    Reserves lose final match to Celtic

    Motherwell lost their chance to claim the SPFL Reserve League title as they were defeated 3-1 by Celtic in their final game of the season.

    The Glasgow side themselves went top with a game to play, with goals from Armstrong Oxoflex, PJ Crossan and Mikey Johnston sealing victory.

    Conor Sammon grabbed a late consolation for Maurice Ross’ side, who featured a number of first team players.

    Peter Hartley, Chris Cadden and Danny Johnson also got minutes for the second string, who went into the game knowing a win could put them in title contention.

    Within nine minutes, the visitors were in front at Forthbank. Oxoflex worked a one-two on the edge of the area, before side footing past Rohan Ferguson to open the scoring.

    Both sides had chances as the first half wore on, but Celtic would strike on the verge of half time to double their advantage.

    A driving run through the middle of the park by Crossan presented him a shooting chance from the edge of the box, which he took with aplomb.

    Then, soon after the hour mark, Johnston netted the third. Bursting through a number of bodies, he slotted under Ferguson to make it 3-0.

    Motherwell had chances and got a consolation with five to go, with Sammon getting on the end of a terrific reverse pass from subsitute Akeel Rehman, putting the ball past the goalkeeper.

    The young Steelmen’s season is now complete, and they must now wait to see how high up the table they will finish.

    Glasgow City defeat Motherwell

    Glasgow City defeat Motherwell

    Motherwell suffered a heavy defeat against Glasgow City at Petershill Park on Sunday.

    Four first-half goals for Kirsty Howat had the league leaders in command at half time and they would add to their tally a further four times after the break.

    City broke the deadlock after five minutes when Kirsty Howat headed the ball past Morgan Hunter from a corner and she added her second three minutes later, capitalising on a slack back pass before rounding the keeper and slotting home.

    Hunter pulled off a string of saves before Howat completed her hat trick when she scrambled home from a corner.

    The fourth goal came four minutes before the break when Howat found herself first to the driven through ball and she made no mistake by poking it past the onrushing Hunter to extend City’s lead.

    Second half substitute Jordan McLintock made it 5-0 with 54 minutes played and Motherwell’s problems worsened as Kerry Montgomery was ordered off following a second booking.

    Jenna Clark made it 6-0 from the resulting free kick and Joanne Paton waltzed her way into the box past three ‘Well defenders before squaring it across the box to fellow substitute Lara Ivanusa to slot into an empty net to make it seven.

    Goal number eight for City came with five minutes to play, Clare Shine was on hand to add her name to the scoresheet, advancing forward into the box before producing a smart finish to further extend City’s lead.

    The game would finish 8-0 which was unfair on Hunter, who produced some fantastic saves during the match and had spared further blushes for the women of steel.

    Motherwell: Hunter, Knox, Rolph, Rafferty, Roberts, Crilly, Montgomery, McEachran, Rice, Adams, Gardner (MacLeod).

    Motherwell face Glasgow City

    Motherwell face Glasgow City

    After enduring the disappointment of seeing their 3-0 lead over Rangers slip through their grasp, a massive challenge awaits Motherwell on Sunday when they take on Glasgow City at Petershill Park.

    It looked like Donald Jennow’s side were set to record their second victory of the season on Wednesday night, but they were stunned as Rangers struck three times in the final eight minutes.

    The result was cruel on ‘Well, who had controlled proceedings for the best part of the game. They’ll need to lift themselves quickly with a visit to the 12-in-a-row champions on the horizon.

    Kick-off is at 2:10pm.

    THE OPPOSITION

    Glasgow City have enjoyed a superb start to the 2019 season, winning all five of their league fixtures so far.

    In addition to their excellent league form, they have also booked their place in the final of the SWPL Cup, where they will meet Hibernian.

    Testimony to the quality within the City squad is that five of their players are set to be included in Shelley Kerr’s Scotland squad for the summer’s World Cup in France.

    In their last league outing, Scott Booth’s side had to battle back from a goal behind against Celtic, a result he hailed as their ‘biggest of the season so far’.

    POSITION

    Motherwell: SWPL1 – sixth – five points

    Glasgow City: SWPL1 – first – 15 points

    WHAT THEY SAID

    ‘Well head coach Donald Jennow says his side must bounce back from the disappointment of Wednesday night when they take on Glasgow City.

    Jennow, who previously spent five years at City as assistant to Eddie Wolecki Black and knows of the great quality Sunday’s opponents have within their ranks.

    “Feeling sorry for ourselves isn’t going to change the result so of course we wait for an opportunity to put it right,” Jennow said.

    “Hopefully we can continue to make steps forward and pick up as many points as we can.

    “Glasgow City look strong again this year so we expect a tough afternoon but I love that challenge.”

    After edging out Celtic 2-1 on Thursday evening, Scott Booth is expecting another tough challenge when Motherwell visit Petershill Park.

    “Motherwell have already shown this season that they can put in some really good performances,” he said.

    “We have to approach the game right and hopefully we can start better than we did against Celtic.”

    Jennow: We won’t feel sorry for ourselves

    Jennow: We won’t feel sorry for ourselves

    Motherwell head coach Donald Jennow insists his squad won’t feel sorry for themselves, despite suffering midweek disappointment against Rangers.

    The women of steel saw a 3-0 advantage slip through their grasp on Wednesday evening, with the visitors scoring twice in injury time to rescue a share of the spoils.

    It was a tough one to take for Jennow’s side, who looked set for their first victory since the opening day of the 2019 season.

    On Sunday, Motherwell travel to 12-in-a-row Scottish champions Glasgow City and despite the big challenge ahead, the ‘Well boss is looking forward to taking on the top team in Scotland.

    “On Wednesday we were very good for a large part of the game,” he said. “We passed the ball well at times and created a number of good chances.

    “We should have seen the game out but unfortunately we didn’t adjust well enough to being down a player.

    “It’s good to have a decent run of league games now and hopefully we can continue to make steps forward and pick up as many points as we can.

    “We put every game to bed at the following days training so our focus is always on the next game.

    “It was the same approach this week albeit with a tighter turnaround.

    “Feeling sorry for ourselves isn’t going to change the result so of course we wait for an opportunity to put it right.”

    Injuries suffered to Steph Knox and Lori Gardner both came as huge blows to ‘Well on Wednesday night, with the lack of depth within the squad exposed in the latter stages of the game.

    Pamela Liddell made her return to the club as a second half substitute and Jennow is hoping to add further recruits to his squad in the near future.

    “The squad needs to grow,” he added. “We had 20 players at the start of the season but for one reason or another that number has dropped.

    “We are certainly hopping to add and Pam is the first of those.

    “We’ll get her up to speed as quickly as possible and Wednesday showed she can be a threat for us.”

    Having spent five years as assistant manager at City, Jennow knows the club well and is well aware of the task facing his team on Sunday.

    “I know a lot of the folks at Glasgow City, but the squad is different now,” he said. “I do know how professional their senior players are and how high they set their standards.

    “Players like Leanne [Ross] and Jo [Love] showed me what professionalism was in the game and that is what underpins the club’s success.

    “They look strong again this year so we expect a tough afternoon, but I love that challenge.”
