    Tait: We’ve returned refreshed

    Richard Tait believes Motherwell have rediscovered their winning mentality after a refreshing winter break.

    Speaking to the broadcast press, the defender said that confidence is firmly back in the dressing room ahead of their second trip to Edinburgh in the space of five days.

    And with Neil Lennon’s Hibs side up next, Tait expects a tough fixture, but it is one he is relishing.

    [pullquote]Hibs are a very good team. They’ve got a lot of pace and players who can make things happen and I enjoy going there and playing against them.[/pullquote]

    “Getting a point in the last minute against Hearts is something we can take confidence from,” the 27-year-old said. “The boys kept going all the way until the end so I think we got what we deserved.

    “The break did us some good. We went away and came back refreshed.

    “I think playing Hamilton straight away not only allowed us to get back from that loss at the end of the year, but allowed us to get our winning mentality back.”

    Robinson: We face Hibs with confidence

    Stephen Robinson says his side go in to Wednesday night’s clash against Hibs brimming with confidence.

    The Steelmen face a second trip to Edinburgh in the space of five days following Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Hearts, and the manager is remaining focused on football ahead of the January transfer window closing.

    Looking ahead to the Ladbrokes Premiership clash, Robinson said: “We’ve won two out of three and got a brilliant draw away to Hearts, and deservedly so. So there’s a real good atmosphere and we have another tough game against Hibs.

    [pullquote]But we go in to it confident. It leads us in to three home games in the league and offers us a chance to build on what we’ve already done.”[/pullquote]

    With the transfer deadline fast approaching, the Northern Irishman also addressed Celtic’s interest in goalkeeper Trevor Carson.

    “In my opinion Trevor Carson is the best goalkeeper in the league,” the ‘Well boss said.

    “We’ve rightly valued him at a price. We have to stand strong until his valuation is met. Until then, he’s very much our player.

    “It’s strange to put games on deadline day and it’s a tough one for us, but my focus has to be on Hibs and we have to be focused on the game, but it’s football and these things happen.”

    Craigan: Relieved to be back

    Under 20s manager Stephen Craigan was relieved to see his side finally play competitive football, after nearly two months without a game.

    And he was even happier with the hard-working, determined performance from his side during their 2-1 win over Aberdeen.

    Speaking to MFC TV at full-time at Glebe Park, Craigan reflected on an impressive three points in his sides first game of 2018.

    [pullquote]When it went to 1-1 I thought, do we have the guts and the desire and the determination to go and win the game? And we did.[/pullquote]

    “First and foremost, I think the result will stand out, but I also think the performance does too,” the Northern Irishman said.

    “It’s been almost two months since our last competitive game on December 5th, so it’s been a frustrating two months for the players.”

    He added: “To put that effort in to the game for 90-minutes, the fitness levels that requires, asks even more questions of them, but I’m really pleased with the performance and the grit and determination.”

    Aberdeen U20s 1 – 2 Motherwell U20s

    Motherwell returned to Development League action with a 2-1 win over Aberdeen, after nearly two months without a game.

    Snow and ice led to countless postponements for Stephen Craigan’s youngsters over December and January, and following an early morning pitch inspection, the clash at Glebe Park was given the go ahead.

    First team midfielder Ross MacLean was included in the starting line-up, with forwards Alfie Agyeman, Jamie Semple and James Scott all included from the start. Shea Gordon, returning from a long injury lay-off, made the bench.

    Agyeman and Semple, working tirelessly up front, nearly combined to give the Steelmen a perfect start in Brechin. The former closed down Dons stopper Archie Mair, who sliced the ball straight to Semple, whose attempted finish landed narrowly over the crossbar.

    In a rather quiet first half, Craigan’s side nearly took the lead in style just before the break. Barry Maguire linked up Davie Turnbull in the middle of the park, who slid in James Scott with a reverse pass on the left side of the box, but his shot was dragged wide of the mark.

    But it didn’t take long in the second half for the travelling Steelmen to take the lead. After winning the ball in the middle of the park, ‘Well broke down the left flank. Scott, racing back on to the park following an injury, burst through and slotted beyond the keeper.

    Just four minutes later, Aberdeen were level. Jordan Armstrong’s foul on the edge of the area led to a free kick in a decent position. A low, driven effort was palmed in to the path of Sam Roscoe, who finished high past PJ Morrison to equalise.

    Craigan didn’t hesitate to change things up, introducing Gordon in place of Semple with just under 25 minutes remaining.

    And it was the Northern Ireland under-21 international who nearly provided the leveller with a terrific cross from a clever free kick.

    Turnbull slipped a neat reverse ball around the Dons wall for Gordon to stand up to the back post. Hastie turned a header goal ward but it crashed off the crossbar.

    Play stayed alive though and MacLean’s cross back in to the box was headed beyond Mair by Gordon late on to grab all three points for the Steelmen.

    Robinson: Point was thoroughly deserved

    Stephen Robinson felt Motherwell’s late point gained away to Hearts was “thoroughly deserved”.

    A tightly fought encounter in the capital went to the death with the hosts looking to have claimed all three points.

    But Curtis Main stooped with the very last action of the game to send the team back home with the draw.

    [pullquote]I think we thoroughly deserved the point and if anything I’m a bit disappointed we didn’t get all three.[/pullquote]

    “If you look at the chances we had here at Tynecastle, we go through one-on-one through Craig Tanner and it was probably a penalt,” Robinson said, “Curtis Main goes through one-on-one too and Deimatas misses a header.

    “We’ve played three strikers at home and it’s gone well for us but we changed it a bit today.

    “Craig’s had a niggling knee injury and that would’ve been his third start in a week. We knew that he might not get the full game, but he came on and changed things.”
