    Well face tough Hibernian test

    Motherwell will face a stern challenge to make it three wins on the spin when they face Hibernian at Peffermill on Wednesday night.

    After moving within two points of a place in the top half of SWPL1 following victories over Stirling University and Forfar Farmington, the weekend’s SWPL Cup winners lie in wait.

    Successive wins for Donald Jennow’s side has created some much needed breathing space over the bottom two sides in the league and they will now aim to build some momentum.

    There are just two more games until the league breaks up for the summer break, with attentions turning to the national side and their participation at the World Cup in France.

    Before that the women of steel have two tough fixtures in five days. After the visit to face Hibs, who currently occupy third spot, they will take on Celtic, who sit second.

    Kick off at Peffermill is at 7.30pm.

    The Opposition

    Hibs come into the fixture in high spirits, having captured their fourth successive SWPL Cup triumph by defeating Glasgow City on penalties in their last outing.

    Despite the high of yet more cup success for Grant Scott’s side, they will be keen to eradicate the memories of a heavy loss to Celtic in their previous league match.

    That defeat left Hibs in third place in SWPL1, five points off leaders Glasgow City, who have played a game less.

    There surely can be no more slip-ups from the Hibees if they are to deny City a 13th successive league title.

    Position

    Hibernian: SWPL1 – third – 19 points

    Motherwell: SWPL1 – fifth – 11 points

    What They Said

    Motherwell head coach Donald Jennow is hoping his side can take the positives from the victories over Stirling and Forfar into the match.

    A dominant performance at Ravenscraig earlier in the season saw the Hibees emerge 4-0 winners and Jennow is urging his side to maintain their focus.

    “The aim is exactly the same as in previous weeks,” Jennow said. “We need to continue to improve and learn as a group.

    “We will need to be completely focused for the duration of the game as Hibs don’t let you off with mistakes.

    “Our aim will to be disciplined and organised, but also take the greater level of composure we have shown on the ball recently into this game.

    “When you play teams like Hibs, the game feels faster, but we are well capable of using the ball well.

    “If we do that then it gives us a chance to force a mistake or two of our own.”

    Setting the scene on Livingston

    Setting the scene on Livingston

    Motherwell host Livingston in the final Ladbrokes Premiership match of the 2018/19 season on Saturday.

    Here’s an early look ahead to the match. Kick off is at 12.30pm.

    What’s at stake

    Both teams are locked in their finishing positions going into the game.

    Motherwell will be in eighth, having lost the chance to take seventh with defeat at St Johnstone last weekend.

    Livingston can get to within a point of their opponents with victory, but are guaranteed ninth spot.

    Tale of the tape

    The two teams have already met four times in 2018/19 – three times in the league and once in the Betfred Cup.

    Danny Johnson’s goal was the difference in the first encounter in the cup early in the season, before a 1-1 draw at Fir Park in the first league game.

    Livi then ran out 2-0 winners at home in the Premiership, before a 3-0 convincing win for Stephen Robinson’s side at home in February.

    Motherwell lose at St Johnstone

    Motherwell conceded seventh spot to St Johnstone in the Ladbrokes Premiership, as they lost 2-0 to the Saints in Perth.

    Goals from Scott Tanser and Murray Davidson sealed the hosts’ league finish, and means the Steelmen will finish eighth.

    Stephen Robinson named an unchanged team and the visitors started brightly, controlling possession and carving out half chances to try and get ahead.

    On the half hour mark, the clearest chance of all should have fallen to Motherwell. Tanser handled the ball on the line to block Ariyibi’s goalbound effort, but the referee didn’t give it.

    It would be Tanser who would then put his team ahead. Charles Dunne got on the wrong side of Chris Kane on the right side of the box and bundled the striker over.

    Tanser then picked his spot to make it 1-0, putting the ball into the far right bottom corner just outside of the reach of Mark Gillespie.

    Motherwell went in at the break arguably the better side but that changed in the second half, as the Saints doubled their advantage early on.

    A swift counter attack left Grimshaw with a miracle to perform to somehow stop a cross into the box, having to contend with two St Johnstone players bearing down on goal.

    The defender did his best, but Davidson used all his experience to steer home the second.

    Motherwell changed their shape and brought on attacking reinforcements to try and salvage something, but they ultimately failed to carve out the chances required.
