    Scene Setter: ‘Well face Dons at Pittodrie

    Robinson frustrated with Dons display

    Stephen Robinson expressed his disappointment following his side’s 1-0 defeat against Aberdeen. 

    Despite hitting the woodwork and being denied a couple of penalty claims, the Fir Park outfit slumped to a disappointing loss at Pittodrie.

    “There’s not a whole lot in the game but we’ve only got ourselves to blame,” he said.

    “We started the game poorly and we were punished for it, made to chase the game from the off which turned a difficult task in to a very difficult one.”

    An early goal from James Wilson inflicted a 1-0 defeat at Pittodrie for the Steelmen.

    Following a narrow defeat against Hearts, Stephen Robinson’s men arrived in Aberdeen searching for a response ahead of Wednesday’s trip to Tynecastle in the Betfred Cup.

    However, despite being denied two significant penalty claims and going close through Carl McHugh and Chris Cadden, it was the Dons who picked up all three points.

    Stephen Robinson named three changes to his starting eleven, bringing Elliott Frear, Liam Donnelly and Conor Sammon in to his side.

    It took just six minutes for the hosts to open the scoring, and it was a well-worked goal. Niall McGinn, collecting the ball on the left hand side, threaded a neat pass through for Wilson, who finished neatly beyond Trevor Carson.

    During what was a scrappy encounter, McHugh showed a moment of class when he thundered a right footed effort on goal, only to see it rattle the crossbar.

    In the dying minutes, Joe Lewis produced a wonderful save to deny Chris Cadden’s low strike, before Tom Aldred was denied a stonewall penalty when his goalbound header was blocked by the upwards, outstretched hand of Andrew Considine.

    Lasley chats ahead of Aberdeen clash

    Keith Lasley is hoping to see another solid ‘Well display against Aberdeen on Saturday. 

    Stephen Robinson’s assistant believes the Fir Park outfit can call on their recent success against the Dons to inspire a similar showing at Pittodrie.

    However, the 39-year-old is still expecting a tough encounter.

    “Aberdeen are always going to be strong, particularly at home,” he said. “We need to play well to win, but we know we’re capable of that.”

    Previewing the trip to face Aberdeen

    It’s Aberdeen next for Motherwell, as they go in the hunt of points in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

    Pittodrie was a happy hunting ground last campaign, with the Steelmen winning 2-0 on their only visit. Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match.

    The form guide

    Both teams arrive at the game in topsy-turvy form.

    Motherwell’s weekend loss to Hearts was narrow and came off the back of a run of three games unbeaten, including wins at Livingston and Dundee, and a home draw with Rangers.

    Aberdeen have no wins in their last three, drawing away to Hibernian and St Johnstone, and losing 2-0 at home to Kilmarnock.

    But the Dons had started the domestic campaign strong, drawing at home to Rangers and then beating Dundee and St Mirren.

    Team news

    Curtis Main is out for the trip north with injury. Trevor Carson will be assessed as he continues his recovery from a minor ankle injury.

    Conor Sammon is available to play, having been ineligible to face his parent club Hearts last weekend.

    Ticket prices

    Adult entry will cost £26, while there are a range of concession prices available.

    Over 65s can get in for £19, while over 75s and under 21s can gain entry for £15.

    Under 18s go for £10, and children aged 12 and under can get in for £6.

    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

    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.
