Lesley Condie says Motherwell won’t let up in their pursuit of perfection this campaign.
The women of steel travel to Aberdeen on Sunday for their penultimate away league fixture of the season, with a SSE Scottish Cup semi-final also on the horizon.
Following a points deduction, the Dons require four wins from their last four games and a massive swing in their goal difference to avoid relegation.
Despite their opponents’ struggles, Condie insists there will be no easing up from Motherwell when the two sides meet at the Aberdeen Sports Village.
“Although we have already won the league, we are all still motivated to do as well as we can and continue on our successful run,” she added. “I think we would be disappointed in ourselves if we let our standards slip.
“Everyone wants to be on the pitch playing, especially when the spotlight turns to the semi-final so it is keeping the tempo and standards high at training.
“We had a tough game last week and we didn’t play as well as we could have, so the game against Aberdeen is a chance to put things right again and play the way we have the majority of the season.”
The defender ended a four-year absence from the game when she joined the women of steel at the beginning of the season.
Over the course of the campaign Condie has played a major role in ‘Well clinching the SWPL 2 title and in their progression to the last four of the SSE Scottish Women’s Cup.
Motherwell have conceded just 16 goals across 21 games in all competitions this season.
“It’s been fantastic, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this season,” Condie said. “I had been out of the game for four years, so I was feeling a bit apprehensive about coming back. But it has been the best thing I have done.
“We have a great group of girls, many of whom I used to play with and of course it’s nice for the defence to get a bit of credit for that success.”
Having defeated St Johnstone in last Sunday, Motherwell will face Spartans in the semi final, looking to top off an incredible season in style.
As the only remaining SWPL 2 side in the competition, Condie believes Motherwell will be considered underdogs, but says she and her team-mates are relishing the opportunity to test themselves on the big stage.
“It’s massive for us, especially being a SWPL 2 team and then other three being top league sides,” she said.
“We are looking at it as an amazing opportunity to see how well we can do on the big stage.
“We know we are underdogs but that’s the beauty of the cup and we will certainly put everything we have into it. It will be a very exciting day for everyone associated with the team.”
