    Manager: Our quality shone through

    Motherwell keep top six hopes alive

    Motherwell kept their top six dreams going with an emphatic 3-0 victory over St Johnstone.

    Second half goals from Elliott Frear, David Turnbull and Richard Tait sealed all three points, keeping the Steelmen within five points of Hibernian with two games to go.

    A difficult first half saw the hosts have plenty of the ball, but struggle to break down a Saints defence which sat in and stood firm.

    Chris Kane had a glorious chance early on for the visitors, before they were given a penalty for a foul which was hotly contested.

    With anger rising, Mark Gillespie got down early to keep out Liam Craig’s spot kick effort to keep his clean sheet.

    The second half saw a scrappy opening 20 minutes, before the introductions of Frear and the returning Chris Cadden sparked Motherwell’s attacking play to life.

    Dunne’s pass into Main’s feet saw the big striker hold off his marker, spin and play in Frear, who curled his first-time effort into the far corner of the net.

    Ten minutes later, it was two. Campbell was the creator, laying in Turnbull who played a tidy finish past Zander Clark.

    Then, in stoppage time, skipper Richard Tait cut in from the left side and placed a bouncing shot into the far right corner of the net.

    Tait: No reason we can’t get sixth

    A win is needed for the Steelmen against St Johnstone on Saturday afternoon, as both sides fight to catch Hibernian in sixth spot.

    Adam Livingstone signs new deal

    Adam Livingstone has signed a new contract with the club.

    The youth academy product, who made his debut for his boyhood heroes back in May 2017, has extended his deal until the summer of 2020.

    The 21-year-old left back has gone on to make a further three appearances to date and manager Stephen Robinson hopes 2019/20 will be his breakthrough season.

    “Adam is a player with a lot of raw talent and potential,” he said.

    “We’ve asked a lot of him in terms of his football on and off the park, and to his credit, he has embraced that and deserves his new deal.

    “It’s now up to him to make that left back position his own, the same way Allan Campbell, David Turnbull and Jake Hastie have cemented their spot in the team. I certainly believe he has it in him.”

    Livingstone spent a short spell on loan at League One side East Fife last season and is looking forward to the challenge of joining his fellow youngsters in the Fir Park first team.

    “I am delighted to have extended my contract at a club,” he said.

    “The manager has been great with me. He’s been very clear about what I need to do and has even taken his own personal time to try and help improve my game.

    “I am desperate to be a success here, My family and I have all been lifelong supporters of the club, and all my focus is now establishing myself.”

    Need to Know: A look at the Saints

    Need to Know: A look at the Saints

    St Johnstone head to Fir Park on Saturday looking to put paid to Motherwell’s top six ambitions, and push on themselves to catch Hibs.

    Here’s a look at our weekend opponents.

    Winless run arrested

    Wednesday night’s 1-0 win over St Mirren ended the Perth Saints’ run of nine games without a victory.

    Tommy Wright’s men had racked up eight defeats and one draw at Ibrox along the way, before Chris Kane’s goal got them back on track.

    In the top six hunt

    That win over St Mirren lifted St Johnstone one point above Motherwell in the league table, and within four of sixth-placed Hibernian with three games to go.

    Both team on Saturday are looking for three points to keep them in with a chance of catching the Edinburgh club, and making a late burst into the top half of the table.

    Top six stalwarts

    The 2017/18 campaign was the first since 2010/11 where St Johnstone weren’t in the top six of the Ladbrokes Premiership after the split.

    An eighth placed finish ended a run of three consecutive fourth-placed finishes, having also finished sixth twice and also in third spot.

    In Numbers: Preparing for St Johnstone

    Motherwell host St Johnstone on Saturday, with both teams slugging it out to catch Hibernian for place in the Ladbrokes Premiership’s top six.

    Here’s the game previewed in numbers.

    Six

    It’s a battle to be in the running for sixth spot on Saturday, as both teams try and chase down Hibernian with games running out.

    Motherwell currently sit on 40 points, five behind the Edinburgh club with three matches to play. St Johnstone, meanwhile, are on 41, after defeating St Mirren on Wednesday night.

    Nine

    St Johnstone ended a nine-game run without a victory in all competitions when they beat St Mirren 1-0.

    In that run they lost eight and drawn one, with their one positive result coming in a 0-0 draw at Rangers, before the home win over the Buddies.

    95

    Up to Saturday, Motherwell will have went 95 days without a home defeat in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

    Kilmarnock’s 1-0 win on Boxing Day was the last time the Steelmen went down at Fir Park on league business. Since then, Hibernian, Livingston, Hearts and Hamilton Academical have all been defeated.
