    Story of the Match from win over Dundee

    The second part of a big week saw Dundee head to Fir Park.

    This is the Story of the Match.

    Loan Watch: McLaughlin opens his account

    Neil McLaughlin was named in the starting team and grabbed his first goal of the campaign as Stirling Albion ran out 3-0 winners at home against Berwick Rangers.

    The youngster opened the scoring after 16 minutes, tucking home Danny Jardine’s pass at the back post.

    Former ‘Well youth Dylan Mackin was also on target for the Binos, with the win creating some distance between them at the bottom two clubs.

    Peter Morrison made his sixth appearance for Albion Rovers in their 2-1 defeat away to league leaders Peterhead.

    The young ‘Well stopper had another busy afternoon at a cold, windy Balmoor and made a number of stops in difficult conditions. But he couldn’t step his side ending up on the losing side, despite Barry Eley’s second-half hit.

    In the Championship, Jake Hastie was a 72nd minute sub as Alloa lost at home to Dunfermline. The winger was introduced with the Wasps trying to get back into the match following Jackson Longridge’s 69th minute goal, but the Pars held on for the three points.

    Ross MacLean was an unused sub as Morton thrashed Partick Thistle 5-1, where Shea Gordon continues to miss out with an injury picked up against Celtic earlier in the campaign.

    David Turnbull gets Scotland recognition

    Motherwell youngster David Turnbull has been recognised for his excellent form with a call to play for Scotland’s Under 20 side.

    The midfielder, who has scored twice in his last two appearances, has been a standout for Stephen Robinson’s side and makes the step up, having represented his nation at Under 19 level.

    The 19-year-old will be in contention to face Turkey on Saturday, 17 November, with the friendly match being played in Murcia in Spain.

    Women lose Scottish Cup final

    Motherwell were unable to cap an incredible season by lifting the SSE Scottish Women’s Cup as they fell to a crushing 8-0 defeat against Hibs.

    The women of steel headed into the showpiece fixture at Firhill as massive underdogs and, after conceding in the second minute, rarely came close to defying the odds.

    Abigail Harrison’s deflected shot put Hibs ahead after just two minutes and they doubled their lead just three minutes later when Jamie-Lee Napier headed home Rachel McLauchlan’s cross at the back post.

    Donald Jennow’s side were shell shocked and things went from bad to worse on 14 minutes when Harrison added to her tally with a clinical finish from close range.

    Harrison limped off to be replaced by Lauren Davidson and the substitute made an immediate impact when a clinical counter from a Motherwell corner ended with the striker slotting the ball under the helpless Autumn Farrell.

    The ‘Well goal continued to come under siege and Maxine Welsh was desperately unlucky to see her clearance from a low cross beat Farrell and find the net for 5-0.

    A sixth Hibs goal followed before the break, Cailin Michie’s low drive from outside the area finding the bottom right corner.

    Going into the half time break 6-0 down, Jennow was tasked with delivering one of the most difficult team talks of his managerial career.

    Napier bagged her second of the afternoon five minutes after the restart and completed her hat-trick just after the hour mark when she tapped in after Farrell had denied McLauchlan.

    Hayley Cunningham had a shot well saved and Suzanne Mulvey’s header was scrambled clear as Motherwell tried to find a consolation, but it was Hibs who continued to enjoy the better of the chances as the match drew to a close.

    In the end it was a bitterly disappointing way for ‘Well to end the season, but they can take great pride in their record breaking league campaign and in the run to the final.

    Motherwell will return to action in the new year, when preparations will begin for their first ever season in SWPL 1.

    Women prepare for Scottish Cup final

    Motherwell will bid to complete a historic league and cup double when they take on Hibernian in the final of the SSE Scottish Women’s Cup on Sunday.

    The women of steel have enjoyed a quite remarkable season, racing to the SWPL 2 title, setting a record points tally along the way and they have carried their form into the Scottish Cup, scoring 20 goals in their four games in so far in the competition.

    Donald Jennow’s side will go into the final as massive underdogs against a Hibs side aiming to clinch a Scottish and SWPL Cup double for the third successive season.

    Kick off at Firhill is 4:10pm. Tickets are available on the gate priced £5 for adults, £2 for concessions and free entry for under 16s.

    The Visitors

    In Hibernian, Motherwell will be coming up against one of the very best sides in Scotland.

    The Easter Road side have a wealth of quality throughout their side and have demonstrated those qualities with successes in both cup competitions over the last three years.

    Despite their domination in the cups, Grant Scott’s side fell agonisingly short of ending Glasgow City’s stranglehold on the SWPL 1 title, missing out on the final day of the season.

    Road to The Final

    Motherwell

    R2 – Cumbernauld Colts – 8-1

    L16 – Aberdeen – 8-1

    QF – St Johnstone – 1-0

    SF – Spartans – 3-1

    Hibernian

    R2 – Thistle Weir – 7-0

    L16 – Dundee United – 3-0

    QF – EUHV – 11-0

    SF – Glasgow City – 2-1

    What They Said

    Emma Black is under no illusions as to the size of the task facing Motherwell at Firhill and despite having won all there is to win in the Scottish women’s game, the defender insists sampling Scottish Cup success on the back of a superb league campaign would be amongst the best.

    “Hibs have won all the domestic cups out with the league in the last few seasons, that show they have that winning mentality already in place,” she said. “They have a lot of quality and international players and we are under no illusions as to how difficult a game it will be.

    “If you said to me when I signed in January that we’d have won the league having gone all the season unbeaten on the pitch and made the Scottish Cup final I’d have said there was no chance.”

    ‘Well gaffer Donald Jennow is determined to build on a fantastic season and is relishing the big occasion.

    “I’ve spoken recently about the success of this season and the achievements of this squad but today I want to look forward,” he said. “The most successful teams always ask “what’s next?” For me today should whet the appetite for more success.

    “I want more success for these players and for this club and so I want today to be the first step towards sustained success”
