    Motherwell progress in Scottish Cup

    Christopher Long bagged a hat-trick as Motherwell progressed in the William Hill Scottish Cup with a 3-0 win at Dundee.

    The striker put his team in at the break two to the good, before netting his third late on in the second half to put the result beyond doubt.

    Returning from the winter break after a week in Tenerife, Stephen Robinson was at pains to ensure his team were sharp in order to avoid a repeat of a shock exit at the same stage last season.

    Richard Tait and Peter Hartley replaced Liam Grimshaw and Bevis Mugabi from the team that lost to Hamilton in the final game of 2019.

    Motherwell started bright and immediately went on the front foot, with James Scott going close early on from distance and Liam Polworth testing Jack Hamilton after a fantastic disguised run.

    Then with 22 minutes on the clock, Polworth was scythed down on the edge of the box. Long stood over the free-kick with Jake Carroll, with the striker lashing an effort which took a nick on the way through to finding the net.

    Eight minutes later it was two. Allan Campbell’s bursting run teed up Polworth, who then laid Long in on the left side of the box. Taking the ball in his stride, he placed the ball into the right corner of the net to double Motherwell’s advantage.

    The visitors continued to test their shooting boots. Tait sent a long-range effort narrowly wide, while Long continued to pester.

    Dundee started the brighter in the second half. Mark Gillespie saw his crossbar rattled by McDaid, and substitute Danny Johnson sent a low effort narrowly wide.

    With Motherwell finding it hard to find rhythm on a heavy pitch, Long stepped up to put things beyond doubt with 15 minutes to go.

    Cutting in from the right, he sent a looping shot from outside the box towards the left corner. Goalkeeper Hamilton got behind it, but could only help the ball into the net as he failed to get his hands behind it.

    Long went agonisingly close to a fourth in the dying minutes, flashing an effort wide, but Motherwell’s work was done to book their place in the fifth round.

    Liam Grimshaw signs new contract

    Liam Grimshaw signs new contract

    Liam Grimshaw has extended his contract with Motherwell FC until the summer of 2022.

    The influential defender, who has made 94 appearances across two spells with the club, has put pen to paper on a new two-and-a-half year deal.

    “I’m really happy to be staying at a place I consider to be home,” Grimshaw said of his new deal.

    “Motherwell is a club where I am settled and I’m looking forward to what lies ahead for us as a team.”

    Grimshaw first came to Fir Park on loan from Manchester United in 2015, playing 16 times before a permanent move to Preston North End.

    He would be reunited with his old team-mates in the summer of 2017, signing following his departure from the English club.

    A key member of Stephen Robinson’s side, he has gone on to make a further 78 appearances for the club, starting in both the Betfred Cup and Scottish Cup finals in 2017/18 and nailing down a regular spot in defence.

    “We’re delighted Liam is staying with us,” the Motherwell manager said.

    “He is an all-action and committed player who gives us his all every single day. He’s the perfect professional and a person we’re delighted to have for a longer period of time.”

    Opposition report: A look at Dundee

    Opposition report: A look at Dundee

    Motherwell travel to take on Dundee in the William Hill Scottish Cup fourth round on Saturday.

    Here’s a look at our opponents.

    The story so far

    Sitting inside the play-off spots in the Ladbrokes Championship, Dundee are continuing their promotion push after relegation last campaign.

    City rivals Dundee United look practically out of sight in the automatic promotion spot, sitting 17 points clear of second-placed Inverness CT and 23 clear of their neighbours. But James McPake’s side are in the fight to join them via the play-offs.

    With 20 league games played, they’ve amassed 29 points from eight wins, five draws and seven defeats, scoring 26 and conceding 28 on the way.

    Form guide

    Dundee have won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five matches.

    With their weekend match with Ayr United postponed due to the weather, defeat came in their previous match at home to Inverness CT.

    Before then, an away draw with Dundee United followed wins over Dunfermline Athletic and Partick Thistle, and an away draw at Arbroath.

    Three to watch

    Jordan McGhee

    Since breaking into the Hearts team at the age of 16, Jordan McGhee has enjoyed a career that has seen him rack up over 150 appearances at senior level.

    The 23-year-old made a big impact early in his Hearts career and scored his first goal for the club in only his second substitute appearance – earning the Jambos a 2-1 win over Aberdeen.

    McGhee was able to establish himself in the first-team at Tynecastle before making the switch to Middlesbrough in July 2015. The powerful right-back returned to Scotland when joined Falkirk, before signing for Dundee in June 2019. He has made 25 appearances in all competitions so far for the Dark Blues.

    Graham Dorrans

    After falling out of favour at his boyhood heroes Rangers, Graham Dorrans made what many felt was a surprise move in joining Dundee in the Scottish Championship.

    The midfielder has demonstrated his qualities in his 15 outings so far for the Dees, most notably in the most recent Dundee derby in which he scored the equalising goal – leading to James McPake describing him as ‘far too good’ to be playing in the Championship.

    Dorrans, who has been capped 12 times for Scotland, made his most notable contribution for Rangers when he scored a double in the 2-1 win over Motherwell on the opening day of the 2017/18 season.

    Danny Johnson

    One player who will be determined to make a big impact at Dens Park on Saturday evening is former ‘Well striker Danny Johnson.

    Arriving at Fir Park from Gateshead in the summer of 2018 with an impressive scoring record, it was hoped that the Englishman would be able to bring that from north of the border. He started impressively, with goals against Livingston, Rangers and Dundee, though would find a run of regular appearances difficult to come by.

    After finding game time limited in the second half of last season, Johnson made the move to Dens Park and so far this season has scored seven times in 20 appearances.

    Buy in advance or pay at the gate

    Tickets can be purchased now online for collection from Fir Park, or for delivery until Wednesday before the match.

    Ticket prices are £20 for adults, £15 for concessions and £10 for under 18s.
