    Montgomery set to face familiar foes

    Montgomery set to face familiar foes

    Kerry Montgomery will come up against familiar opposition when Spartans visit Ravenscraig in SWPL Cup on Sunday.

    The ‘Well captain enjoyed a successful time with the capital side between 2012 and 2015, winning the SWPL Player of the Year award in her final season.

    Last season, Montgomery had the chance to come up against her former club in the semi-final of the SSE Scottish Cup and she again made a big impact, netting the second goal in an impressive 3-1 win for the women of steel.

    It’s a game that she ranks as one of her favourites since joining the club in early 2018 and she is determined for a repeat showing when the two sides clash for a place in the last four.

    “I’m really looking forward to it,” she said. “It should be competitive and a really good game to watch and be involved in.

    “Spartans are always a tricky team to come up against, it was a club I played at previously so I know they’ll be very prepared for the match.

    “I’m sure they’ll be looking for revenge after last years semi-final, we however have a completely different team from that match so will be a very different game from the last one.

    “I’d love us to get through to the semi final in our first season in the top flight as a brand new team.

    “It would be a brilliant achievement.

    “I’m really proud to be a part of this group we have in just now, it’s a great bunch of hard working girls, eager to learn and become a name in this league.”

    Motherwell have experienced a mixed start to life in the top flight of Scottish women’s football.

    Four points from their opening four games mean they currently occupy fifth spot in the SWPL1 table.

    Montgomery believes the start made has given the team a platform to build upon, but insists ‘Well will have to take some risks to book their place in the last four.

    “Cup games are very different from league games,” she added. “We’re still building on our league performances and trying to cement our way of playing.

    “In a quarter final cup match I think we’ll take a lot more risks and try new things.

    “We have already shown this season that we can compete and everything we work on in training is coming together.”

    Last week, ‘Well took a richly deserved share of the spoils when they came up against former boss Eddie Wolecki Black’s Celtic.

    Much of the game took place in the middle of the park, with Montgomery playing a vital role.

    The 30-year-old is relishing her role as club captain and is loving the challenges that come with top division football.

    “The more of a challenge the more I know I need to lift my game,” she added. “I know the girls feed off of that too. So I made sure I left everything on the park in that game.

    “It was a very good point away from home for us, but we need to push on now and find the cutting edge in the final third to take three points in big games.

    “If Donald [Jennow] has the belief in me to let me wear the captains band then I know I need to prove every game that I’m willing to dig deep for the team and lead the very best I can.”

    ‘Well quartet start for Scotland Under 21s

    ‘Well quartet start for Scotland Under 21s

    All four of Motherwell’s players in the Scotland Under 21 squad started their 0-0 draw with Mexico on Friday afternoon.

    Allan Campbell, Jake Hastie, Barry Maguire and David Turnbull were all picked for the match in Spain, the first of two friendlies for Scot Gemmill’s side.

    Turnbull played the first half, while Hastie got 75 minutes, with Campbell and Maguire playing the full 90.

    Celtic’s Mikey Johnston missed a last-second penalty for the young Scots, denying them a late victory.

    The Under 21s are in action against Sweden on Monday. Kick off in Marbella at 12.30pm.

    Motherwell’s international quartet are all in contention to play for Scotland’s Under 21s against Mexico on Friday.

    Allan Campbell, Jake Hastie, Barry Maguire and David Turnbull are all in Scot Gemmill’s squad for the friendly match in Marbella.

    Midfielder Campbell already has plenty experience at Under 21 international level, but his three team-mates are in the selection for the first time.

    Kick off against Mexico is at 3pm.

    ‘Well in SWPL Cup action on Sunday

    Motherwell are in SWPL Cup action on Sunday, as Spartans travel to Ravenscraig.

    Having defeated the Edinburgh side in the SSE Scottish Cup semi-final last season, the women of steel face them for the first time in the 2019 campaign.

    Kick-off is at 2.30pm.

    The Opposition

    Spartans started the season with a bang, picking up a highly credible draw against last season’s title contenders Hibernian.

    Debbi McCulloch’s side followed that with defeats to Celtic and Glasgow City but they’ve also picked up a league win against Stirling University, and a victory in their cup first round match with Hamilton Academical.

    Spartans were comfortably mid-table in 2017, but had a nervous year last season as they found themselves nearer the bottom end of the league.

    This campaign they have four points from their four league games, though they trail Motherwell on goal difference. They currently occupy sixth place in the table, the same position as at the conclusion of the 2018 campaign.

    Despite competing in different divisions last season, Motherwell did meet this afternoon’s opponents in the semi final of the SSE Scottish Cup in October 2018.

    On that occasion it was Donald Jennow’s side who would emerge the victors with goals from Megan Burns, Kerry Montgomery and Caitlin Russell earning them a place in the final.

    Sunday’s match will be the first of two meetings between the teams in the space of a week, with the sides facing off again in the league next Sunday at Ainslie Park.

    Position

    Motherwell: SWPL1 – fifth – four points

    Spartans: SWPL1 – sixth – four points

    Motherwell’s recent form

    A 0-0 draw at Celtic last time out for Motherwell showed the progression the new-look side have made, holding the ambitious side with a hard-working performance.

    A 13-0 SWPL Cup win over Hutchison Vale demonstrated the goalscoring prowess remains. In the league, an opening day win over Stirling University has since been followed up by a controversial defeat at Forfar Farmington, and a home defeat to high-flying Hibernian.

    HOW DOES THE WELL LOTTERY WORK?

    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.

    Reserves come back to beat Kilmarnock

    Maurice Ross believes the reserves are playing at a level that makes them an attracting proposition for supporters to come and watch.

    The second string came from behind to defeat Kilmarnock 2-1 on Monday, with the coach pleased the team didn’t let going a goal behind affect them.

    “I would pay to watch the players play like they did today,” said Ross. “But they are now showing it every week.

    “If your principles are to score goals and contain teams, but you go one down, do those principles change? They don’t, and they didn’t.

    “We keep harping on at them. We’ve got a way of playing we think is right, and to me we are seeing that every single week.

    “The game was played with a level of quality and, for me, that’s great.”

    Carl McHugh, Elliott Frear, Conor Sammon and Danny Johnson all started for the second string, with Johnson on target along with Jamie Semple.

    Motherwell controlled possession throughout the match, but struggled to carve out scoring chances in the opening 45.

    Then, early in the second half, they fell behind as Danny Higgins rifled the ball into the top left corner of the net, after Rohan Ferguson had come out far to try and catch a cross under pressure and lost it.

    The goalkeeper made up quickly after, saving Ally McDonald’s penalty.

    That proved the catalyst, and soon James Scott turned provider for Johnson, who lifted an effort from the edge of the area over goalkeeper Devlin Mackay and into the net.

    Within a minute, Semple saw his opportunity 25 yards from goal and saw a fierce long-range effort beat the goalkeeper and put the hosts ahead.

    A number of young academy graduates lined up alongside more experienced heads, and Ross says their progression is clear to see.

    “We have boys at 17 years old who are playing like they are 21,” he said.

    “With their mums and dads, and others, watching on, I hope it shows the progress they are making.”
