Motherwell were up against it in midweek when they travelled to Ayrshire to face a Kilmarnock side buoyed by the fresh appointment of Tommy Wright, but they handled it magnificently.
The narrow 1-0 win gave Graham Alexander’s men a bit more breathing space and it was interesting to note that at last, Motherwell kept a clean sheet for the first time under their new boss.
Three wins from their last four games is the type of form we know that they’re capable of, but how will they cope in this Lanarkshire derby?
Brian Rice was so pleased with his players last weekend when they achieved a thoroughly deserved point against Rangers and he must hope now that they can kick on to some sort of consistency.
The arrival of Bruce Anderson has given his team a lift, his partnership with Marios Ogkmpoe looked very promising. Accies need to start picking up points to keep the pressure on those immediately above them.
Dundee United had been on an awful run of late but an impressive three points against Ross County in Dingwall last weekend gives them a fighting chance of a top six spot. Lawrence Shankland scored his fifth goal of the season and I’m sure everyone thought he would score more heavily than he has managed so far.
He certainly appreciated the part played by Marc McNulty in his goal, maybe they can finally work together to form a more effective partnership in the weeks ahead. It won’t be easy against Livingston, they have a work ethic, organisation and a physical approach that most clubs are struggling with.
