    Manager looks ahead to the derby

    Stephen Robinson says his side have what it takes to recover from last week’s cup exit in the Lanarkshire derby on Saturday.

    Here’s what he told the broadcast media ahead of the match.

    On bouncing back

    “You have to point out where people have made mistakes. It was simple things we got punished for.

    “We’ve lost one game of football. Up until the Hearts game, everyone had been singing our praises on how well we’d done. Even against Celtic.

    “It’s one game. We have to put that into perspective. It’s a very young squad of players that are going to learn. Players respond to encouragement.

    “They respond to people being positive. Not being negative. We talked to them after the game.

    “We talked to them on Saturday morning. We showed them things they can be better at.

    “From then it’s been constant encouragement. Constant positivity around the place. That’s shown in the training performances this week.”

    On building momentum

    “We are very much at the start of what we are trying to do. As a management staff, you don’t react to one bad game and that’s it, they are the worst player in the world. Or the worst manager in the world.

    “That doesn’t happen here. It didn’t happen here last year when we had a run of nine to ten games. And it didn’t happen the year before.

    “We keep building, we keep being positive. Perspective is needed. It’s one game with a young side. You look round and we’ve got three 18 year olds on the bench. We’ve got a 19 year old starting up front.

    “That’s what we are. They will go up and down. But what they need is constant encouragement. Constant coaching and showing them where they’ve gone wrong.

    “I’ve got real belief in the players we’ve got here. They don’t go from the first five games where they are fantastic, and it’s great recruitment, and it’s a fantastic season ahead to one bad game where it’s not going to be that.

    “There has to be somewhere level in between. We won’t get too up with winning and we won’t get too down with losing.”

    On facing Hamilton

    “It will be physical. It always is. We’ve got people who will be very much up for that. We’ll demand that and we will drive that.

    “But also being brave means getting the ball down and playing. Continuing to do what we’ve done in circumstances when it is 0-0, when you’re 1-0 down, that’s bravery as well.

    “[It’s] showing that competitive side off the ball but also with the ball.”

    Saturday sees the first Lanarkshire derby of the 2019/20 season, as Motherwell make the short trip to take on Hamilton Academical.

    Here’s what you need to know ahead of the match.

    Tale of the tape

    Motherwell have won two, lost two and drawn one of their last five matches.

    In the league, Stephen Robinson’s side drew on the opening day at Livingston, before a home defeat to Celtic.

    Hamilton meanwhile lost 3-0 on the opening day at Ross County, before a 2-0 home win over Kilmarnock on matchday two.

    Both sides exited the Betfred Cup last weekend, with the ‘Well losing to Hearts and Accies losing at Kilmarnock.

    Head to head

    Motherwell have won three of the last five derby encounters between the two sides, with one draw and one Accies win in the mix.

    The last match came at New Douglas Park, as Marius Ogboe’s late equaliser cancelled out David Turnbull’s opener in a 1-1 draw.
