    Manager hails pace and quality

    Stephen Robinson celebrated the injection of pace and invention into his Motherwell side, after opening the 2019/20 campaign with a 3-0 win at Queen of the South.

    Liam Donnelly’s penalty broke the deadlock after Jermaine Hylton was felled, before Sherwin Seedorf and Hylton added late goals to put more emphasis on the manner of the victory.

    Motherwell hit three at Queens

    Motherwell got off to the perfect start in the Betfred Cup group stage, with a 3-0 win at Queen of the South.

    Liam Donnelly, Sherwin Seedorf and Jermaine Hylton all netted to ensure all three points returned back up the M74.

    But with just 18 seconds gone, it was back to the drawing board as Christopher Long took a severe blow to the face, forcing the change with James Scott.

    The youngster had Motherwell’s best chance of the first half, being sprung in behind the Queen’s defence. But goalkeeper McCrorie was alert and quick to get out and block the shot at source.

    The hosts also carved out chances. A goalbound strike from Murray was blocked at close quarters by Liam Donnelly. Shouts went up for handball, but referee Don Robertson was unmoved.

    Stephen Dobbie also saw a shot from close range as the half wore on, finding Mark Gillespie alert to save.

    It took 10 minutes in the second half for Motherwell’s best chance to that point. Semple’s corner from the left was flat and guided, and met by Charles Dunne.

    His header crashed off the crossbar and, with it still shaking, Donnelly’s headed rebound was nodded off the line.

    Jermaine Hylton and Sherwin Seedorf were introduced early and the former had a big penalty shout with 22 minutes remaining. The referee ruled he had been hacked down outside the box, however, and the subsequent free kick went to waste.

    The deadlock was then broken. Hylton was felled in the box, and Liam Donnelly stepped up to fire home the first goal of the season.

    The dam then burst, with the new boys at the heart of it with five minutes to go.

    Seedorf burst in from the left, before smashing the ball into the net for his first professional goal.

    Then, in stoppage time, Hylton made room and fired an unstoppable effort into the top corner from 25 yards.

    Motherwell: Gillespie, Tait, Gallagher, Dunne, Carroll, Donnelly, Campbell, Semple, Cole (Seedorf), Ilic (Hylton), Long (Scott).

    Christian Ilic signs

    Christian Ilic signs

    Croatian winger Christian Ilić is Stephen Robinson’s ninth recruit of the summer.

    The versatile 22-year-old is comfortable on either flank and appeared as a substitute for ‘Well in a pre-season game at Darlington last weekend.

    He has signed a one-year contract with the club and has been given the number 16 shirt.

    “Christian brings us another pacy option to play anywhere across the forward three,” manager Stephen Robinson said.

    “He’s already got top flight experience in a strong league and has impressed us with his ability on the ball, the intelligent runs he makes and his desire to be here and develop.”

    Ilić was born and brought up in Friesach in Austria, near the Slovakian border, to Croatian parents.

    He played youth football for a number of local sides before signing for Sportclub Weiz in 2012.

    He earned a move to TSV Hartberg two years later, making his debut in the second tier at the age of 18 and helped them to the Austrian Bundesliga.

    Last season he made 17 appearances in the top tier, scoring twice.

    Stephen Robinson speaks ahead of Queens

    The Motherwell boss discusses his summer transfer business, a short pre-season and trying to navigate a tricky Betfred Cup group.

    The Steelmen face Queen of the South on Saturday in the opening match in the four-game group stage.

    On the short pre-season break

    “We’re back very quickly. You don’t get much of a break now in modern football.

    “It’s only been four weeks our boys altogether had off. So we are back at it.

    “We’ve enjoyed being back. A lot of new faces. A lot of energy about the place and looking forward to the season.”

    On transfer business

    “The players might have had four weeks off but myself and Martin Foyle certainly didn’t.

    “And that’s the job. You have to get in before people. I believe we’ve done well. we’ve signed a lot of exciting players.

    “We’re trying to continue on what we did  on the last six months of the season. We’ve signed wide players with pace and energy. I am looking forward to the season.

    “I think I am done. I’m knackered. I can’t sign anymore. No, we are very close to being done.

    “We still have a little bit left if something came up that suited us, perhaps in the forward area.

    “It’s massive. That’s the hard bit. You do lose players. We lost all our wide players So that was the biggest recruitment for us – wide areas. We’ve done that. I believe we’ve done that well.

    “Hopefully we will hit the ground running. We did that two years ago when we brought in a lot of bodies.

    “They’ve integrated well, all the new boys. What we have is a good base of boys that have been here quite a while. worked under myself and Keith for a long time.

    “They keep that atmosphere going, they keep that drive going. They are integrated very, very quickly.

    “One of the new boys said he feels like he’s been here a year. That’s a good positive from my mindset.”

    On facing Queen of the South

    “Cup competitions come so early in pre-season. We are still in the middle of pre-season.

    “We’ve been very successful in the last few years. We’ve got to the final and quarter final in this competition.

    “It has set us up for relative success. But it is a tough time of year. People are still finding their form and fitness. New players are still coming in and getting integrated.

    “But everyone is in the same boat. Queen of the South will be the same as us.

    “The astroturf pitch down there, we just have to deal with. We have to go and be positive. Make sure we take the game to them. Press high up the pitch and take the game to them to try get a result.”
