    Setting the scene on Dundee

    http://dundee

    Motherwell host their first post-split home game on Saturday, as Dundee visit Fir Park.

    Here’s an early look ahead to the match.

    What’s at stake

    Motherwell are in a three-way fight for seventh place with St Johnstone and Livingston. The Saints sit three points ahead as things stand, with Livingston two points behind the Steelmen.

    Dundee are desperate need of points to pull themselves out of relegation danger. The Dark Blues are currently six adrift at the bottom behind St Mirren, and a further two points from total safety behind Hamilton Academical.

    Tale of the tape

    Motherwell have won one, drawn one and lost three of their last five. A win over St Johnstone came with a draw at Hamilton, but defeats to Hibernian, Rangers and Aberdeen.

    Dundee have lost all of their last five games, going down to Celtic, St Mirren, Dundee and St Johnstone twice.

    Head to head

    Motherwell have won six games in a row against Dundee, and are unbeaten against Jim McIntyre’s side in eight.

    The last game at Dens Park saw a David Turnbull penalty split the sides. His long-range strike also was the difference in a 1-0 victory last time out at Fir Park.

    The fight for seventh started with a battle with our local rivals.

    Reserves lose final match to Celtic

    Motherwell lost their chance to claim the SPFL Reserve League title as they were defeated 3-1 by Celtic in their final game of the season.

    The Glasgow side themselves went top with a game to play, with goals from Armstrong Oxoflex, PJ Crossan and Mikey Johnston sealing victory.

    Conor Sammon grabbed a late consolation for Maurice Ross’ side, who featured a number of first team players.

    Peter Hartley, Chris Cadden and Danny Johnson also got minutes for the second string, who went into the game knowing a win could put them in title contention.

    Within nine minutes, the visitors were in front at Forthbank. Oxoflex worked a one-two on the edge of the area, before side footing past Rohan Ferguson to open the scoring.

    Both sides had chances as the first half wore on, but Celtic would strike on the verge of half time to double their advantage.

    A driving run through the middle of the park by Crossan presented him a shooting chance from the edge of the box, which he took with aplomb.

    Then, soon after the hour mark, Johnston netted the third. Bursting through a number of bodies, he slotted under Ferguson to make it 3-0.

    Motherwell had chances and got a consolation with five to go, with Sammon getting on the end of a terrific reverse pass from subsitute Akeel Rehman, putting the ball past the goalkeeper.

    The young Steelmen’s season is now complete, and they must now wait to see how high up the table they will finish.

    Glasgow City defeat Motherwell

    Glasgow City defeat Motherwell

    Motherwell suffered a heavy defeat against Glasgow City at Petershill Park on Sunday.

    Four first-half goals for Kirsty Howat had the league leaders in command at half time and they would add to their tally a further four times after the break.

    City broke the deadlock after five minutes when Kirsty Howat headed the ball past Morgan Hunter from a corner and she added her second three minutes later, capitalising on a slack back pass before rounding the keeper and slotting home.

    Hunter pulled off a string of saves before Howat completed her hat trick when she scrambled home from a corner.

    The fourth goal came four minutes before the break when Howat found herself first to the driven through ball and she made no mistake by poking it past the onrushing Hunter to extend City’s lead.

    Second half substitute Jordan McLintock made it 5-0 with 54 minutes played and Motherwell’s problems worsened as Kerry Montgomery was ordered off following a second booking.

    Jenna Clark made it 6-0 from the resulting free kick and Joanne Paton waltzed her way into the box past three ‘Well defenders before squaring it across the box to fellow substitute Lara Ivanusa to slot into an empty net to make it seven.

    Goal number eight for City came with five minutes to play, Clare Shine was on hand to add her name to the scoresheet, advancing forward into the box before producing a smart finish to further extend City’s lead.

    The game would finish 8-0 which was unfair on Hunter, who produced some fantastic saves during the match and had spared further blushes for the women of steel.

    Motherwell: Hunter, Knox, Rolph, Rafferty, Roberts, Crilly, Montgomery, McEachran, Rice, Adams, Gardner (MacLeod).

    Motherwell face Glasgow City

    Motherwell face Glasgow City

    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.

    THE OPPOSITION

    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’.

    POSITION

    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.”
