Louis Laing says being on loan does not make him care any less about Motherwell finding themselves bottom of the Scottish Premiership table.

The Nottingham Forest defender found himself in a similar predicament during a loan spell at Wycombe Wanderers and says he will do all he can to keep ’Well in the top division.

Laing said: “I was brought in to help Motherwell stay in this league and I wouldn’t be a footballer if I didn’t care where we are in the league.

“My character is the same as everyone else, I’ve been in this kind of position before at Wycombe, I fought there and I’ll fight here.

“Motherwell is my team at the moment and I’ll do my best for them.”

On Saturday ’Well failed to force a single save out of Dundee goalkeeper Scott Bain and Laing says that needs to change.

He said: “We didn’t create enough chances going forward and that is something we need to improve.

“It is frustrating as we are trying things, but the predicament we are in just now nothing is coming off, but we have two home games to put that right.”

’Well boss Ian Baraclough brought in seven new faces during the transfer window, but Laing denies unfamiliarity is a problem.

He said: “Everyone has slipped in well, all the lads here are good lads so there is no problem in that regard.

“We are not going to stop fighting, it’s hard to put our finger on the reason it’s not happening, but we know our lives are on the line.”

’Well welcome Inverness to Fir Park on Saturday and Kilmarnock a week later in a rearranged fixture.
