    Women’s coach relishing cup final challenge

    Women’s coach relishing cup final challenge

    Motherwell assistant boss Greg Harrison says reaching the SSE Scottish Women’s Cup final has rounded off a dream start to his time at the club.

    Donald Jennow brought Harrison to Fir Park following his appointment as head coach in August.

    Since his arrival, the women of steel have negotiated their quarter-final tie with St Johnstone and then recorded a superb 3-1 victory over Spartans to set up a meeting with Hibs in the final at Firhill on 4 November.

    “I couldn’t have written this script,” he said. “I came in after the league was already won, so the focus was set on the cup as well as breaking records as a team and individually.

    “It has been a difficult run to the final, St Johnstone gave us a very tough game in Perth and then obviously we had to then beat top flight opposition in the semi final.

    “I’m sure I speak on behalf of all the coaching staff when I say we are all so excited by the challenge.

    “Now our task is to provide the players with as much guidance ahead of what will be a massive occasion for the football club.”

    Following clinching a place in the final, Jennow and Harrison now are tasked with the responsibility of bringing the players focus back to league matters.

    ‘Well travel to face Glasgow Girls on Sunday, in what is their penultimate SWPL2 fixture.

    Harrison insists the final two league fixtures represent a perfect opportunity for everyone in the squad to stake their claim for a place in the starting team on cup final day.

    “After the game it took a wee while to sink in,” he added. “We were all absolutely delighted and it was a proud day for everyone involved with the team.

    “Training on Monday was great, and the players are all really excited and working hard to prove they deserve a cup final place.

    “The two remaining games are a great chance for everyone in the squad to prove their worth and will provide some opportunity to perhaps rest a few too ahead of another massive fixture.

    “Personally, I’m very excited, as a player I wasn’t ever good enough to play in a Scottish Cup final, but the squad we have are more than capable and absolutely deserve the opportunity.”

    Following the Spartans victory, both Jennow and influential midfielder Kerry Montgomery thanked the ‘Well support for their backing at Forthbank.

    Harrison is hoping to see even more claret and amber at Firhill in just over two weeks time and has urged the fans yet to attend a women’s football match, to give the game a chance.

    “What I’d say to any Motherwell fan thinking of making it along is to please do so,” said the ‘Well assistant. “I’m sure anyone coming along for the first time will be surprised by the quality on show.

    “An adult can go for £5 and youngsters get in for free, it’ll be a great family occasion.

    “It’s a Motherwell team in a Scottish Cup final. It’s the same badge on the kit and we will be doing everything we can to do the club proud.”

    Setting the scene on the visit of St Johnstone

    Setting the scene on the visit of St Johnstone

    It’s back to league action after the international break on Saturday, as St Johnstone visit Fir Park.

    Let’s set the scene for the return to Ladbrokes Premiership action.

    First encounter of the campaign

    Motherwell and St Johnstone lock horns for the first time in the 2018/19 season on Saturday, with eight games of the campaign already passed.

    The Saints sit three points above the Steelmen in the table, having gathered eight points compared to their opponents’ five.

    Mixed results

    Both teams have identical records in their last five matches. From four league games and one Betfred Cup match, both have lost four and drawn one.

    Motherwell arrested a four-game run of defeats with a draw against Livingston in their last outing, with Ryan Bowman’s opener being cancelled out by a Keaghan Jacobs free kick.

    St Johnstone started their last five matches with a home draw with Aberdeen, before going on to lose their last four. Two of those games have been against Celtic, including a 6-1 home loss in their last outing.

    Head to head

    The two teams came face-to-face with each other in the 2017/18 season, with St Johnstone having the upper hand.

    Tommy Wright’s men won the first encounter of the campaign 4-1, although Motherwell finished the game with eight men on the pitch because of three red cards.

    Motherwell won the next match when St Johnstone visited Fir Park, with Allan Campbell and Curtis Main netting in a 2-0 win.

    A 0-0 draw at McDiarmid Park then followed, before the Saints sprung a surprise with a 5-1 win at Fir Park in May as Stephen Robinson’s men geared up for the Scottish Cup final.

    Ticket information

    Our cheapest ticket for this Saturday’s game is just £20 for adults. Children aged 15 and under can get in to the stadium for just £3 in every stand.

    Donnelly’s Northern Ireland miss out on play-off spot

    Donnelly’s Northern Ireland miss out on play-off spot

    Liam Donnelly captained Northern Ireland Under 21s to victory on Tuesday night, but his side were denied a place in the UEFA Under 21 European Championship play-offs.

    The nation’s most-capped player at the level helped his team to a 1-0 home win over Slovakia, securing second spot in their group.

    But Portugal’s victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina meant it wasn’t possible for the green and white army to be ranked as one of the best runners-up, with only four of the nine teams in second progressing to the play-off stage.

    Nevertheless, the win over Slovakia made it five wins in nine for former ‘Well boss Ian Baraclough’s side, who also defeated group winners Spain away in September, a game in which Donnelly got on the scoresheet.

    Cadden and Campbell feature in Scotland loss

    Cadden and Campbell feature in Scotland loss

    Chris Cadden and Allan Campbell started as Scotland’s 2019 European Championship qualifying campaign ended with defeat against England.

    The pair were involved at Tynecastle as the group winners ran out 2-0 winners, netting second half goals through Reiss Nelson and Kieran Dowell.

    For Cadden, the match marked the last time he will be able to feature competitively for the Under 21s, with the 22-year-old ineligible for the next qualifying campaign.

    Scotland were already out of the reckoning to make it to the 2019 Euros, having lost in Ukraine last week.

    See the goals as reserves hit five

    Conor Sammon scored two, with Broque Watson, Adam Livingstone and Christian Mbulu also netting in the 5-1 win.
