Morgan Hunter believes the women of steel are ready to show their mettle, when they travel to K-Park to face Celtic on Friday evening.
After opening their SWPL1 campaign with a win over Stirling University, ‘Well have suffered two successive league defeats.
Last weekend’s 4-0 loss at home to Hibs was harsh on Donald Jennow’s side, but Hunter says all their focus is on bouncing back in East Kilbride.
“Last week was tough, but I think we held our own very well in the first half,” the ‘Well keeper said. “We need to take that confidence into the game on Friday.
“There’s been lots of changes to most teams in SWPL 1 this season so it’s hard to predict how things will go.
“Celtic will definitely be a tough opposition but we are more than ready to show we are too.”
Friday evening’s clash will see Motherwell come up against Eddie Wolecki Black for the first time since the former ‘Well gaffer joined Celtic in the summer of 2018.
It’s another element that will add to the intrigue of an important league fixture, though Hunter insists all that matters is the end result.
“The only thing mentioned has been that we must fight to win and get three points,” she added. “There’s no personal feelings when that whistle goes on Friday.
“It’s always important to get points on the board early and build momentum.
“We won’t focus on the league table too early. It’s important that we take it game by game.”
Morgan has enjoyed a solid start to life at Fir Park.
She kept a clean sheet on her debut and in the SWPL Cup win over Hutchison Vale.
On Sunday, the 25-year-old made a number of good stops, before suffering the misfortune of seeing Kirsten Reilly’s free kick slip through her grasp for Hibernian’s fourth.
“That final goal was a massive disappointment and it’s a horrible feeling conceding a goal like that,” she admitted. ”It’s so important not to go into your own head after that happens.
“It can’t be changed, so you focus on the next one, which was a shot on target that I managed to push round the post.
“If I’d let my head drop, that would’ve been another goal.
“I’m really enjoying it here, as I said it’s my first taste of SWPL1 and it’s challenging but I’m learning everyday.
“The girls have made it so easy settling in and theres so much quality about this team. I’m excited to see how the season goes.”
