Motherwell fans know only too well the reaction which can follow such a trauma and it is likely that a sizeable home support will turn up at Almondvale. Regardless of the fact that seven players have been made redundant and that many others have been invited to accept pay cuts we can expect a fighting performance from them.
Still, they were five down to Thistle on Wednesday night before they scored a couple of consolations. That can hardly have done much for their confidence. In contrast we seem to have ended our goal scoring drought in spectacular fashion. Eight goals in two games must breathe confidence in all the attacking elements of the team. As for the defence? They have to eliminate the occasional costly slip ups and secure a clean sheet to repair the self inflicted damage in the last few games.
There should be no surprises in our line up. None of the long term injured are in contention for a place and the current starting eleven are entitled to go for three in a row. There is every prospect of an exciting match ahead. We’ll get the triple, 2-1 for the ‘Well.
