    Need to know: A look at Ross County

    Motherwell Colts host Ross County on Saturday in the quarter-final of the IRN-BRU Cup at Fir Park. 

    Stephen Craigan’s history-making youngsters are the only remaining Colts’ side in the competition, and now face Championship opposition for a chance to make it to the last four.

    Here, we take a look at Steven Ferguson and Stuart Kettlewell’s side.

    Title aspirations

    The Dingwall outfit have started strongly in the Scottish Championship following their relegation last season, and currently sit four points off league leaders Ayr.

    In what is a competitive division, the Staggies are joined by Dundee United and fellow Highlanders Inverness CT in the immediate pack challenging Ian McCall’s side.

    Solid rearguard

    No side has a better defence in the Championship than Ross County, who have shipped just nine goals this term.

    Going forward, they have bagged 24 goals and are currently only being outscored by Ayr, who have found the net on 25 occasions.

    Motherwell Colts can expect a difficult clash against a side who have been impressive all over the park in 2018/19.

    Familiar territory

    Although it’s a long trip in distance for Saturday’s opponents, it’s not been long since Ross County were last at Fir Park.

    Back in January, the Staggies took on the Steelmen and lost 2-0, thanks to a Harry Souttar own goal and a Curtis Main strike to give Stephen Robinson’s men all three points.

    Win hospitality at Fir Park with the new Well Lottery

    Win hospitality at Fir Park with the new Well Lottery

    Our lottery scheme to help invest money in youth development and our academy has changed.

    Our new Well Lottery allows you the chance to win up to £25,000, while also continuing to back the future players of the club.

    Still priced at £1 per entry, our new  providers Unity will also offer up smaller prizes of £1,000 and £25.

    What’s more, if you sign up to our new lottery before 30 November, you will go into the prize draw to win hospitality at a first team game at Fir Park.

    HOW TO JOIN THE NEW WELL LOTTERY

    To join the new Well Lottery, you can now choose one of the following options:

    • Fill in the lottery leaflet provided and return via the freepost address provided to Unity.
    • Download a lottery leaflet from the Well Lottery website and return to Unity by post.
    • Sign up online here.

    Once you have signed up, you will receive a letter welcoming you to the lottery which will tell you your lottery numbers. You will then be entered into the draw for as long as you wish to play.

    How does the new Well Lottery work?

    We have teamed up with Unity to run the Well Lottery. For as little as £1 per week, you’ll have the chance to win up to £25,000. At least 50p of every £1 played goes straight to youth development but most importantly, there are no ongoing costs to the club.

    How is it different to the old lottery?

    New lottery numbers: Every player will be allocated a six-digit lottery number for every entry they wish to play. If you match your number with the winning number drawn on a Saturday in the correct sequence, you can win up to £25,000.

    Higher prize fund: Through Unity, we can now offer a higher weekly jackpot of £25,000, with smaller prizes of £1,000, £25 and five entries into the next draw on offer.

    More payment options: You can join the lottery by direct debit, credit card or cheque.

    Proceeds: Every £1 ticket gains Motherwell FC at least 50p towards the club’s youth development and academy programme.

    No change to the ticket price: It’s still £1 to play.

    Where does the money go?

    Every £1 is split three ways. At least 50p of every £1 comes straight to Motherwell FC, which is put towards the club’s youth Development and academy programme. The other 50p covers the cost of the administration of the lottery, and goes towards the fantastic prize fund.

    How do I win?

    Every player of the new Well Lottery will be allocated a six-digit lottery number for every entry they wish to play. This idea is to match your number with the winning number that is drawn on a Saturday in the correct sequence. Every entry in the Unity lottery has an equal one in 63 chance of winning a prize.

    For example:

    325764 – random winning number

    326574 – your lottery number

    This is a three-number match, winning five entries into the next draw.

    How do I know if I have won?

    Players are notified automatically, and prizes sent out by post, so you do not need to claim your prize. If you would like to check the winning number each week, these can be found on Unity’s website and here on the official Motherwell FC website.

