    Adams targeting back-to-back victories

    Adams targeting back-to-back victories

    It was a big performance at a crucial time.

    Motherwell’s emphatic 4-1 victory over Stirling University in SWPL1 last Sunday could prove to be a turning point in their season.

    It was three points that lifted the women of steel seven points clear of bottom spot in the league and four clear of Sunday opponents Forfar Farmington.

    Claire Adams played a starring role in last Sunday’s success, netting a brace – her first goals since joining the club from Celtic earlier this year.

    Now, after tasting victory in the league for the first time since the opening day, Adams is determined to claim a further three points when Forfar visit Ravenscraig.

    “The Stirling game was a very important win for us,” she said.

    “We came off the back of a heavy defeat against Glasgow City, but to bounce back and take the three points was massive.

    “It also give us a huge confidence boost going into the Forfar game.

    “I don’t normally score a lot of goals over the course of a season, so to score two in the one game was a nice bonus.

    “I’m just happy that it helped the team get an important win.”

    With just three league games before the league breaks up for the summer, Donald Jennow’s side face an important few weeks.

    The next games will have a huge bearing on whether they will fight it out for a place higher up the table – or face a battle against the drop.

    ‘Well have a four points advantage over Farmington and they will be well aware of their opportunity to stretch their lead on Sunday afternoon.

    If they are going to achieve that however, they will have to record their first victory of the season at Ravenscraig.

    The indoor venue hasn’t been a happy hunting ground so far, with two defeats and a draw from their three outings.

    “It’s disappointing not to have picked up a win at Ravenscraig so far this season,” Adams added.

    “Forfar will be a very competitive game on Sunday so it is important for us to play the best we can to try pick up that first home win.

    “They sit four points behind us just now, so we obviously need a good performance to try and move us further ahead.

    “We will take each game as it comes.

    “As a newly promoted team the main aim is to maintain our spot in the league and if we can pick up another win today then that will keep us moving in the right direction.

    “We know we can compete in the league having picked up points against Celtic and Rangers so this is something we can then begin to look at more.”

    The last meeting between Forfar and Motherwell received heightened attention, as a controversial refereeing decision denied the visitors a share of the spoils at Station Park.

    Kerry Montgomery appeared to have drawn ‘Well level, but they were denied by the full time whistle a fraction of a second before the ball hit the net.

    Claire admits it was a tough one to take at the time, but insists that won’t be in anyone’s thoughts when the referee signals the start of the game today.

    “There was a controversial decision that didn’t help us, but we won’t speak too much about that,” the youngster added.

    “We just need to focus on what we can improve on to better our last result against them.”

    Adams was one of the many new faces who arrived at Motherwell ahead of their first season in SWPL1.

    The 20-year-old has adjusted to life quickly at Fir Park.

    “I‘m thoroughly enjoying my time here,” the former Scotland Under 19 international said.

    “When I first joined there was a lot of new faces but we bonded really quickly and this has helped us on the pitch and off.”

    “I believe it will continue to get better as the season progresses too and look forward to seeing what we can achieve.”

    Kick off indoors at Ravenscraig on Sunday is at 2.30pm. Entry is free.
