    In Numbers: Preparing for the Saints

    In Numbers: Preparing for the Saints

    Motherwell head to Perth on Saturday seeking a first win at McDiarmid Park since 2012.

    Here’s the game previewed in numbers.

    Eight

    The number of consecutive games St Johnstone have currently gone unbeaten, a run which started with a late, late 1-o win over Motherwell in October.

    Wins over St Mirren, Livingston, Hibernian, Hamilton and Aberdeen followed, as well as draws with Hearts and Kilmarnock.

    From those eight games they’ve kept a remarkable seven clean sheets, conceding only to Hearts.

    10

    It’s been 10 games since Motherwell last recorded a win in Perth, which came courtesy of a 3-1 win in November 2012.

    Jamie Murphy grabbed a first half double in that victory, with Nicky Law adding the third before David Robertson’s late consolation.

    The Saints have won seven at home since then, with two draws. The last game at McDiarmid Park ended 0-0 towards the end of the 2017/18 campaign.

    13

    Thirteen points currently separate the two sides in the Ladbrokes Premiership table, with both having played 16 matches.

    St Johnstone sit in fifth spot have won eight, drawn four and lost four so far and have an equal goal difference, having both scored and conceded 20 goals.

    Motherwell are currently ninth, winning four, drawing three and losing nine so far.

    Tale of the tape

    The two sides played out a tight match at Fir Park back in October, with a 0-0 draw looking certain until Jason Kerr popped up two minutes into stoppage time to nab all three points.

    Since then, it sparked the Saints’ fantastic unbeaten run, picking up a further five wins and two draws to go eight games without a defeat, keeping seven clean sheets along the way.

    Before hand

    The two teams met four times in 2017/18, with St Johnstone winning two, Motherwell one and one game ending in a draw.

    Andy Rose to sign for Vancouver Whitecaps

    Andy Rose to sign for Vancouver Whitecaps

    Andy Rose has taken the opportunity to join MLS club Vancouver Whitecaps, and will complete his move on 1 January 2019.

    The 28-year-old and his family are all permanent residents in the United States and the offer from Major League Soccer gives Rose a chance to return to employment before the expiration of his green card at the start of the new year.

    The club reached an understanding in the summer with Andy that, should an offer from MLS come in January, he would be allowed to leave.

    The former Seattle Sounders midfielder has spent a memorable 18 months with the Steelmen, making over 50 appearances in claret and amber and performing at the heart of the side who reached two cup finals in the 2017/18 season.

    “I’ve had such an amazing time at Fir Park and I want to thank everyone at the football club for making me feel welcome from day one,” Andy said.

    “From the fans, to the staff, to the boys in the dressing room, it’s been an unforgettable experience for me and my family.

    “The opportunity to return to America is something which I could not risk turning down and I’m extremely grateful to the club for supporting me, not just now, but throughout my time here in Scotland.”

    The football club believes this opportunity is one which Andy and his family have to take, and wish him all the best as he gets set to return to MLS.

    Although he will live and ply his trade in Canada with the ‘Caps, player contracts are held centrally by the league, meaning he will be employed in the USA and allow him to meet his green card requirements.

    ‘Well boss Stephen Robinson added: “We had a gentlemen’s agreement with Andy when he signed his new deal that if an opportunity presented itself back near his home and family, we would allow him to go and do it.

    “Andy has been a superb professional during his time at Motherwell and I have no doubts he’ll give everything in the last six games before departing for North America.

    “On behalf of everyone at the club, I would like to thank him for his contribution and wish him every success with his future career.”

    Loan Watch: Four in action

    Loan Watch: Four in action

    Four young loanees were in action in the Ladbrokes Championship and League Two at the weekend.

    Jake Hastie played 74 minutes for Alloa Athletic in a bottom-of-the-table clash with Falkirk.

    The two sides were locked on points going into the game, with the Wasps narrowly ahead on goal difference.

    Former ‘Well man Deimantas Petravicius opened the scoring for the Bairns, with Paul Paton doubling the advantage in the first half.

    Hastie then set up Alan Trouten to get his side back into the game just before the break, and the on-loan winger had just been subbed off when Trouten struck the equalising goal.

    Morton hosted Dundee United, looking to claw their way back into play-off contention.

    Ross MacLean came on as a sub with 18 minutes to go, and Gregor Buchanan’s equaliser arrived shortly after in a 1-1 draw at Cappielow.

    In League Two, Neil McLaughlin played 90 minutes for Stirling Albion as they drew 1-1 with Queen’s Park, while PJ Morrison was back in action for Albion Rovers in their 4-2 loss at Elgin City.
