    Women claim SWPL2 title

    Motherwell are SWPL2 champions after defeating Edinburgh University Hutchison Vale 5-1 at Peffermill.

    The women of steel sealed promotion to the top flight of Scottish women’s football with five games of the season remaining.

    Victory over Hutchison Vale was rarely in doubt after from early in an encounter played out in driving rain.

    Lauryn Reside replaced Megan Burns in the only change to the ‘Well starting team from last week’s victory over Kilmarnock and she blasted home a wonderful shot from range to put the visitors ahead after only two minutes.

    Claire Johnstone in the Motherwell goal made a superb stop to keep the scores level as Hutchison Vale looked for a way back into the game. But they would find themselves 2-0 down on 17 minutes when Hayley Cunningham’s driving running ended with a shot that was parried only as far as Sammy Hare who tapped home from close range.

    The hosts would reduce the deficit just before the half hour mark, when Nichola Sturrock’s free-kick was nodded on by Anna Hume and Lucy Brown calmly slotted the ball home.

    Four minutes later it took another excellent stop by Johnstone to deny Sturrock an equaliser, but it would be Motherwell who regained their foothold on the match with a third goal.

    Kerry Montgomery’s free kick caught the home defence cold and Cunningham slid the ball across the face of goal for Hare to slot the ball into the net.

    Reside had a chance to add to her tally early in the second half before Motherwell made it 4-1. Cunningham again was the provider as she found Hare, who spun and unleashed a low drive beyond Charlotte Parker-Smith to complete her hat-trick.

    Hare is enjoying a remarkable scoring run and has netted eight times in the last three games, taking her tally to 17 for the campaign.

    There were chances for Kirsty McLaughlin and Caitlin Russell as the match drew to a close, before Cunningham completed a superb showing by converting Kaitlyn Canavan’s cut-back.

    The final whistle brought scenes of delight among the players and staff, who have all played a huge part in an incredible season.

    It was another magnificent display from ‘Well who have led the way in title race from a very early stage, racking up 14 wins and a draw in their last 15 matches and scoring 68 goals in the process.

    Promotion to the SWPL presents the opportunity to come up against the top sides in Scotland including Glasgow City, Hibernian and Celtic.

    Players react to Rangers draw

    Goal scorers Peter Hartley, Carl McHugh and Danny Johnson were delighted to claim a point against Rangers at Fir Park.

    The hosts grabbed a last-minute equaliser and were more than a match for their opponents as they lifted themselves off the foot of the Ladbrokes Premiership.

    Manager delighted with battling point

    Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson was full of praise for his side and felt they could have won the match as they drew 3-3 with Rangers.

    The Steelmen fought hard against a strong Ibrox side and took a share of the spoils through Peter Hartley’s last-minute equaliser.

    An injury time equaliser from captain Peter Hartley earned Motherwell their first point in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

    However, after twice taking the lead in the first half through Danny Johnson and Carl McHugh and pressing Rangers for most of the second half Stephen Robinson’s men might claim they deserved all three points.

    In a pulsating first half, Steven Gerrard’s new look Gers twice came from behind with a double from Kyle Lafferty and Ovie Ejaria giving them a half time lead.

    Allan Campbell and Chris Cadden returned to the midfield as ‘Well chased their first league points off the season.

    Following his winner at Livingston last week, Danny Johnson kept his place alongside Curtis Main in the home attack. And it took the former Gateshead striker less than three minutes to open his league account.

    Cadden’s long ball had Connor Goldson retreating and when the centre back slipped, Johnson latched on to the bouncing ball to calmly lob it over the advancing Allan McGregor for the perfect start.

    Two minutes later it was almost a perfect start for Lafferty but his downward header was saved low in front of his right hand post by Trevor Carson.

    Another great cross from Cadden whizzed across the six yard box with Andy Rose just failing to make contact. Minutes later Main’s glancing header sent Johnson in behind and having held off Goldson just failed to chip the ball over McGregor.

    With ‘Well looking comfortable, Rangers equalised with a fortunate strike after 15 minutes. Borna Barisic’s cross was headed out of the box and although Lafferty’s drive might have been on target, it posed no real problem for Carson until a wicked deflection off Richard Tait sent the ball away from the ‘keeper and into the corner.

    Amazingly it took the Fir Park men only two minutes to restore their lead. Gael Bigirimana, whose delivery from set pieces threatened throughout the game, whipped in terrific free kick. Carl McHugh at the corner of the six yard box then confidently steered his header across the keeper and into the far corner of the net to make it 2-1.

    The game was hectic and end to for the next 20 minutes until Rangers and Lafferty produced another equaliser. James Tavernier sent over a tempting cross but the ex Hearts striker leapt unchallenged eight yards from goal to bury a header past Carson.

