    Motherwell 1 – 0 Dundee

    Motherwell made it a perfect four days with a hard-fought win over Dundee.

    Although it took a superb David Turnbull goal midway through the second half to separate the sides, the Steelmen generally dominated the proceedings to thoroughly deserve their second win of the week.

    And while it was a great week for the team, it was a personal achievement for the impressive Turnbull, who capped a mature performance with his second goal in only his third start this season.

    Nor surprisingly Stephen Robinson stood by the same team who dominated the game in Paisley in midweek.

    Searching for their first home league win of the season, the Fir Park men took the game to a Dens side who, rooted at the bottom of Ladbrokes Premiership, were equally desperate for a win.

    That meant it was end to end stuff in the early part of the game. Inside 90 seconds, Peter Hartley blocked in front of Trevor Carson and as play raced towards the other end Gaël Bigirimana’s thumping drive was palmed out by Jack Hamilton.

    In their next attack Dundee came within inches of opening the scoring, but Darren O’Dea’s powerful header crashed against the crossbar, before the ball was scrambled out of the home six yard area.

    Most of the play, though, was towards the visitor’s goal.

    In a packed box, Ryan Bowman could only force his effort wide of goal, before his pass inside set up Liam Grimshaw but his strike was blocked on its way to goal.

    After an exchange of passes with Richard Tait, Turnbull cleverly dragged the ball back from the byline, before driving an angled shot just over the bar.

    On the half hour Bigirimana’s cross fell for Carl McHugh near the corner of the box and his left foot dragged the ball across goal and beyond the far post.

    The final chance of the half came in injury time but – straining to get his head to Turnbull’s corner – Tom Aldred could only direct the ball beyond the back post.

    ‘Well started the second half on the front foot and within minutes had penalty appeals turned away when Grimshaw was felled in the box. Turnbull then threaded a measured pass for Main and his cut back intended for the waiting Bowman was almost turned over his own goal line by O’Dea.

    Another cross from the influential Turnbull was cleared in the direction of Bowman and his superbly executed overhead kick was blocked in front of goal.

    The pressure on the Dundee goal was incessant and Chris Cadden provided Bowman with a more orthodox opportunity but his glancing header drifted beyond Hamilton but on the wrong side of the ‘keeper’s post.

    After 65 minutes, Danny Johnson got his chance to find a way through the Dens defence.

    However, before he could find his feet Turnbull found the back of the net with an absolute screamer of a goal.

    Collecting the ball some 35 yards out the 19-year-old took aim before unleashing a sensational strike which sent the ball high into Hamilton’s right hand corner.

    With five minutes remaining, Cadden had a chance to claim his second goal of the week but after racing into the box he powered Grimshaw’s pass over the bar.

    After being pressed into their own half for almost the entire second half, Dundee made a late bid to take something from the game.

    Despite launching a series of set pieces into the “Well box, the Peter Hartley and Aldred stood firm protecting Carson who finished the game without having to make a single save.

    Need to Know: A look at Dundee

    Need to Know: A look at Dundee

    Dundee are bottom of the Ladbrokes Premiership but will provide a significant threat to a Motherwell team looking to record back-to-back victories in the same week.

    Here’s our weekend opponents profiled.

    Problems to sort in defence

    In their last four games, Dundee have let in 14 goals.

    Having let in two to Kilmarnock, they then lost four at Livingston, three at home to Hearts and then five against Celtic in their last match.

    A new face in the ranks

    Having trained with the club for several weeks, former Ross County midfielder Martin Woods has been reunited with his old boss Jim McIntyre.

    Signing a short-term deal on Friday, he will go straight into the squad for Saturday’s match.

    The 32-year-old was previously with Partick Thistle and Ross County, and scored his first Staggies goal back in 2015 against the Steelmen.

    New manager seeking first win

    Manager McIntyre has been in the dugout for three matches since replacing Neil McCann on 17 October.

    His three results so far have ended in defeat, with his team yet to find the net under his stewardship.

    Back the women in Scottish Cup final

    Back the women in Scottish Cup final

    Motherwell are aiming to pull off a shock as they take on Hibernian in the SSE Scottish Cup final.

    Having deservedly earned their place in Sunday’s showpiece at Firhill, Donald Jennow’s team are looking to lift the trophy by defeating a top flight Hibs side who have lost just once all season and missed out on the league title by just three points.

    The women of steel won the SWPL 2 title with a record points tally, earning their place in the top division next season, and are going for the double in Glasgow.

    Motherwell saw off Spartans in the semi final, having also defeated Cumbernauld Colts, Aberdeen and St Johnstone.

    Hibs meanwhile saw off main rivals Glasgow City in the last four, having previously overcome Edinburgh University Hutchison Vale, Dundee United and Thistle Weir.

    Kick off at Firhill Stadium on Sunday is at 4.10pm. Adult prices on the gate are £5 and concessions can get in for £2. Kids aged under 16 get in for free.

    We encourage all Motherwell fans to get along and support the women as they look to defy their underdog status and pull off an upset.

    Carson aiming for more clean sheets

    Trevor Carson is aiming to build on Wednesday’s win ahead of Saturday’s clash with Dundee.

    The ‘Well stopper picked up a first clean sheet in the Ladbrokes Premiership, and believes there is much more to come.

    He said: “Now that we’ve got that taste for clean sheets back, we’re just desperate for more.

    “Wednesday night felt like we were back to what made us successful last season, and we know what we have to do this weekend.”
