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.”
“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.”
