    Show racism the red card

    Motherwell Football Club are supporting Show Racism the Red Card’s fortnight of action.

    The campaign, which runs from 4-20 October, has been running in Scotland for 16 years. Our support underlines our joint commitment across the sport at the highest level of Scottish football to eradicate racism and discrimination of any form from our game.

    We will also show our support at our game with St Mirren on Saturday, 5 October, joining our fellow clubs in calling for an end to racism in football and society. Players in over 40 European countries will also be involved in similar events.

    We urge fans to continue to support the anti-racism message. It is the responsibility of us all to ensure that it is carried out beyond this fortnight and beyond football.

    Motherwell Football Club condemns all forms of racism. Racist behaviour will not be tolerated within the club.

    Show Racism the Red Card are working within grassroots football, community groups, schools, the police and prison service to ensure that going forward, Scottish society and Scottish football is fair, inclusive and accessible for all.

    Football is a sport that is followed by people across the world and football matches should be an enjoyable experience for all, whatever their background. We all have a part to play in challenging racism in football and society.

    You can follow Show Racism the Red Card on Twitter @SRtRCScotland, on Facebook or at their website at theredcard.org.

    Reserves lose at Dundee United

    Reserves lose at Dundee United

    A youthful Motherwell reserve side lost out 4-1 at Dundee United in the Reserve League on Monday.

    Maurice Ross’ side acquitted themselves well but the experience in the ranks of the hosts ultimately told.

    A double for Cammy Smith, and further goals for Louis Appere and Darren Watson, were enough to overcome the visitors, who netted at 3-0 through Jamie Semple’s long-range effort.

    Motherwell took time to get into the game and were punished with 22 minutes on the clock. A headed clearance by Sam Muir didn’t have much distance, and Smith did well to crash a volley home from 20 yards.

    Hale and Manzinga both had chances soon after, before the hosts doubled their advantage on the half-hour mark..

    With calls for offside from the ‘Well defence, Appere got in behind and netted, despite PJ Morrison getting something on it.

    MacIver and Manzinga again had chances in the first period before with the latter also had a succession of efforts kept out early in the second 45.

    The striker had the ball in the net during a long spell of Motherwell dominance, but his steered effort from Cornelius’ shot came with him in an offside position.

    United would get another on the counter against the run of play in the 58th minute. Smith found room and although his initial shot was saved, he turned in the rebound past Morrison.

    The Steelmen got the goal their play deserved with 25 minutes remaining. Semple found room from 25 yards and crashed a shot off the crossbar and over the line.

    Sensing the chance to get a foothold back in the game, Well continued to push. But they were to be undone on the counter when the trialist defender hauled down Watson in the area.

    The substitute forward picked himself up to fire home the penalty with 10 minutes left.

    Motherwell: Morrison, Cornelius, Muir, Trialist, Brown, Semple (McGuigan), Kettings, Hale, MacIver, Starrs (McSwegan), Manzinga.

    Subs not used: Connolly.

    Motherwell lose out to Hibernian

    Motherwell lose out to Hibernian

    Motherwell battled bravely as their unbeaten run came to an end against Champions League participants Hibernian in SWPL1 on Sunday.

    With Donald Jennow’s side set to face the Edinburgh side in the Scottish Cup semi-finals, the match at Ravenscraig was a rehearsal and a chance to pick up a positive result against one of the nation’s top teams.

    The visitors always prove tough opponents, but the women of steel’s performance arguably merited more than the 2-0 defeat.

    After having a number of first half chances, Motherwell would be undone just after the half hour mark. A ball over the top was met by Colette Cavanagh, who was able to knock the ball into the net.

    Having more than held their own in the first 45, the second half started in disappointing fashion as Hibs doubled their lead.

    A free-kick was well saved, but Cavanagh was on hand to tee up Chelsea Cornet to fire home.

    The visitors had chances to extend their lead, but Motherwell more than held their own in a dogged second half performance.

    ‘Win shows character of this side’

    “We can play a lot better. So to come here and get the win shows the character of the side.”

    Stephen Robinson was happy to leave St Johnstone with the victory after a dogged performance in Perth.

    Motherwell win at St Johnstone

    Motherwell ground out a 1-0 win at St Johnstone to go third in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

    Devante Cole’s goal, and a penalty save from Mark Gillespie, made the difference in a dogged performance by the visitors.

    Stephen Robinson made one enforced change from the team which lost to Ross County, with Richard Tait coming in for the suspended Jake Carroll.

    After a scrappy start, Motherwell should have had the lead with 15 minutes played.

    James Scott’s driving run to the byline saw him flash the ball across the face of goal, where Cole was waiting.

    With the ball slightly behind him, he managed to scoop his shot over the bar.

    He would make up for his error with two minutes left in the half. Liam Polworth’s corner was met brilliantly by Declan Gallagher at the back post, with his knock down met by Cole to sweep into the net.

    St Johnstone came out in the second half determined to arrest a run which had seen them fail to win in their opening six league matches.

    After big shouts for a penalty when Stevie May went down in the area, they would get one with 10 minutes gone in the second half.

    Murray Davidson was taken out in the air by Richard Tait, presenting Scott Tanser with the chance to equalise from the spot.

    Gilliespie had proved Tanser’s nemesis last season from 12 yards, and the goalkeeper would keep up his outstanding penalty save record, getting down to claw away the kick.

    The hosts continued to push and push, as Motherwell had to dig in to ensure they didn’t surrender the lead.

    Liam Donnelly’s stoppage-time red card for a stamp on Christopher Kane came too late to make a difference for the hosts, as Motherwell moved to third with the win.

    Motherwell: Gillespie, Grimshaw, Hartley, Gallagher, Tait, Donnelly, Campbell, Polworth, Scott (Ilic) Seedorf (Hylton), Cole (Long).

    Subs: Carson, Maguire, O’Hara, Mugabi.
