    Robinson: ‘It’s just one game’

    Stephen Robinson insists his side won’t be too disheartened after suffering a 3-0 defeat at Easter Road.

    The Northern Irishman believes that, despite the scoreline, there were positives to take from the league opener against Hibernian.

    “It’s one game,” he said. “One game against a team expected to be right up there this season. We can take positives out of it but there’s also plenty of things to work on.

    “I don’t look for excuses and I know we’ll take the positives from today’s game, but it’s never easy coming to Easter Road, especially with only two fit defenders able to start the game.

    Motherwell suffer defeat in season opener

    Motherwell suffer defeat in season opener

    Motherwell started their Ladbrokes Premiership campaign with a resounding 3-0 defeat away at Hibernian.

    Stevie Mallan, Oli Shaw and Martin Boyle grabbed the goals as the capital club confidently picked up their first three points.

    Stephen Robinson made three changes from the side that started the comeback Betfred Cup win at Clyde. Liam Donnelly, Aaron Taylor-Sinclair and Liam Grimshaw came into the team, replacing Elliott Frear, the suspended Allan Campbell and the departed Cédric Kipré.

    A slow start to the first half saw Hibs troubling down the flanks and Motherwell looking to take an opportunity on the counter, but creative play was lacking for the most part.

    When the chance was finally presented to the hosts, they capitalised on it.

    Peter Hartley was adjudged to have handled a shot fired at his hands on the edge of the area, giving Mallan the chance to shoot from 20 yards.

    Curving the ball around the right of the wall, his placed effort found the bottom corner of the net to put Hibs in front with 29 minutes on the clock.

    The game continue to ebb and flow before Hibs grabbed their second as the interval approached. Shaw nipped round the back to get on the end of McGinn’s pass, and he prodded past Carson at the post to double the advantage.

    Yet it was the Steelmen who would have the final chance of the first half. Cadden worked himself space on the right and flashed an effort across goal, but the outstretched Bogdan steered the ball out of the path of the onrushing Main.

    The visitors rang the changes at the interval as they sought a way back into the match. Bigirimana and Frear replaced Grimshaw and Taylor-Sinclair, as Robinson changed his side’s shape to try and get a foothold in the game.

    Hibs started the second period with the same intent, and they would put the game out of sight just six minutes after the restart.

    Boyle had time and space to drive at Hartley outside the area and, with the defender backing off, picked his spot to rattle the ball past Carson.

    The hosts introduced international players Slivka and Maclaren as the game wore on, with Motherwell prevented in the main from carving out real scoring chances.

    Substitute Danny Johnson was to be handed a glorious one with 17 minutes remaining. Latching onto a loose ball he bore down on goalkeeper Bogdan and placed it past him, but the ball bounced off the post.

    With the ball arriving back at Johnson he again beat Bogdan as he twisted back inside and went for goal, but he was denied again by the lunging Ambrose.

    The summer signing continued to cause trouble. Minutes later he worked himself room to shoot on the edge of the area, but dragged his shot past the right post. Then again soon after he burst into the box but could only poke his effort into the chest of Bogdan as Hibs tired.

    It would be Johnson who would eventually get the ball in the net for Motherwell. Persevering as the ball bounced about in the box, he lashed the ball home at the third attempt but was adjudged to have fouled in the buildup.

    Get a free replacement on Kipré printed tops

    Following the departure of Cédric Kipré to Wigan Athletic, we are offering supporters who have had his name and number printed on their new 2018/19 replica kits a free replacement top and printing.

    What’s more, we will also get Cédric to autograph your old shirt and have it returned to you, as a thank you from both the club and the player.

    So if you’ve purchased a 2018/19 Kipré jersey, either home or away, and would like to take up the offer, simply pop up to the ‘Well Shop when you can.

    Purchases must have been made on or before Friday, 3 August 2018. Replacements are subject to availability.

    Cédric will sign the jerseys on a visit to the club in the coming weeks and we will arrange a date for your old jersey to be collected.

    “Staff at the ‘Well Shop always make a point of informing fans who are having printing added to the replica kits that whilst the transfer window remains open, there is a risk a player may move on,” chief executive Alan Burrows explained.

    “Although it’s not something we will always be able to do, we think it’s only right to look after those who have already paid their cash so shortly before Cédric left for Wigan.

    “Given the shirts have only just gone on sale in the last few weeks, particularly with our new claret and amber lettering, we think it’s important we offer this change and also a chance to get their old shirt signed.”

    Need to Know: A look at Hibs’ threats

    Need to Know: A look at Hibs’ threats

    Hibernian are the first opponents for Motherwell in the 2018/19 Ladbrokes Premiership.

    Neil Lennon’s men lie in wait at Easter Road with both teams having played four competitive games already in cup and European action this campaign.

    Making refinements

    Neil Lennon has spent the summer making tweaks to his settled squad. The departures of Scott Allan and Dylan McGeouch had the potential to have an impact, but the recruitment of Stevie Mallan has gone some way towards reducing that deficit.

    Florian Kamberi, having netted nine goals in 14 appearances on loan from Grasshoppers, was signed on a permanent basis and has continued his form, scoring four in four in the Europa League qualifiers so far.

    Adam Bogdan has also been brought in from Liverpool to add options in the goalkeeping position and has established himself as number one in the matches so far.

    Hibs in scoring form

    Four games, 16 goals. That’s Hibernian’s record so far in the 2018/19 campaign season. Having scored 12 over two games against NSI Runavik in the first qualifying round of the Europa League, they then grabbed another three at home to Asteras Tripolis. Things calmed down in their most recent game, when they drew 1-1 away in Greece.

    Home comforts

    Easter Road has become something of a fortress for the Hibees of late.

    Of their last 15 competitive games on home turf, they have won 11, drawn three and lost just once. In that time, they’ve netted 38 and conceded 20.
