on the Steelmen’s cutting edge, with as many as five or six good opportunities wasted from inside the box in the first half alone, as well as a few long range efforts fizzing narrowly over the home sides crossbar.

    The breakthrough was worth the wait though, as Ross MacLean put the finishing touch on a terrific ‘Well move on the half-hour mark.

    Working the ball around the edge of the Dee box, the youngsters found the cutting edge required when Davie Turnbull scooped the ball over the entire Dundee back-line for MacLean to thunder a volley in to the top-corner.

    One of the hosts only clear cut chances fell just moments after falling behind though, when a deep ball was put on a plate for Henvey, but the striker, who looked to anticipate a touch from Luke Watt, miscued his effort wide of the mark from just a few yards.

    The second half started largely similar to the first, and that crucial, cutting-edge remained absent from the under-20s who really should have doubled their lead in the 52nd minute.

    MacLean struck a low effort on target but it was cleared off the line before Watt weaved his way in to the area but could only prod the ball narrowly past the far post.

    And, following 70 minutes of missing golden opportunities, Dundee punished the visitors with a leveller in the 72nd minute.

    Curran, bursting forward from right back, gathered the ball in the ‘Well box before finishing past Griffiths in to the far corner.

    The Steelmen looked to hit back when Watt, bursting forward from defence, nearly capped a fine run with a neat finish back across the face of goal, but it trickled narrowly wide of the far post.

    The home side went close in the final few minutes in what would have been severe punishment for the young ‘Well side, but the two sides left Dens with a point apiece.

    Under 20s face Dundee

    Stephen Craigan’s Under 20s return to Development League action on Monday night, looking to return to form following a goalless draw with St Johnstone.

    The youngsters have enjoyed a fine start to the season, having only failed to pick up three points on three occasions in the league this term.

    However, a rather blunt performance against the Saints left Craigan calling for more from his youngsters.

    Dundee, who slipped from the summit of the table following a 3-1 defeat against Partick Thistle, will be keen to bounce back tomorrow night.

    The two sides, who have only lost a combined three games this season, are closely matched, with goal difference the only factor separating the Steelmen in second from Dundee in third.

    The fixture takes place at Dens Park on Monday night and kicks off at 6pm.

    If you can’t make it, you can follow all the action on the official Motherwell FC twitter, with reaction and highlights exclusively on MFC TV’s official YouTube channel.

    Lasley: We didn’t deal with County threat

    Keith Lasley admitted that threats weren’t dealt with as the Steelmen fell short in the Highlands this afternoon.

    Goals from Ryan Bowman and Louis Moult reduced the gap to one but it wasn’t enough as the Fir Parkers suffered a second successive defeat.

    Lasley, who was without ‘Well boss Stephen Robinson in the dug out, reflected on a frustrating afternoon in Dingwall.

    [pullquote]We knew that threat and we didn’t deal with it, found ourselves 3-0 down at the break and if you do that anywhere in this division, it’s going to be a tough afternoon.[/pullquote]

    He said: “It was disappointing and I thought we could have nicked a point at the end and probably should have done in terms of the chances we had near the end.

    “We just gave ourselves too much to do and set-plays played a massive part in that. It’s something that we’ve been very good at up until this point and today we just weren’t quite there.”

    He added: “We knew that threat and we didn’t deal with it, found ourselves 3-0 down at the break and if you do that anywhere in this division, it’s going to be a tough afternoon.”
