He’s only just arrived at Fir Park- but Tony Watt is keen to show his worth to new employers Motherwell and manager Stephen Robinson.
The well-travelled forward recently arrived in North Lanarkshire after leaving Bulgarian side CSKA Sofia. Well boss Robinson said it would take him time to get up to full match sharpness but Watt’s just off the back of 277 minutes in a week.
It’s more than he expected to play by this point but that doesn’t bother him. Watt wants to help Motherwell get out of this current slump they are in, currently eight games deep into a winless run.
Speaking after the 2-1 defeat to St Mirren, Watt’s ready to prove his commitment to getting the Steelmen back on track: “In training we’re good but obviously the last few games there’s been something there that we can’t get the win.
“It doesn’t seem as if people are down but it’s one of them we’ll need to fight through. We aren’t a bad team, we are a good team. We’re still third but we do need to start picking up our results and performances.
“I think you can see the quality, the club is in the right place. The club have been perfect so far, I couldn’t ask for any more. Stephen Robinson’s been unbelievable, I can’t thank him enough.
“The foundations he’s gave me to do what I can do, the confidence he’s given me. He is treating me the way I want to be treated as a footballer and I hope I can give my all for as long as he wants it.
“I said to him that I’d run through a brick wall for him and hopefully I can keep doing that. We’ve only got one point out of six and we’re out the cup but I need to start adding something and show that I deserve to be in this team.”
