    Declan Gallagher called into Scotland squad

    Declan Gallagher is in the Scotland squad for the forthcoming matches with Cyprus and Kazakhstan.

    The Motherwell defender, a standout performer for the Steelmen this campaign, was a call-up to Steve Clarke’s squad for their last double header with Russia and San Marino.

    The 28-year-old didn’t win his first cap on that occasion, but that chance could now come in the coming games.

    Scotland travel to take on Cyprus on Saturday, 16 November, before taking on Kazakhstan at Hampden Park on Tuesday, 19 November.

    Reserves win at Kilmarnock

    Reserves win at Kilmarnock

    Motherwell came from behind to claim victory in the SPFL Reserve League at Kilmarnock on Monday.

    Goals from Jamie Semple and James Scott, cancelling out Rory McDonald’s early free kick, gave all three points to the visitors.

    Several first-team squad members featured at Rugby Park, with Richard Tait, Barry Maguire, Christian Ilic and Christy Manzinga joining the goal scorers.

    But it would be the hosts who would take the early advantage, after Scott was ruled to have fouled his man 20 yards from goal.

    McDonald stepped up and curled home to give Kilmarnock the lead.

    Kilmarnock were to be thwarted by PJ Morrison and Jack Brown as they pushed close to extending their lead, but had to settle for a 1-0 half-time advantage.

    Motherwell came out the stronger and, shortly after Scott hit the crossbar with a header, Semple restored parity.

    His quick free-kick was out to Manzinga on the left-hand side. The forward then returned the pass to Semple on the edge of the box, who curled his shot past the dive of the Kilmarnock ‘keeper and into the net with 62 minutes played.

    Four minutes later, Motherwell were ahead.

    Morrison’s long ball forward wasn’t dealt with by the defender, allowing Scott to nick in and chip the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper. He then collected the ball on the other side, before knocking the ball in.

    Kilmarnock then went close late on as they chased an equaliser, but Motherwell held on to get a win under their belt.

    Motherwell: Morrison, Tait, Hussain, Devine, Brown, Maguire, Cornelius, Semple, Ilic, Scott, Manzinga.

    Subs: Hemfrey, MacIver, Hale, Muir, Kettings, Trialist.

    Leanne Thomas resigns as director

    Leanne Thomas has stepped down from her role on the board of directors of Motherwell Football Club.

    Leanne became a director in January 2015, at the same time as her father Les Hutchison purchased the club from John Boyle.

    Following the repayment of the outstanding debt owed to Les last week, Leanne has now stepped back from her role.

    Everyone at Motherwell FC would like to sincerely thank Leanne for her unstinting contribution at Fir Park over the last four-and-a-half years. We wish her well for the future.

    Next up: Celtic

    Next up: Celtic

    Motherwell are on the road again this weekend, with a trip to face Celtic on Sunday.

    It’s first against third in the Ladbrokes Premiership, as Stephen Robinson’s side look to get a positive result in Glasgow.

    Kick off at Celtic Park is at 3pm.

    Tale of the tape

    Celtic booked their place in the Betfred Cup final with a thumping 5-2 victory over Hibernian at the weekend.

    That marked their fifth straight win, having also seen off Ross County, Lazio, Aberdeen and St Mirren with 19 goals scored along the way, and three conceded.

    Neil Lennon’s side are in Rome on Thursday evening to take on Lazio again, before the visit of the Steelmen at the weekend.

    Motherwell kept third position in the Premiership with a 2-1 home win over Livingston at the weekend, following up from the same result against Kilmarnock last midweek.

    Head to head

    Celtic are unbeaten in the fixture in the last 15, winning 12 and drawing three and including two cup final victories over Stephen Robinson’s men.

    Motherwell’s last victory against Celtic came in Glasgow in December 2015, when a Louis Moult double cancelled out Nir Bitton’s opener to give the visitors a 2-1 win.

    Defeat for Motherwell in SWPL1

    Defeat for Motherwell in SWPL1

    Motherwell’s hopes of finishing fifth in SWPL1 ended on Sunday, after a 3-1 defeat to Rangers.

    The women of steel had the lead at Ravenscraig early on through Katie Rice’s long-range effort.

    But they were pegged back to guarantee a sixth-placed finish in the eight-team league.

    The objective from the off was to stay in the league, and Donald Jennow’s side matched up against their opponents well in a keenly-contested affair.

    But after Rice’s strike in the 19th minute, Gregory Vignal’s side struck through Hannah Robertson and Brogan Hay to go in at the interval ahead.

    Rosie McQuillan added the third in the second half, as Rangers took all three points.

    Motherwell travel to take on champions Glasgow City next Sunday in the final game of the SWPL1 season.

    While it is still mathematically possible to catch fifth-placed Spartans on points, with a three-point gap, their goal difference is 22 goals superior.

    Motherwell: Hunter, Doran-Barr, Inglis, Crosbie, Connor, Cairney, McEachran, Adams, Rice, Gardner, Callaghan.

    Rangers visit Motherwell in SWPL1

    It’s Motherwell’s final home game of the 2019 SWPL1 season on Sunday, as Rangers visit Ravenscraig.

    The women of steel are still pursuing fifth spot with two games left in the campaign.

    Kick-off is at 2.30pm at Ravenscraig.

    LEAGUE POSITIONS

    Motherwell – sixth in SWPL1 – 19 points

    Rangers – fourth in SWPL1 – 28 points

    WHAT THEY SAID

    “We showed character last week to come from behind to claim a point,” head coach Donald Jennow said.

    “Off the back of five defeats against some of the strongest teams in the division, it was important we got back on track.

    “With two games to go, we are still in with a chance of taking fifth spot. The onus is on us to get the points to put us in with a chance of achieving that goal.

    “Whatever happens, our objective was to stay in this division and be competitive. We secured our status a long time ago now, and we have gone a long way towards becoming an established top flight side.

    “Making it to fifth spot would be another achievement, and we will continue to push for it in our two final games.”
