Stephen Robinson’s Motherwell side slumped to a second successive league defeat as St Mirren left Fir Park with three points after a 1-0 victory over the Steelmen.

Despite creating numerous chances throughout the 90 minutes, the North Lanarkshire side could not find a leveler.

Speaking after the match, Robinson said he was disappointed not to put the ball in the back of the net: “It’s a disappointing result again and it’s just not happening for us at the moment. The boys gave lots of effort and we had lots of shots and lots of possession, but we were punished for one mistake.

“It’s not a coincidence that other teams are in the right place at the right time. They had one chance and they scored it and we had numerous chances and didn’t take them. That’s as a team not just the strikers and overall, I’m very disappointed.”


The Steelmen played some slick football throughout the match but most of their play came through the middle of the park which allowed the Buddies to dominate both flanks when attacking.

The Northern Irishman says he will need to look at making some changes to start picking up results: “We lacked width today at times and for the first time this season we had Jake [Hastie] came on and make an impact. Maybe he is an option now for us because we didn’t have any width the last two games.

“Three of them all want to play in one position, and I told them to make it work we have worked on it, but I haven’t quite made it work so far and the games that they have all played together.”
