Motherwell currently sit third in the Scottish Premiership table, suggesting it has been a strong season for Stephen Robinson’s side.

The Fir Park outfit have been in and around that position for most of the season, and the club looked on track to seal a Europa League qualifying spot.

Football is now suspended indefinitely of course due to the Coronavirus outbreak, and clubs face an anxious wait as to the outcome of 2019/20, with voiding still a possibility at this stage.

Motherwell would like to hope all their hard work won’t account to nothing, but this very serious worldwide situation means nothing can be ruled out.


The Steelmen have enjoyed a fine campaign, but what have been their best results up until the suspension?

4-0 win vs St Johnstone at Fir Park (30/11/19)

Needing a victory after back-to-back defeats, Motherwell inflicted some real pain on St Johnstone back in November.

The Saints may have been bottom, but still presented a challenge for Robinson’s men – at least, on paper, before a ball was kicked.

Motherwell took the opening stages to settle into the match, before putting the visitors to the sword through Devante Cole, Peter Hartley, Jake Carroll and Christy Manzinga on his debut.

The result would be the catalyst for four wins in the next five games.

1-0 win vs Aberdeen at Pittodrie (22/01/20)

The Steelmen got the better of their rivals for third place back in January, with Liam Donnelly’s header the only difference between the two sides at Pittodrie.

It was a diligent and disciplined performance from the visitors, who restricted the Dons to very few clear-cut chances for all their possession.

The result would put four points between the pair in the table.

4-1 win vs Ross County at Fir Park (04/03/20)

When Ross County rocked up at Fir Park earlier this month, Motherwell had gone six league matches without a win.

It was paramount for them to respond – and an emphatic home display ensued.

Goals from Mark O’Hara, Tony Watt and an Alan Campbell brace followed Liam Fontaine’s opener for the Staggies the lead, making the result all the more impressive.

It was a delightful performance with some lovely football on show, with Watt’s goal particularly pleasing on the eye.
