Stephen Robinson has said that Motherwell aren’t turning up for a day out when they travel to Ibrox to face Rangers.

The Well sit in fourth heading into this clash and a win could take them back into third after Kilmarnock leapfrogged them. A draw would also be enough providing that Aberdeen don’t beat Celtic.

Robinson is adamant that his side won’t just be there for a stroll in the park.

He told the Daily Record (page 62, 25/10/19): “We go there as a team third in the league with a real positive mindset. Whether it’s the young boys or not they will go with a belief that we can get something.


“There will be periods in the game when Rangers have a lot of the ball so defensively we have to be sound and take the mistakes we made last week out of it. But when we land on the ball I think we can play.

“We will try to make the game uncomfortable for Rangers. We are not there to entertain Rangers. We will be going there to do what we can to win the game.”

Motherwell have been brilliant away from home, with a pacey counter-attacking style of football yet to be defeated in the league. Only Livingston have taken points off the Well when they’ve been on their travels this term.

Going to Ibrox is a different kettle of fish though. Robinson will need to equip his men for battling with players, who on an individual basis, will be better than them.

On the counter though Motherwell could outpace Rangers with the likes of Sherwin Seedorf and Devante Cole. If they are presented chances, they will be few and far between, so the Well attackers must take them.

Robinson’s yet to beat a current top six team this term so Rangers will prove difficult for them. Give that they’ve scored over 50 goals already this term, the Northern Irishman must ensure a repeat of last season’s 7-1 thrashing doesn’t occur.
