    Manager previews Livingston test

    Stephen Robinson discussed getting back to winning form, weekend opponents Livingston and building a winning team on Friday.

    Here’s what the Motherwell manager said to the broadcast media.

    On the win over Kilmarnock

    “It was a different game on Wednesday. We dominated the ball. We dominated the game, which we should have done with 11 men against 10 and we got a very good result against a really resilient Kilmarnock side.

    “We have to be at the top of our game to make sure that the three points doesn’t go to waste and we can continue our good form.

    “I gave the boys a challenge. Can we get six points from these two games?

    “The first hurdle was a tough one. It took a lot of patience to break Kilmarnock down. So we go in with a lot of confidence. We are playing well, but it’s a different task.”

    On Livingston

    “It’s a really big challenge for us again. I’ve got a lot of admiration for Livingston. They take a little bit of stick for how they play.

    “They play by being direct and being physical but you know, I always say that’s fantasy. You play what your players allow you to play. They are very good at what they do and they play a lot more football than people give them credit for.

    “So we’re in for a really tough game and we have to be up for that kind of physical battle.

    “They are effective at what they do. They got a brilliant result away at Hibs and they’ve been picking up results and surprising people. I watched their game against Rangers at Livi and they’re a very good side.

    “I’ve a lot of admiration. They’ve got a real good work ethic about them and boys that give absolutely everything for the manager and the team. So there’s a lot to be admired about them.”

    On building a winning team

    “We’ve got young boys that are improving. They’ve got real belief about them.

    “They play with freedom. Sometimes too much freedom. I’m trying to rein them back at times. Like when you’re 2-1 up with two seconds to go and we’re still bombing forward and we’ve got six in the box against Kilmarnock’s two.

    “There’s a real raw enthusiasm. We play off the cuff at times and there’s a lot of invention.

    “Who knows how far we can go. I’ve got a belief in them. I really believe they’ll keep improving. They are young players taking on board the stuff we are working with them on and it’s exciting times.”

    Ally Maxwell inducted to Hall of Fame

    Ally Maxwell inducted to Hall of Fame

    Ally Maxwell is the second inductee to the Motherwell FC Hall of Fame.

    Having come through the ranks at the club, the goalkeeper made 153 appearances over eight years and was a member of the 1991 Scottish Cup winning squad.

    His performance in that final was vital in the team claiming silverware, soldiering on after a heavy collision with John Clark which was later discovered to have caused a ruptured spleen.

    Joining the club in 1981 from Fir Park Boys Club, he was given his first taste of top team action by Bobby Watson in April 1984.

    He played every minute in the run to the final in 1991, before leaving the club in 1992 for Rangers, via a short loan spell at Bolton Wanderers.

    He will be formally inducted at a dinner at the Bothwell Bridge Hotel on Saturday, 23 November, along with Willie Pettigrew and three others.

    Hosted by Tam Cowan, limited tickets for the event are now on sale online. Adult tickets are £45, with kids tickets £22.

    You can still choose who you want to see in the Hall of Fame through our public vote. Click here to cast your vote.

    Next up: Livingston

    Motherwell host their second Ladbrokes Premiership in four days on Saturday, as Livingston visit Fir Park.

    The Steelmen jumped back up to third in the league with victory over Kilmarnock in midweek.

    Kick off at Fir Park is at 3pm.

    Tale of the tape

    Both sides are in the top six going into the weekend encounter, with Motherwell sitting six points ahead of sixth-placed Livingston.

    Victory over Kilmarnock arrested a two-game losing streak for Stephen Robinson’s side, and took them to six wins out of 11 in the league this season.

    Livingston were 2-0 up at Hibernian on Wednesday night before being pegged back at the death to draw 2-2.

    They’ve won one of their last five – a spectacular 2-0 home win over Celtic. Draws against Hearts and Hibernian followed, as well as away defeats to Hamilton Academical and Kilmarnock.

    Head to head

    Since their return to the top flight in the summer of 2018, Motherwell and Livingston have faced each other six times.

    Five have come in the league, with Motherwell winning two. Two draws and a home win for the Lions have also been registered.

    Motherwell also claimed victory away in the Betfred Cup last season, winning 1-0 in West Lothian.

    Ticket information

    Tickets are available online now or from the Fir Park ticket office. You can also pay at the gate.

    Adult£24 / £20

    Manager: ‘We can still we better’

    “We’re third. We’re really happy with it. But I still think we can be better.”

    Stephen Robinson speaks after Motherwell’s win over Kilmarnock.

    Motherwell go third with win over Kilmarnock

    Motherwell claimed another three points and jumped back to third in the league with a 2-1 home win over Kilmarnock.

    Liam Donnelly and Devante Cole’s goals, sandwiched by a speculative Dominic Thomas effort, got the Steelmen back to winning ways.

    In a return to the more familiar 4-5-1 shape, Jermaine Hylton joined the attack with defender Bevis Mugabi dropping out as the central defence went down from three to two.

    Kilmarnock had pre-match doubts over defender Dario Del Fabro after sustaining a knock at the weekend, but the Italian was named in Angelo Alessio’s starting team. But, late on in the warmup, he was ruled out and Connor Johnson was called in from the bench.

    Motherwell had impressed at Ibrox at the weekend before ultimately losing out, and the confidence from the showing against a bigger-budget side played through into the opening exchanges.

    Positive attacking play at pace had the Fir Park crowd’s spirits raised and the breakthrough would come in slightly controversial circumstances after 15 minutes.

    Christopher Long got the better of the defence as he burst through on goal, with Alex Bruce making a desperate last-ditch lunge to stop him going one-on-one with the goalkeeper.

    The defender felt he got a touch on the ball as Long was scythed down, but referee Don Robertson was right on the spot to award a free kick and show the red card to the Kilmarnock man.

    Motherwell would immediately profit. Donnelly, taking a brief break from the incredible scoring start to the season, rolled the free kick under the wall and into the net, despite goalkeeper Branescu’s best efforts to keep it out.

    The hosts continued to press, harassing Killie as they tried to play out from the back and launching wave after wave of attack.

    Then, with the clock just past the half hour mark, Kilmarnock would get an unexpected route back into the game.

    Thomas cut in from the right and was still a long way from goal as he fizzed a ball in low across the face of goal. Hartley couldn’t get there and the ball sailed into the bottom left corner of the net.

    The pace of Motherwell’s attacking play slowed slightly, even if the urgency didn’t as they continued to press to go in at the break ahead, but the visitors stood firm.

    Stephen Robinson’s men set out with the same attacking intent in the second period and got the goal that would prove decisive with nine minutes of the half gone.

    Jake Carroll got to the byline on the left and, with players queuing up, Cole rose highest to nod the ball into the ground and into the net.

    Motherwell continued to retain the bulk of possession but Kilmarnock continued to threaten on the counter, putting the hearts of the mouths of home supporters on a number of occasions.

    With the clock running down, Mark Gillespie had to keep out a goalbound effort from Eamonn Brophy, and James Scott saw a late counter attacking effort wasted.

    The Steelmen though would hold out, jumping back to third in the league.
