    Motherwell ‘in action’ against Grimsby Town

    There’s a return to action – of sorts – on Tuesday night.

    With no football for the foreseeable future, we’ve entered into a FIFA 2020 tournament with 127 other clubs from around the world.

    Ajax, PSV, Orlando City, Manchester City and AS Roma are amongst the big guns in the competition, organised by English side Leyton Orient.

    Motherwell ‘travel’ to take on Grimsby Town on Tuesday, with a 6pm kick-off. Declan Gallagher is in control of our team.

    Manager: It’s an opportunity for us

    “It’s an opportunity for us. We’re third and we believe we can stay up there.”

    Stephen Robinson previews Friday’s third-place clash with Aberdeen.

    Opposition report: A look at Aberdeen

    Opposition report: A look at Aberdeen

    Aberdeen come to Fir Park on Friday as the race for third spot hots up.

    Here’s a look at our opponents.

    The story so far

    Derek McInnes’ team sit a point behind Motherwell in the Ladbrokes Premiership table with 30 games played.

    The Dons have had experienced mixed fortunes during the course of the season but are still in a strong position. They also have a Scottish Cup semi-final against Celtic on the horizon.

    Coming up against a Hoops side determined to win their fourth successive treble will represent a massive challenge for the Dons, though there’s a sense that his may be a year in which a first piece of silverware in six years and a first Scottish Cup in 30 years makes its way into the trophy cabinet at Pittodrie.

    This season Aberdeen have already come to Fir Park and won convincingly – claiming a 3-0 success back in October, however Motherwell gained a degree of revenge when Liam Donnelly’s header ensured a 1-0 victory for Stephen Robinson’s side at Pittodrie.

    Form guide

    Aberdeen have won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five matches in all competitions.

    An incredible last-gasp, 4-3 win in the Scottish Cup at Kilmarnock kicked off the latest sequence, with victories also coming in the league against St Mirren and Hibernian. A draw with Kilmarnock and a loss to Ross County have also come in the run.

    Three to watch

    Lewis Ferguson

    Scotland Under 21 international Lewis Ferguson played a crucial part in Aberdeen’s comeback win against Hibs last weekend.

    Playing in an advanced midfield role, the former Hamilton youngster has flourished this season – contributing three goals and nine assists in all competitions.

    Still only 20, Ferguson has been included in Scot Gemmill’s squad for the upcoming Euro Under-21 Championship qualifiers with Croatia and Greece

    Niall McGinn

    During his time at Aberdeen, Niall McGinn has shown a real fondness for finding the net against Motherwell.

    The Northern Irish international has scored 11 goals since arriving at Pittodrie in 2012 and was on the scoresheet when the Dons eased to a 3-0 win at Fir Park in October.

    This season McGinn has been involved in almost 40% of Aberdeen’s Scottish Premiership goals, demonstrating his continued attacking threat with six goals and nine assists.

    Curtis Main

    After a somewhat slow start to life in the Granite City, Curtis Main has begun to show some of the qualities that endeared him to the ‘Well support in the early stages of his spell with the Steelmen.

    The English striker has found the net three times in his last games – including the clinching goal in the 3-1 victory over Hibernian.

    During his time at Fir Park, Main scored 14 goals in all competitions with his most notable contribution

    David Turnbull signs contract extension

    David Turnbull signs contract extension

    We’re delighted to announce David Turnbull has signed a one-year extension to his current contract.

    The midfielder, one of the most exciting talents the country has produced in many years, has extended his stay until the summer of 2022.

    The new deal comes shortly after he made his long-awaited comeback from knee surgery.

    The 20-year-old returned ahead of schedule to get the last 20 minutes against St Mirren in his first match back, before also making an appearance from the bench against Heart of Midlothian at the weekend.

    “As soon as I knew I was back, fit and ready to get some game time, I wanted to make sure my contract was sorted,” Turnbull said.

    “I have been here a long time. I feel as if I owe the club and the supporters for the way I have been looked after and treated.

    “I’ve missed most of this season, so this puts us back to pretty much where we were at this stage last year in terms of my deal, giving the club a little more protection as I was coming into the last year of my contract.

    “All my focus now is on spending the next few weeks getting up to full fitness, get back to just playing and enjoying playing football for Motherwell.”

    An academy graduate, Turnbull made a blistering start to his ‘Well career, scoring 15 league goals in just 30 appearances, helping him to sweep the board at the club’s own Player of the Year awards as well as net the Scottish Football Writers’ Young Player of the Year gong.

    His form brought about attention from both sides of the border with club-record bids received from Celtic and Norwich City.

    But he remained a Motherwell player after preventative surgery was required to repair an asymptomatic knee problem.

    “The fact David has agreed to extend his deal says everything about him as a person and about his family,” manager Stephen Robinson.

    “To have such a talented player available to us again and signing for an extended period is significant for the club.”

    You can watch the tale of his comeback in our feature documentary David Turnbull: The comeback story here.

    Next up: Aberdeen

    The fight for third continues with a crucial Friday night match against Aberdeen.

    Kick-off in the Ladbrokes Premiership fixture is at 7.45pm.

    Tale of the tape

    It’s a straight fight for third spot as the two sides go head to head. Motherwell currently occupy the position, a point ahead of their rivals.

    With eight games left, the two will play again after the split but there’s an opportunity either for the Steelmen to go four clear, or fall two points behind.

    Head to head

    Both sides have won on rival turf so far in the 2019/20 season.

    Aberdeen were 3-0 winners at Fir Park back in mid-October, before a Liam Donnelly goal gave the Steelmen a deserved 1-0 victory at Pittodrie in late January.
