    Reserves kick off cup campaign with a win

    Reserves kick off cup campaign with a win

    Motherwell opened their Reserve League Cup Group A campaign with a convincing 4-1 win over Morton at Cappielow.

    Goals from Yussuf Hussain, Ross MacIver and a Christian Ilic double ensured last year’s finalists got off to the perfect start.

    Maurice Ross was able to call on the likes of Ilic and Craig Tanner for the cup tie, whist Livingstone, Barry Maguire, David Devine and Dean Cornelius also have top-team experience.

    Motherwell made a positive start to the match with a low Ilic shot and a MacIver effort over the bar setting the early tone for the afternoon.

    The hosts didn’t heed that warning though as the Steelmen got themselves ahead with their next attack.

    An impressive passing combination allowed Tanner to collect deep in Morton territory. He turned well before whipping a ball across goal where Ilic was on hand to head home from close range.

    The Steelmen had a golden opportunity to double their advantage ten minutes later, when Ilic was brought down inside the box for a penalty.

    Cole Starrs stepped up, but his low effort was expertly turned away by Sam Ramsbottom in the home goal.

    ‘Well continued to dominate and the second was inevitable. It came via a set-piece just before the half hour mark, Tanner’s dipping corner was prodded home at the back post by Hussain.

    Tanner was proving a threat from deep and he almost got his name amongst the scorers himself, his shot deflected on route after good hold up play by Starrs inside the area.

    He was in the mix again shortly after, twisting and turning in the box only for his low shot to be turned away by Ramsbottom.

    Just before the break, Ilic had a wonderful chance to make it three, when he found himself one-on-one with Ramsbottom. The Morton keeper did well to stand up and got a vital block before it was hooked clear.

    The second half started much as the same the first ended, with the Fir Parkers on top. Tanner’s low pass had Starrs haring away from the last ‘Ton defender, but Ramsbottom was again equal to the low shot.

    Incredibly, with their first real attack of the afternoon, Morton reduced the arrears by one. A long, hopeful punt over the top had Shaun Rodgers racing clear. He used the bounce of the ball to loop it smartly over Morrison and into the net.

    Motherwell recovered from that bow and could and perhaps should’ve reestablished their two goal advantage, but Starrs could only turn a Tanner corner wide of target under no pressure.

    Findlay Cook was introduced in place of Starrs for the last ten minutes and his first touch was to send a fizzing shot over the cross bar from the edge of the box.

    ‘Well wrapped up the game in the dying minutes when Ross MacIver got on the end of a Livingstone cross from the left to bundle home at the second attempt, before Ilic grabbed his second of the game, slamming home after Cornelius’ tempting ball from the left.

    Motherwell: Morrison, Brown (McDonald), Livingstone, Hussain, Devine, Maguire, Cornelius, MacIver, Tanner, Ilic, Starrs (Cook)

    Stuart McKinstry joins Leeds United

    Stuart McKinstry joins Leeds United

    Young midfielder Stuart McKinstry’s move to English Championship side Leeds United has now been completed.

    An academy product, the 16-year-old midfielder turned professional back in the autumn of 2018, and had been tracked by a number of English clubs since.

    The Scotland Under 17 international made rapid progress over the last 12 months, earning him a place on the first team bench at the tail end of last year, as ‘Well hosted Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership

    His development and performances for the academy teams alerted a number of clubs south of the border.

    Marcelo Bielsa’s side agreed a compensation package that will see Motherwell receive a guaranteed fee with the opportunity to earn further, should he progress and/or Leeds sell him in the future.

    “In an ideal world, we would have like to have kept Stuart for a bit longer and integrated him into the first-team pool,” chief executive Alan Burrows said.

    “However, we were also understanding of the opportunity this was for Stuart and importantly, his desire to move there.

    “The deal was actually agreed with Leeds back in the spring and Stuart has been down there with his new club since this summer. But it has taken a significant amount of time to complete the paperwork and receive the necessary clearance, which was finally concluded last week.

    “Stuart is a local boy who has been brought up to be immersed in Motherwell Football Club. We thank him for all his efforts and endeavour whilst coming through the ranks and wish him every success in his time at Elland Road.”

    Donald Jennow’s side welcome their third tier opponents to Ravenscraig in the fourth round of the competition. Kick off is at 2.30pm.

    Tale of the tape

    Motherwell progressed in the Scottish Cup in their last outing two weeks ago, defeating Partick Thistle 2-0 after extra time.

