    Remembering Phil O’Donnell

    Saturday 29 December 2019 marks 12 years to the day since the untimely passing of Phil O’Donnell.

    Our club captain, a fantastic role model and an incredible man, his loss is still felt as strongly today.

    He remains part of our club and everyday lives. His memory and legacy is all around us at Fir Park, particularly with the Phil O’Donnell Stand and the various mementos of his career which adorn the stadium.

    We ask fans to join in a minute’s applause in the 10th minute of our match with Hamilton Academical to pay tribute to his life.

    Opposition Report: A look at Hamilton

    Hamilton Academical are the final visitors to Fir Park in 2019 on Sunday.

    Here’s a look at our opponents.

    The story so far

    With 15 points from 20 league games this season, Hamilton find themselves second bottom of the Ladbrokes Premiership going into the local derby fixture.

    They are, however, by no means cut adrift. Three points ahead of bottom club Hearts, a positive result at the weekend could see them jump above St Mirren into 10th, and potentially even put themselves two points off eighth in the table.

    Form guide

    Hamilton have won one, drawn three and lost six of their last 10 outings in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

    Their sole victory came at home to Hearts on 21 December, with Mickel Miller and Will Collar netting in a 2-1 victory.

    Draws have came against Livingston, Kilmarnock and Ross County, with losses to Aberdeen twice, Rangers, Celtic, St Mirren and St Johnstone.

    Three to watch

    Alexander Gogic

    Cypriot defender Alexander Gogic has put his injury struggles behind him to establish himself as a crucial part of the Hamilton backline.

    The 25-year-old has played in all but one of Accies’ 19 Scottish Premiership fixtures so far this season – missing out on the 1-0 defeat at Aberdeen following his dismissal in the home loss to St Mirren.

    Such is Gogic’s influence on the team, he was handed the captain’s armband on three occasions this term.

    Brian Easton

    Almost 13 years on from making his professional debut for Hamilton, Brian Easton put pen to paper on a deal that saw him return for a third spell at the club where it all began.

    Progressing through the ranks, Easton racked up over 100 appearances in his first spell with Accies before signing for Burnley in the summer of 2009. A short spell at Dundee followed, before the left-back joined St Johnstone – winning the Scottish Cup in 2014.

    Injury ruled Easton out for 16 months between December 2017 and May 2019 and following his departure from McDiarmid Park, Brian Rice moved quickly to secure his services on a one-year-deal.

    Mickel Miller

    Mickel Miller will have fond memories of coming up against Motherwell, having made his debut for Accies in a 2-0 win over Motherwell back in March 2018.

    It represented an incredible journey for the forward, who progressed through the ranks at Carshalton Athletic in the English seventh tier before signing for Hamilton in January 2018.

    Last season was an impressive one for Miller and we would end it as the club’s top-scorer with eight goals. This season he has found the net on three occasions, the latest of which came in the 2-1 victory over Hearts last weekend.

    Next up: Hamilton

    Motherwell end 2019 with a home match against neighbours Hamilton Academical on Sunday.

    Kick-off at Fir Park is at 3pm.

    Tale of the tape

    With five wins from their last six matches, Motherwell head into the game knowing a win will guarantee third spot in the Premiership going into the winter break.

    Hamilton, meanwhile, have the incentive of trying to keep a distance between themselves and Hearts at the foot of the table, and also potentially climb higher.

    With a three-point gap on the bottom side, they could also leapfrog St Mirren into 10th with a positive result.

    Head to head

    Motherwell are unbeaten in four in the fixture, picking up three wins along the way.

    Earlier in the season, goals from Liam Donnelly, Peter Hartley and Christopher Long sealed an emphatic 3-1 win away from home.

    Highlights as Motherwell win at Ross County

    A debut Ross MacIver goal and a late, late winner from Declan Gallagher seal a comeback 2-1 win for Motherwell at Ross County.

    ‘We thoroughly deserved the three points’

    “We left it late but we thoroughly deserved the three points.”

    Stephen Robinson hails Motherwell’s win over Ross County.

    Motherwell claim late win at Ross County

    Motherwell claim late win at Ross County

    Motherwell left it late but bagged a deserved three points at Ross County.

    Declan Gallagher’s headed winner in stoppage time, following Ross MacIver’s spectacular debut goal, secured a 2-1 victory in Dingwall.

    The visitors, chasing a fifth win in six, passed up a host of chances throughout before taking the deserved win at the death.

    Stephen Robinson made three changes from the team which won at Kilmarnock on Saturday. Liam Grimshaw, Christopher Long and Liam Donnelly dropped out, with Richard Tait, Sherwin Seedorf and Liam Polworth coming in.

    Despite the absentees, Motherwell went on the front foot from the off. Scott had an early free shot blocked by goalkeeper Baxter, Allan Campbell flashed a header wide and Liam Polworth sent a shot just wide of the left post after being set free by Jermaine Hylton.

    But Ross County looked menacing on the counter and grabbed a goal midway through the first half. Sean Kelly’s pinpoint cross from the left was met by the run of Blair Spittal, who headed the ball past Mark Gillespie to put the hosts ahead.

    Motherwell continued to press as the half wore on and came out the front foot again in the second period.

    As the game approached the hour mark, the pendulum swung. Seedorf was felled as he raced through on goal by Lewis Spence, who was sent off for denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity just outside the area.

    The visitors didn’t immediately make the advantage count as they struggled to break down a resolute County, but a substitution sparked the comeback.

    Former Ross County youngster MacIver, on for his debut, picked the ball on the edge of the area. He looked up, saw the opening and found the top right corner of the net in remarkable fashion to equalise.

    Motherwell’s tails were up. But the winner looked like it wouldn’t come until deep in stoppage time.

    Polworth’s corner from the left was perfectly flighted, with Gallagher rising highest at the back post to power home a header and spark scenes of jubilation.
