Motherwell goals from ‘straightforward crosses’ proved why Aberdeen didn’t deserve to take anything from their Scottish Premiership trip to Fir Park, says Stephen Glass.
The Aberdeen manager was unhappy with the manner in which his side conceded twice during the 2-0 defeat on Saturday. Two crosses into the box beat his defence and while Aberdeen had plenty of the ball and worked ‘Well goalkeeper Liam Kelly several times, they were unable to convert their chances. Aberdeen haven’t won in six matches.
Glass said: “It’s a game where we’ve had a lot of the ball and not done enough with it, where we’ve not defended two situations well enough, and where we’ve got what we deserved as a result. We didn’t do enough with the ball in the final third when you look at how much of it we had.
“Then their goals came from two similar situations, straightforward crosses coming into the box and we didn’t deal with them well enough. We didn’t get cut open by any means, but if you can’t defend a simple ball thrown into the box, it will cost you goals.”
Motherwell manager Graham Alexander was delighted with Man of the Match Kevin Van Veen, who scored and assisted in the match: “We know Kev’s quality in possession, we’ve been working hard on him in the stuff out of possession, team shape, discipline, because the other side of the game we can’t give him anything – he’s a top-notch player.”
