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.”
