    Condie: Our levels won’t drop

    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.”

    Watch highlights from Aberdeen defeat

    Tom Aldred, Trevor Carson and Elliott Frear reflected on a frustrating afternoon at Pittodrie. 

    An early James Wilson goal was enough for the hosts to secure all three points, during a scrappy encounter against Derek McInnes’ side.

    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.”

    Aberdeen 1 – 0 Motherwell

    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.”

    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.

    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.
