    Alexander reacts to friendly win

    Graham Alexander was pleased with his side’s approach to their 0-1 pre-season win over Partick Thistle.

    A second-half strike from American Joe Efford was enough to separate the sides in a clammy afternoon at Firhill.

    However, it was the player’s attitude and their desire to put what they’ve worked on at Dalziel Park into play that pleased the manager the most.

    “I thought the players approached the match in the correct manner,” manager Graham Alexander said.

    “There’s still some things we need to tighten up on, but we didn’t just go out to simply win a game of football, as much as we wanted to do that.

    “We put into play what we have been doing in training and I think that [having a style] is important as it is a long season and the players have to have an idea of how we want to play.”

    Kevin van Veen, Juhani Ojala, Paul McGinn, Scott Fox and Nathan McGinley weren’t in the squad and Alexander revealed the medical staff will have to take another look on Monday ahead of the midweek European match.

    “We’ve taken a few knocks in training and the lads weren’t fit for today, but we’ll assess them on Monday to see if they’ll be able to train and prepare for the game [against Sligo Rovers],” Alexander added.

    “We feel we have got some good competition, but we obviously need everyone as fit as possible. That said, I think the players that played today showed what they can do. We just need to keep working hard to take what we’re doing in training into up coming matches.”

    Partick Thistle 0- 1 Motherwell

    Partick Thistle 0- 1 Motherwell

    Motherwell rounded off their pre-season preparations with a win at Partick Thistle.

    Joe Efford’s strike in the 58th minute was enough in a comfortable win in the west end of Glasgow.

    Graham Alexander started two of his summer recruits; Blair Spittal taking his place in midfield and Josh Morris making up a front three with Efford and Connor Shields, with Kevin van Veen nursing a knock from training.

    There wasn’t much goal mouth action in the first half. Morris saw his shot fire into the side netting after 25 minutes and almost turned supplier ten minutes later when his free-kick from the right was spilled but Jake Carroll’s resulting header crashed back off the post.

    Shields’ half-chance almost ended up breaking the deadlock. The striker didn’t make great contact with a bouncing cross into the box, but it was enough to deceived the Thistle defence who had to rely on Milne to sweep clear as the ball trickled towards goal.

    The Steelmen came out for the second half with Ross Tierney replacing Morris and instantly created two good chances.

    Shields saw his shot flash just wide of the post before Carroll headed Blair Spittal’s free-kick just over the bar.

    ‘Well finally took the lead in the 58th minute as Efford was slid in and kept his cool to fire past Mitchell.

    From then Motherwell were largely comfortable and created a few chances which neither Shields nor Tierney could take.

    A ball down the right-hand channel found Shields and after he drove to the byline, the forward man fired a cross into the danger area where Tierney looked to finish but his effort skewed over the bar.

    Thistle would create little in the closing periods of the game and Motherwell remained in control of proceedings.

    The game would finish 1-0 to Graham Alexander’s men as they now look towards their first competitive match of the campaign in the UEFA Europa Conference League as Irish side Sligo Rovers visit Lanarkshire.

    Friendly victory against Glasgow Women

    Friendly victory against Glasgow Women

    Motherwell showed quality in abundance as they recorded a 7-0 victory against Glasgow Women on Wednesday night. 

    Summer signing Brogan Anderson netted four goals, with London Pollard, Kodie Hay and Kaela McDonald-Nguah getting on the scoresheet.

    Motherwell started on the front foot and got the opener on 17 minutes. Georgie Rafferty sent a long ball towards winger Gill Inglis, who controlled and seen her effort rattle of the post but Pollard was on hand to finish.

    It would be 2-0 not long after the 30 minute mark. After a Motherwell attacked seemed to be over, the ball fell to B.Anderson who had a go from 25-yards out and found the back of the net for her first of the night.

    Two minutes later, it was three. Hay cut inside from the left wing and laced a strike into the top corner with the keeper having no chance of reaching it.

    Half time, 3-0 Motherwell.

    Motherwell looked to continue where they left off and B.Anderson had her second of the game moments into the second period.

    Hay again threatening on the left wing had a shot which the Glasgow Women keeper saved but B.Anderson followed in for a comfortable finish.

    B.Anderson got her hat-trick on 53 minutes. A defensive mix up from Glasgow Women and the new signing pounced to finish into the net. 5-0.

    On 58 minutes, it was six. B.Anderson was on hand once again as she found the back of the net after a goalkeeping error.

    McDonald-Nguah got her name on the scoresheet for the second time in three days. Substitute Jemma Hughes retained possession on the edge of the box, laid the ball to the side to McDonald-Nguah who finished emphatically to round off a good nights work for Paul Brownlie’s team.