    Three minutes from the end of a fast and entertaining half, the Ibrox side nicked another goal to take the lead. From Motherwell’s corner play raced to the other end where Ejaria collected the ball at the edge of the box. His curling shot appeared to bring out a great save from Carson but the ball spun from his left hand before creeping inside his right hand post.

    Motherwell’s response to that set back was to press from the restart and dominate large spells of the second half. After early attempts from Johnson and Tait were blocked inside the six yard box the pressure on the visitor’s goal was incessant – especially after the introduction of Conor Sammon and Elliot Frear for the final 15 minutes.

    A succession of corners from Bigirimana kept the pressure on the Rangers’ goal.

    Nine minutes from time Hartley climbed high to meet a corner only to power his header narrrowly over the bar. As the clock ticked towards the final minutes another corner found Main and his header back across goal agonisingly raced a couple of inches outside the far post.

    As three minutes additional time was signalled ‘Well continued to push for an equaliser and it duly arrived in the final minute. With Rangers desperately defending, yet another Bigirimana corner found Hartley a couple of yards out and he forced the ball over a crowded goal line for a richly deserved equaliser.

    Loan watch: Hastie helps earn a point

    Three of Motherwell’s four young loanees were action for their respective teams this weekend.

    Jake Hastie and his Alloa teammates made the long journey north to take on Inverness Caledonian Thistle at the Caledonian Stadium.

    Inverness took a first-half lead through Brad Mckay, only for captain Andy Graham to level before the interval. However, shortly after the break, Wasps defender Zdravko Karadachki received his marching orders for a foul inside the box. Shaun Welsh made it 2-1 from 12 yards.

    Caley had a golden opportunity to put the contest to bed with the game’s second spot kick, only for Coll Donaldson to hit the bar and there would be a late sting in the tail as Hastie would earn the third penalty of the match, brought down inside the area by Shaun Rooney with just four minutes left.

    Iain Flannigan kept his nerve, slotting past Mark Ridgers to earn the visitors a very good point in the Highland capital.

    Ross MacLean was named in the starting team for Morton’s fixture against Ross County at Cappielow.

    Ex ‘Well man Iain Vigurs released Don Cowie to score and put the Staggies ahead just before the hour, but a cracker from Michael Tidser levelled things for ‘Ton before another former Steelman, Bob McHugh, netted the winner with 12 minutes left on the clock.

    Neil McLaughlin, fresh from his goal for Stephen Craigan’s reserves against Hearts in midweek, started for Stirling Albion against Peterhead at Forthbank.

    The youngster was withdrawn shortly after the hour, replaced by former Fir Park front man Darren Smith, however it didn’t stop the Binos slipping to a 2-0 defeat, courtesy of goals from Jamie Stevenson and Rory McAllister.

    Shea Gordon missed out on Partick Thistle’s visit to Tannadice. The Northern Ireland youth international picked up an injury in last weekend’s Betfred Cup defeat to Celtic and wasn’t available for the match that eventually ended 3-1 to the Terrors, with goals coming from Craig Curran and a Paul Watson double.

    Chris Erskine grabbed a late consolation for the Jags in an otherwise disappointing afternoon.

    Need to Know: Assessing Rangers

    The Steelmen return to Premiership action after securing a quarter-final spot in the Betfred Cup last weekend.

    But in Steven Gerrard’s Rangers side, ‘Well face a tough encounter against a side who look buoyed by the appointment of their new boss.

    More than a name

    It may be Gerrard’s first job in management, but the Englishman looks at home in the dugout already.

    He may be one of the biggest names in recent Scottish football history, but the Gers boss is transitioning seamlessly in to his latest role in the game.

    If there were any doubters, there can be few now, with Rangers enjoying one of the strongest starts they’ve had to a season in a number of years.

    Speaking of that solid start…

    It has been well documented now that Rangers have yet to fall behind in a game since Gerrard took over this summer.

    In their opening 10 games, the Gers have managed an impressive six clean sheets and have only conceded four goals.

    Last term, the top scoring side in the league struggled at the back, conceding the most goals of the top seven sides in the table. That problem looks to be resolved.

    They’re sharp up top too

    Alfredo Morelos has started the 2018/19 campaign in scintillating form, bagging six goals already.

    He’s hit a third of his tally of 18 from last season, and he could well smash that total this term.

    Add to the mix new signing Kyle Lafferty, and Sunday’s opponents look threatening at the top end of the pitch.

    Balancing a busy schedule

    It may be August, but Rangers are juggling a busy schedule in 2018/19, and that could pose a few problems.

    With one eye on their midweek trip to Russia, and the pending clash with fierce rivals Celtic looming large next weekend, Gerrard may well be forced to rotate his players to maintain fitness levels.

    Ex-Steelman Jamie Murphy is out through injury, and will inevitably be a loss for Sunday’s visitors to Fir Park.
