    Liam Kelly: ‘We are in control’

    Vice-captain Liam Kelly says Motherwell are well aware that they are in control of whether they will qualify for the Europa Conference League.

    A win would secure a European spot and the Scotland international is prepared for a tight game with Hearts but knows they are more than capable of getting the job done.

    Form guide

    Motherwell have been struggling for form, after a great first half of the season. Recent wins over St Mirren and Ross County have shown shoots of recovery but Graham Alexander’s men still have work to do to secure a European spot.

    Hearts have been in fine form; the weekend’s defeat to Celtic was their first defeat in 11 games.

    Tale of the tape

    This is the fourth meeting of the two sides this season and all of them have ended 2-0 to the side playing at home.

    The Steelmen will be buoyed by a great three points over Ross County at the weekend as the race for Europe comes to a conclusion.

    Hearts have comfortably secured third place and have a Scottish Cup final to look forward to in just under a fortnight.

    Manager on the win at Ross County

    “We had everyone behind us and we gave the fans something to shout about. We’ve now given ourselves a chance.”

    Ross County 0-1 Motherwell

    Ross County 0-1 Motherwell

    Kevin van Veen climbed out of his sick bed to put Motherwell a step closer to Europe with victory at Ross County.

    The Dutchman won and netted the decisive penalty just four minutes after entering the park in Dingwall, netting the only goal of the game to lift ‘Well into the UEFA Europa Conference League spots with two games to go.

    A squad decimated with illness saw 18 travel to Dingwall, but with Slattery and Van Veen only able to start proceedings from the bench.

    Academy graduate Sam Campbell  – a central defender – also made his first appearance amongst the substitutes.

    County started on the front foot, dominating the early proceedings and carving out the better chances.

    First, Randall stung Kelly’s palms with a long-range drive that the ‘keeper did well to hold.

    Shortly after, Cancola found himself completely unmarked 25 yards out from a corner, but sent his dipping effort over.

    The hosts had all the possession and control until around the half-hour mark, when Motherwell started to find their feet.

    The returning O’Donnell showed his international pedigree getting forward down the right and his cross to the back post was perfect for Efford, only for Randall to nick in and clear at the last.

    Goss saw a 30-yard drive charged down and O’Hara had a left-footed shot go wide, while County responded with a free-flowing passing move at the other end which saw Charles-Cook fire over.

    The two best chances though would fall Motherwell’s way as the half wore on.

    First Efford found himself in behind on the left but saw his shot well parried wide by Laidlaw.

    From the resulting corner, O’Hara sent it deep and Donnelly headed it back across goal towards the waiting crowd.

    Shields rose highest between the bodies, but sent his header over the bar from 10 yards.

    The second half took time to spark to life, although both sides had early chances.

    Cancola again had room to shoot from distance early on, but sent his dipping shot past the post.

    At the other end, Goss’ shot from 25 yards saw shouts for handball on the block in the box waved away.

    Van Veen and Slattery were introduced just as County had a hat-trick of glorious chances to take the lead.

    First, White was played in behind but snatched at his shot with Kelly racing out to gather.

    The goalkeeper then pulled off a world-class save to tip over Spittal’s goalbound effort, shortly before White again got free but saw a shot sail over.

    With 23 minutes to go and with Van Veen only just on the park, the game turned on its head.

    The Dutchman was felled in the area by a lazy tackle, leaving referee David Munro clear in pointing to the spot.

    Van Veen stepped up and cooly dispatched the penalty to send the large away following wild and starting to sing of going on a European tour.

    The game roared on, with ‘Well sitting in and absorbing the pressure while also trying to hit on the counter.

    Five minutes were found in stoppages and Kelly was again to the rescue midway through them, pulling off a miracle save unsighted to tip a goalbound effort round the post at the last second.

    But it wasn’t enough for County to get back in it and Motherwell headed back down the road with three points and European dreams.

    Form guide

    The home side have been in good form, with two losses in their last eight games, both at the hands of league leaders Celtic.

    Motherwell suffered a dent to their European hopes, starting their post-split fixtures with defeats to Rangers and Dundee United.

    Tale of the tape

    County currently sit a point above the Steelmen in the cinch Premiership.

    A win for Motherwell would push them into fifth place, which would be a European spot for next season, with two games left to play.
