Josh Law says Motherwell travel to Aberdeen tonight (Friday) with no fear, but need to be more ruthless about killing off teams.

Despite Kilmarnock playing with 10-men for the whole of the second half ’Well failed to find a winner on Saturday.

Law said: “It was definitely a missed opportunity for all three points, I think we stopped doing what was working for us when they went down to ten men.

“In hindsight it might have been better if they’d stayed with 11 as the tempo slowed down a little and they were happy to sit back.

“We always felt confident, we were in control of possession, but maybe there wasn’t enough of trying the killer ball and just being safe.”

The point was enough to move ’Well above St Mirren in the battle to beat the drop.

Law said: “The boys are a lot more confident than they were a few weeks ago and at least it’s a point on the board and gets us off the bottom of the league.

“Now we will keep fighting to continue to climb up the table.

“We have nothing to fear going up to Aberdeen and feel if we played like we did in the first half against Kilmarnock and against Inverness then we’re a match for anyone in the league.

“We’ll have a game plan going up there and hopefully carry it out to come back with the points.”

Law has returned to the side in recent weeks at right-back and is delighted to be in his ‘natural’ position.

He said: “It’s where I started as a young player, but over the years have moved further up the pitch. I’m very comfortable at right-back and enjoy playing there.”
