    Ryan Bowman fired up for trip to Pittodrie

    After making his return from injury, Ryan Bowman is fired up and ready for a trip to take on Aberdeen.

    The striker, who has made a number of appearances off the bench in recent weeks, is biding his time. But as a group, he believes the Steelmen can take on any team in the country.

    “As players, we know that if we’re all on it, we can match anyone in this league,” he said.

    “We know what to expect from Aberdeen, it’ll be a tough game but one we’re ready for.”

    Need to Know: A look at Aberdeen

    Having finished second in the Ladbrokes Premiership for the past four seasons, Motherwell face difficult opponents in Aberdeen on Saturday.

    We take a look at Derek McInnes’ side ahead of the first meeting between the two sides this season.

    Hard to beat

    Despite sitting eighth in the league, the Reds have only suffered two defeats in all competitions this season.

    That includes a double header against Premier League side Burnley, who left Pittodrie with a 1-1 draw before registering the same score line at Turf Moor. Sean Dyche’s men managed to win in extra time though, with the game ending 4-2 on aggregate to the English side.

    Since then, only Kilmarnock have got the better of the Dons, when they won 2-0 at Pittodrie earlier this month.

    Tricky Pittodrie

    The Reds have a strong record against the Steelmen on their own turf, suffering just one defeat in the last seven games against the ‘Well up north.

    That defeat came last season though, in the only game between the two at Pittodrie in 2017/18, when the Fir Park side put in a stunning display and won 2-0.

    Only Celtic, Rangers and Motherwell managed to leave Aberdeen with all three points last term.

    New faces

    Since the last meeting between the two sides at Hampden back in April, there have been a number of changes in personnel for Saturday’s opponents.

    Anthony O’Connor and Adam Rooney switched the Premiership for England’s League One and National League respectively, whilst Stephen Gleeson and Chris Forrester came the other way.

    James Wilson and Tommie Hoban were two interesting acquisitions for the Dons, having arrived on loan from Manchester United and Watford respectively.

    Scene Setter: ‘Well face Dons at Pittodrie

    Scene Setter: ‘Well face Dons at Pittodrie

    The first trip to Pittodrie since November 2017 awaits the Steelmen on Saturday, with a lot to play for at stake for both sides.

    Here, we set the scene of what is sure to be an interesting game in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

    Tough to call

    In the meetings between the two sides last term, Motherwell won three, keeping a clean in all three of those wins.

    Likewise, the Dons won twice and kept two clean sheets as they collected six points from the three league meetings.

    The Steelmen picked up three points, but knocked out the Reds in both the Betfred Cup and the Scottish Cup during two memorable cup runs.

    Points to prove

    Both sides find themselves towards the foot of the table, albeit after a mere five games.

    However, Stephen Robinson and Derek McInnes will be keen to steer their sides up the table after reaching such highs in 2017/18.

    Aberdeen finished second in the league, whilst the Steelmen reached two cup finals and finished seventh.

    Searching for momentum

    Saturday’s fixture isn’t only a case of getting points on the board, it also happens to be scheduled just a few days before the two sides go in to the biggest games of the 2018/19 campaign so far.

    Both the Steelmen and the Dons find themselves in Betfred Cup quarter final action in midweek, and with a spot in the last four up for grabs, both will be eager to go in to the fixtures on the back of a win.

    Stephen Robinson’s men face Hearts at Tynecastle on Wednesday night, while Derek McInnes’ side head to the capital to take on Hibernian on Tuesday.

    In Numbers: ‘Well travel to face Dons

    After a narrow defeat to Hearts at Fir Park, the Steelmen travel to Pittodrie for the first time in 2018 in search of a return to winning ways.

    Here is a look at the game in numbers.

    Two

    The slender points total separating Motherwell in ninth from Aberdeen in eighth.

    A win for the Steelmen would see them jump above the Dons in the table, whilst a win for Derek McInnes’ side could potentially see them move in to the top six.

    Both sides are also looking for their second wins of the Premiership campaign.

    Five

    Despite meeting on five occasions last season, there was never a game when both sides managed to score.

    In those games, Stephen Robinson’s men kept three clean sheets, scoring eight goals in total. The Dons, on the other hand, kept two cleans sheets and scored three.

    The last meeting at Pittodrie was in November 2017, when the Fir Parkers won 2-0.

    298

    Saturday’s fixture against last season’s runners-up in the Ladbrokes Premiership will be the 298th time the two sides have met.

    Should Stephen Robinson’s men pick up three points, it will be the 84th time the claret and amber side have put the reds to the sword.

    The Dons have had the upper hand over the years though, and are in search of their 125th win over ‘Well.

    Donald Jennow issues semi-final rallying call

    Donald Jennow issues semi-final rallying call

    Motherwell boss Donald Jennow has issued a rallying call to fans to turn out to support the women’s team in their forthcoming SSE Scottish Women’s Cup semi-final.

    After securing the SWPL 2 title, the women of steel booked the place in the last four with a battling 1-0 victory over St Johnstone on Sunday.

    Jennow is delighted that the players are reaping the rewards of all their efforts and believes they deserve all the attention that will come with a Scottish Cup semi final, which will take place on 14 October at Forthbank Stadium against Spartans.

    “From our perspective we went into the draw against a big three,” he said. “They are all SWPL 1 sides and all of them therefore would go into a tie against us as favourites.

    “The excitement comes in it being a Scottish Cup semi-final, it was well earned courtesy of a very hard fought quarter-final.

    “The more Motherwell fans we can get along there the better it will be for us. I know the reserves play a number of their games at Forthbank, so it’ll be a familiar ground for a number of ‘Well supporters.

    “My big thing is it’s the same badge on that shirt, it’s your club and we’re a part of it and trying to do the club proud.

    “If you can come along and give us a wee bit extra support then it would be more than appreciated.”

    Having wrapped up the title early and standing just one game away from a prestigious final, the head coach has rightly heaped praise on the achievements of his squad over the course of a magnificent season so far.

    “It’s a platform that the players deserve,” he said. “There’s a whole number of off-field issues that individuals have had to deal with this season

    “Football can be a different world at times, but there is a life away from the game and there are a number who haven’t had their troubles to seek.

    “I’m incredibly proud of the team of how they’ve handled and managed that, together with their dedication and commitment to playing for Motherwell.

    “Those two things together make them deserving of a place in the semi-final and the attention that comes with that.”

    Since taking over from Eddie Wolecki Black, Jennow has overseen two victories, a 9-0 win over Central Girls in the league, followed by the cup victory over St Johnstone.

    Currently 16 points ahead in the table, the team now have their sights set on finishing their league campaign on a high.

    Sunday will see the third visit to Aberdeen in as many months, the Dons will be reeling for a points deduction that almost certainly will see them relegated, but the ‘Well boss insists his team won’t drop their standards.

    “The first league game was so important,” he added. “We spoke about momentum and how easy it can be to lose that despite having worked so hard over the course of the season, so to win so well against Central was very pleasing.

    “We’re very keen to show the league the respect it deserves, we don’t want to end the season on a whimper and reduce the gap that we’ve worked incredibly hard to create.

    “I was also told the other day that there’s potentially some records there to be broken, so as competitors that obviously holds motivation for us too.

    “The plaudits always go to the players at the end of the day, they are the ones who win the games, score the goals and keep the clean sheets.

    “Wounded animals can often be the most dangerous and we know we’ll have to be at our best to win at Aberdeen.”