    What is Unity?

    Unity is a platform on which charities run their own fundraising lottery. It is run by an external lottery manager, Sterling Lotteries, who administer hundreds of charity lotteries for clients across the country.

    Players head off on international duty

    Three Motherwell players have joined up with their countries for the November international break.

    Trevor Carson is away with Northern Ireland, as they prepare for a friendly with the Republic of Ireland on Thursday and then a Nations League encounter with Austria on Sunday.

    His nation are already out of the running to finish top of their Nations League group, but are battling against relegation to League D in their final game.

    Gaël Bigirimana’s Burundi have a huge match in their quest to reach the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time in their history.

    A win against South Sudan on Friday could send them top of their qualifying group with one game to go.

    David Turnbull could make his debut at Under 20 level for Scotland on Saturday.

    Capped previously for the 19s, the talented youngster is in contention to play for Scot Gemmill’s team against Turkey in Murcia, Spain.

    The goals as the Reserves win at Morton

    Alex Rodriguez Gorrín and Jake Hastie were on target as Motherwell’s reserve side won 2-0 at Morton on Monday.

    The victory secured their passage to the last four of the SPFL Reserve Cup, having topped their group.

    Craigan: The attitude was spot on

    Stephen Craigan praised his young side as they progressed to the last four of the SPFL Reserve Cup with a 2-0 win at Morton on Monday.

    Goals from Alex Rodriguez Gorrīn and Jake Hastie were the difference in a comfortable victory for the second string, as they prepare to face Championship side Ross County in the IRN-BRU Cup this weekend.

    Reserves book cup semi-final place

    Motherwell have qualified for the semi-finals of the SPFL Reserve Cup, after defeating Morton 2-0 at Cappielow.

    Alex Rodriguez Gorrín’s first half penalty and Jake Hastie’s late strike were the difference between the two sides.

    Several first team players featured in Greenock, with Mark Gillespie, Elliott Frear and Gorrín all in the starting team.

    With 14 minutes on the clock, Frear’s bursting run into the box from the right saw him pulled back, leaving the referee with no hesitation in pointing to the spot. Gorrín’s penalty was low and composed, finding the inside side netting.

    Chances were at a premium throughout, although Stephen Craigan’s side controlled the match for the most part.

    They then put the game to bed with five minutes to spare. Substitute Hastie found room on the left as he drove into the box, before he picked his spot with a low shot into the bottom right corner of the net.

    Having now topped their group, the young Steelmen advance to next year’s semi-finals.

    Loan Watch: Hastie faces MacLean

    Loan Watch: Hastie faces MacLean

    Ross MacLean and Jake Hastie’s teams went head to head in the Ladbrokes Championship on Saturday, as Morton hosted Alloa.

    The pair ended up not sharing the pitch, with MacLean subbed off after 64 minutes and Hastie coming on 14 minutes later, as the Wasps ran out 2-0 winners at Cappielow.

    Late penalties from Allan Trouten and Iain Flannigan gave Alloa a much-needed win to claw themselves away from the bottom end of the table, and dent the Ton’s play-off chase.

    PJ Morrison and Neil McLaughlin were both in League Two action, turning out for Albion Rovers and Stirling Albion respectively.

    Goalkeeper Morrison saw his side go down 2-1 at home to table-toppers Edinburgh City, with Blair Henderson netting twice.

    McLaughlin played the 90 minutes for Stirling as they drew 1-1 at Clyde, a positive result against a side sitting 12 points ahead of them in the table.

    Stephen Craigan’s reserves side can book their spot in the semi-finals of the SPFL Reserve Cup on Monday.

    The youngsters travel to Cappielow to take on Greenock Morton. Kick off is at 2pm. Entry is £5 for adults, and free for all other age groups.

    A win or a draw will be enough to guarantee a place in the last four.

    A defeat would hand Dunfermline Athletic the chance to take top spot on Tuesday, but they would require a seven-goal swing to take the group on goal difference.
