Motherwell and Celtic will meet for the first time this season at Fir Park on Wednesday evening. We will have to produce a massive improvement over Saturday's performance if weare to make a contest of it.
Motherwell produced a surprise at Livingston but it delivered nothing but bewilderment and frustration for the travelling fans. Stephen Robinson struggled to make sense of his team's transformation from last week's winners to this week's losers.
Motherwell travel to Livingston on Saturday in search of a fourth league win from five attempts. The prospect of reducing the gap with our opponents to two points provides a huge incentive for Stephen Robinson's team.
There was much to cheer as Motherwell celebrated the comprehensive victory over Aberdeen on Saturday. We had to bounce back from a horrible defeat, overcome the loss of key players and take on a team preparing for a cup final. And we succeeded.
