SPL Fanzone: Motherwell

MOTHERWELL’S performance at Tynecastle was one of the worst of the season but it is hard to say it’s not been coming. While we’ve still been picking up points, recently our displays have been tailing off badly.

It is hard to say if we are simply suffering from a slight downturn in form or if other teams have figured out how to stop us. Certainly Nicky Law is struggling to impose himself in the middle of the park while St Mirren and Hearts have both put us off our game with intensive pressing. It is hard to imagine Dunfermline will simply let us build from the back so perhaps we need to find a more effective way of getting into dangerous areas. It is hard to be too negative when third at new year. But avoiding complacency certainly won’t be a problem when we have so much to be concerned about!
