The thought of redemption will have remained firmly in the sights of the women of steel, as Sky Sports Cup action returned to the domestic calendar. Paul Brownlie’s side were left to reflect from the sidelines after their disappointing exit to Montrose last month.
Misfortunes from the penalty spot and an array of squandered opportunities epitomised the women of steel’s troubles on the day, as the hosts cruised to a commanding three-goal advantage.
With a trip to Links Park on the horizon, Motherwell will be looking to finally conclude their misfortunes on the road by securing their second league victory over Montrose this season.
The Tale of the Tape
The brief hiatus from the domestic calendar will have provided the squad with much needed time to reflect and recuperate from their frustrating defeat to Aberdeen at K-Park, with the hosts dominance in possession and goalscoring opportunities failing to be reflected accurately in the scoreline.
Despite maintaining the fourth-best home record throughout the 2023/24 campaign, behind only title-chasers Rangers, Celtic and Glasgow City – Motherwell have struggled to replicate such dominance on the road, with the squad yet to achieve their first points.
The visitors previous league meeting with Sunday’s opponents saw the women of steel secure a comfortable 3-1 victory in East Kilbride, as Katie Rice, Louisa Boyes and Kaela McDonald-Nguah all found the target.
The Gable Endies saw their Sky Sports Cup journey come to a conclusion last weekend, with Partick Thistle netting two quickfire goals late on to cancel out Louise Brown’s second half opener.
In contrast to Motherwell’s frustrations on the road, Montrose sit perilously at the foot of the SWPL home form guide, picking up a solitary point at Links Park in their opening six league encounters.
As both sides seek to address their troubles both home and away, Sunday’s encounter will mark a pivotal moment in the season for both sides.
