    ‘Well make it two wins from two

    ‘Well make it two wins from two

    Motherwell recorded their second SWPL1 victory in the space of a week as they defeated Forfar Farmington 2-0 at Ravenscraig.

    Katie Rice headed home the opener after 19 minutes and Chelsea McEachran secured the three points when she calmly slotted home with nine left on the clock.

    Right from the start Motherwell threatened the Forfar goal.

    The ball was worked out to Lori Gardner by Chelsea McEachran who took a first time shot in an attempt to lob the keeper. The shot looked like it would dip just under the bar, but it smashed off the woodwork and subsequent post to deny ‘Well the perfect start.

    The women of steel enjoyed most of the early possession, with further attempts Beth McLeod and Sarah Crilly continuing to test Fiona McNicoll in the Forfar goal.

    Forfar were repressed to trying to play the ball in behind the ‘Well defence to try and get a sniff of goal but Georgie Rafferty was up to the task of dealing with each attack.

    The deadlock was broken on 19 minutes when Rice powered home a header from a corner. The initial ball into the box wasn’t dealt with by the Forfar defence and the midfielder was there to nod it into the left-hand side of the net.

    Danni McGinley had Forfar’s best chance of the match with 39 minutes on the clock. The forward picked up the ball on the edge of the box, turned and got her shot away heading towards the bottom left corner but Anna Vincenti got down well to make the save.

    Nicola Davidson came inches wide from getting a late equaliser for Forfar, she picked up the bobbling loose ball and opted for the half volley from range, she struck it sweetly, but it landed inches away from the bottom left corner.

    Motherwell were able to withstand the late push from Forfar to see out the half and to go into the break leading 1-0.

    McLeod came close to extending ‘Well’s lead with 60 minutes played. The winger latched onto Claire Adams through ball before taking on the shot from just inside the box, her effort however was straight at the keeper.

    Cassie Cowper and Robyn Smith tested Vincenti with two well hit shots back-to-back between them both. Cowper came agonisingly close with a half volley and Smith was denied by a diving save to protect Motherwell’s slim lead.

    McEachran doubled Motherwell’s lead with 81 minutes played as she picked up the over the top through ball, running in on goal she was able to compose herself to pick her place and slot the ball past the onrushing keeper.

    Spurred on by the goal, Motherwell continued to keep their foot on the gas by continuing to search for another. Finding success by playing down the wings, Steph Knox was the supplier for numerous balls into the box but to no avail.

    The scoreline would remain unchanged as the women of steel would see out the remainder of the match and get an important three points making it two wins on the bounce.

    Motherwell face Forfar Farmington in SWPL1

    Motherwell face Forfar Farmington in SWPL1

    After picking up a highly significant victory at Stirling University last Sunday, Motherwell could take another big step away from the foot of the SWPL1 table when they face Forfar Farmington at Ravenscraig on Sunday.

    Taking all three points at Ochilview lifted the women of steel seven points ahead of Stirling, who currently occupy bottom spot.

    Three points on Sunday would take Donald Jennow’s sides advantage on Farmington in second bottom to the same tally.

    ‘Well will be boosted by the return of skipper Kerry Montgomery from suspension and the midfielder will be determined to lead the side to their first victory of the season at Ravenscraig.

    Kick-off is at 2:30pm.

    THE OPPOSITION

    Forfar Farmington will visit North Lanarkshire on Sunday afternoon determined to record their second victory of the season over Motherwell.

    It’s been a difficult campaign so far for Stevie Baxter’s side, with the 3-2 success over ‘Well back in February their only win from their opening eight league fixtures.

    They currently sit second bottom in SWPL1, three points above Stirling University.

    Their currently situation represents drastically contrasting campaign to the one they enjoyed last season – in which they narrowly missed out on a top four finish by just three points.

    Despite their current struggles, Forfar are a team that carry a threat and their performance in last week’s narrow 4-3 defeat to Celtic serves as a timely reminder of their abilities.

    POSITION

    Motherwell: SWPL1 – sixth – eight points
    Forfar Farmington: SWPL1 – seventh – four points

    WHAT THEY SAID

    Motherwell head coach Donald Jennow hopes his side can build on a big three points when Forfar Farmington visit Ravenscraig.

    A dramatic encounter earlier in the season finished 3-2 for the hosts at Station Park and Jennow is anticipating similar excitement when the two sides meet again on Sunday.

    “Personally I’d settle for a drab game with a better result than our last fixture with Forfar,” he said.

    “Though with both teams scoring goals right now I think that’s unlikely. 

“Forfar have a knack for keeping themselves in games because they carry a goal threat and put teams under pressure.

    “We will have to defend well and make sure we do the basics consistently.”

    Claire Adams is targeting victory on Sunday to put to an end Mothwrwell’s wait for a win at Ravenscraig.

    The women of steel have drawn one and lost two of their three fixtures so far at the indoor venue this season.

    “It’s disappointing not to have picked up a win at Ravenscraig so far this season,” Adams said.

    “Forfar will be a very competitive game on Sunday so it is important for us to play the best we can to try pick up that first home win.”