    Their other game since returning from the summer break ended 0-0 at home against Spartans the week prior.

    Inverness CT won 5-0 at Hutchison Vale last weekend to progress, defeating second-tier opposition.

    Manager sees cup chance to boost confidence

    Donald Jennow’s team are undefeated since returning from the summer break, but the coach is refusing to take a game against third-tier opposition lightly.

    “We have to guard against taking Inverness lightly,” he said.

    “It’s not in the make-up of our team in any case, and we will have to perform at our best to progress in the competition.

    “They’ve scored 59 goals in 14 league games this season. That underlines that we will face a confident opponent.”

    Motherwell claim derby win at Hamilton

    Motherwell claim derby win at Hamilton

    Motherwell bounced back from two defeats to comprehensively win the first Lanarkshire derby of the season.

    Two goals inside the first 21 minutes, from returning captain Peter Hartley and a seventh of the season from Liam Donnelly put ‘Well in charge. And although Ross Cunningham pulled one back for Accies, Chris Long’s goal just after half-time eased the Steelmen to the most comfortable three points.

    Although Accies played with 10 men for 70 minutes, the Fir Park men dominated the match from start to finish, with a number of impressive performers in claret and amber.

    Following their Betfred Cup exit, Stephen Robinson shuffled his starting line-up. In the absence of Richard Tait, Liam Grimshaw kept his place on the right, but Peter Hartley was recalled to the centre of defence, with Charles Dunne moving to the left.

    Having interchanged his strikers in the fixtures so far, James Scott and Christopher Long were given the chance to be paired in the attack.

    Facing the 1500 ‘Well fans behind Owain Fon-Williams goal the Steelmen were on the front foot from the kick-off.

    After six minutes Sherwin Seedorf played the ball in front of Liam Polworth and his low effort from the edge of the box produced a decent save from the Accies ‘keeper.

    A few minutes later and a steady build up on the right involving Seedorf, Alan Campbell and Liam Grimshaw, ended with Polworth pulling his shot wide of goal.

    The signs were good for the visitor’s and Seedorf was again at the heart of the action but from four yards in front of goal he failed to connect with Scott’s cross from the left.

    The pressure on the home goal and in the 15th minute it had a lucky escape when Hartley got his head to Polworth’s corner only to see the ball rebound from the crossbar and forced over for another corner. From the third consecutive flag kick Harley was finally rewarded stooping to send the ball looping into the net to give his side a deserved lead.

    Five minutes later and ‘Well doubled their lead and it was a double whammy for Accies.
    Another swift move on the right found Campbell driving for goal and when the ball was deflected across the six yard box, Scott rose to head the ball towards goal.

    Jamie Hamilton, on the line, stretched out an arm to deny the striker a goal, conceding a penalty and earning the young Accies defender a red card.

    Donnelly buried the resultant spot kick under the diving ‘keeper to put the Fir Park two ahead and in the driving seat.

    However, that two goal advantage lasted only two minutes. In Accies first attack a ball into a packed box connected with Hartley’s raised hand – leaving Ross Cunningham to ram the resultant penalty high past Mark Gillespie.

    It did little to change the pattern of the game, though, as Motherwell made the most of the extra man to dictate the remainder of the first half.

    However, despite dominating possession and pressing Accies into their own area, ‘Well failed to extend their lead. Indeed, apart from Grimshaw’s crisp 30 yard drive which forced a fine save from Fon-Williams the Hamilton ‘keeper was largely untroubled.

    While you suspected that ‘Well might pay for not capitalising on their advantage – it took the visitor’s only five minutes into the second half to take a firm grip of the game.

    Chris Long collected at the ball at left hand corner of the 18 yards box and then dribbled the ball all the way to the other corner of the box, before firing a low shot beyond Fon-Williams and inside the ‘keeper’s right hand post to make it 3-1.

    After a decent contribution Seedorf made way for Jermaine Hylton, who was given just over 30 minutes to further torment an overworked Accies defence.

    Long might have nicked another when Dunne’s inviting cross from the left sped across the six yard box narrowly in front of the inrushing ‘Well striker.

    After 65 minutes Devante Cole took over from Scott who had impressive afternoon cutting in from the wide areas.

    With Motherwell in complete control and Gillespie yet to make a save the visitor’s were still chasing another gaol in the final five minutes.

    Good work from the tireless Long ended with his angled shot being deflected beyond the post and the waiting Cole.

    In another break the ball found its way to Hylton was beaten by Fon-Williams but by that stage the points were safely heading back across the Clyde.
