After enduring the disappointment of seeing their 3-0 lead over Rangers slip through their grasp, a massive challenge awaits Motherwell on Sunday when they take on Glasgow City at Petershill Park.
It looked like Donald Jennow’s side were set to record their second victory of the season on Wednesday night, but they were stunned as Rangers struck three times in the final eight minutes.
The result was cruel on ‘Well, who had controlled proceedings for the best part of the game. They’ll need to lift themselves quickly with a visit to the 12-in-a-row champions on the horizon.
Kick-off is at 2:10pm.
Glasgow City have enjoyed a superb start to the 2019 season, winning all five of their league fixtures so far.
In addition to their excellent league form, they have also booked their place in the final of the SWPL Cup, where they will meet Hibernian.
Testimony to the quality within the City squad is that five of their players are set to be included in Shelley Kerr’s Scotland squad for the summer’s World Cup in France.
In their last league outing, Scott Booth’s side had to battle back from a goal behind against Celtic, a result he hailed as their ‘biggest of the season so far’.
Motherwell: SWPL1 – sixth – five points
Glasgow City: SWPL1 – first – 15 points
WHAT THEY SAID
‘Well head coach Donald Jennow says his side must bounce back from the disappointment of Wednesday night when they take on Glasgow City.
Jennow, who previously spent five years at City as assistant to Eddie Wolecki Black and knows of the great quality Sunday’s opponents have within their ranks.
“Feeling sorry for ourselves isn’t going to change the result so of course we wait for an opportunity to put it right,” Jennow said.
“Hopefully we can continue to make steps forward and pick up as many points as we can.
“Glasgow City look strong again this year so we expect a tough afternoon but I love that challenge.”
After edging out Celtic 2-1 on Thursday evening, Scott Booth is expecting another tough challenge when Motherwell visit Petershill Park.
“Motherwell have already shown this season that they can put in some really good performances,” he said.
“We have to approach the game right and hopefully we can start better than we did against Celtic.”
