    Cadden proud to hit 100-game mark

    Chris Cadden’s dream as a youngster was to be able to make just one appearance in a Motherwell shirt at Fir Park.

    His start against Dundee in the William Hill Scottish Cup last weekend took the player to the 100-game milestone, an achievement he’s rightly proud of.

    “It was a brilliant feeling,” the 21-year-old said of making the milestone. “To play 100 games is a brilliant achievement for me. It was a really proud day for me and my family.

    “When I came in, I took each game as it came. The gaffer has trusted me, which I’ve appreciated.

    [pullquote]Both Mark McGhee and Stephen Robinson have trusted me and hopefully I’ve repaid that trust.”[/pullquote]

    Across his 100 games, Cadden has seen it all. From scrapping against relegation at the wrong end of the table, to reaching the Betfred Cup final.

    The team’s form took a minor dip after that appearance at Hampden Park but the squad have returned energised from the winter break, and a bonding trip to Spain.

    “At Motherwell, we are going to have peaks and troughs,” he said. “It’s not always going to be plain sailing or going for second in the league all the time.

    “We are going to have that wee dip. But we’ve come back from it. Having the winter break, the trip to Tenerife done us the world of good we’ve come back strong.”

    Robinson: Another important game

    Stephen Robinson believes Saturday’s clash with Kilmarnock is a big game for a number of reasons.

    The ‘Well boss admits that three points could not only stretch the club away from any potential relegation worries, but could present the ‘Well with real top six aspirations.

    In Kilmarnock though, Robinson’s side come up against tough opposition.

    “I was at Kilmarnock’s game against Dundee and it was a good game, an exciting game and Killie have been on a fantastic run,” the manager said.

    [pullquote]But so have we. We’ve won four, drawn two and lost just once since the break, so we’ve been quietly doing it whilst other sides have maybe got plaudits.[/pullquote]

    “That’s fine though,” he added. “We did the same in the first half of the season and we don’t mind doing that – picking up results and people not making too much of it.”

    With Motherwell and Kilmarnock level on points and with the same goal difference, the Steelmen only find themselves ahead of Killie due to goals scored.

    And the manager is aware that Saturday is a big match.

    “My first priority is to stay in the division,” the Northern Irishman said. “So this is the potential of another three points and making sure that’s a reality.

    [pullquote]Obviously we can look up the way too because it will be a big game in the battle for the top six and keeping our run going.[/pullquote]

    “We’re looking forward to it, Killie are on a good run and Steve Clarke’s done a good job there, a really, really good job.”

    The manager addressed team news ahead of the Premiership encounter, revealing the extent of Peter Hartley’s injury lay-off.

    He said: “Peter won’t require surgery but he will be out for a minimum of two months. He has a problem with his foot that was rather innocuous when he was jogging in training.”

    Ladies kick off with a win at Killie

    Motherwell Ladies kicked off the season with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.

    The women of steel, under the guidance of Eddie Wolecki Black for the first time in a competitive fixture, showed their mettle by scoring the winning goal in the dying minutes of the match.

    ‘Well had got themselves ahead courtesy of an own goal. A delightful free kick from Emma Black was headed into her own net by the unfortunate Kilmarnock defender, under heavy pressure from Sammy Hare.

    The claret and amber women had the ball in the net again soon after, only for the assistant’s flag to chalk it off for offside.

    Both teams had half chances, but the first half would end with the visitors narrowly ahead at a freezing cold Rugby Park.

    Former Scotland striker Suzanne Mulvey was proving a handful for the home defenders and she brought about an excellent save from keeper Morgan Hunter, turning a low strike around the left-hand post for a corner.

    Northern Ireland International Kerry Montgomery went close again soon after, but was again denied by Hunter who was having an excellent afternoon in the Killie goal.

    With those chances gone, the inevitable happened when Kilmarnock got themselves on level terms. Sara Paterson sending a free kick into the back of the net with just 18 minutes left to play.

    And it looked as if it was going to stay that way until, with just minutes left on the clock, Hayley Cunningham’s free kick hit a body en route and ended up past Hunter and in the net, securing all three points and a win in the first game of the new Motherwell era.

    Players react to cup win over Dundee

    Goalscorers Curtis Main and Craig Tanner, along with debutant David Turnbull, spoke after the 2-0 victory over Dundee in the Scottish Cup.

    Curtis Main: “It was a tough game, especially in the first half, but obviously we got our noses in front and from then on I think we were comfortable.”

    Craig Tanner: “Three goals in three appearances against Dundee so if I could play them every week I’d be a happy man. But no, this is my highest goal scoring season which is great.

    “The main thing is that we’re in the next round though and we’re all delighted.”

    David Turnbull: “I’m just buzzing to get on and for us to get the win. I’m thankful to the gaffer for giving me a chance to get my first appearance.”
