Still plenty of room for improvement

Motherwell manager Stuart McCall says there is still room for improvement despite victory over Ross County on Saturday.

Goals from Iain Vigurs and John Sutton gave ’Well their first three points since the opening days of the season.

McCall said: “I thought the first half was a bit of a non-event for us, we kept the ball a little bit, but didn’t look a great threat and needed to up our game.

“We can certainly be a lot better as we defended well but our passing on the ball needs to improve.

“With the quality we had on the pitch our passing from back to front wasn’t good enough, we didn’t get Josh Law involved enough, and it was a bit of a stop start performance.

“We were a lot better in the second half, but it was two fantastic goals that won us the game, we have to be more creative in the final third.”

Vigurs nearly never travelled to Dingwall after his back seized up last Wednesday, but after curling home a 25-yard free kick McCall has challenged him to hit the net more regularly.

He said: “It was an incredible strike so I am more than pleased, but with his left foot he should be scoring more often both from set pieces and open play.”

’Well now travel to face champions Celtic on Sunday and McCall says having more players to work with is making all the difference.

He said: “Hopefully this will provide us with a catalyst and the biggest thing for me and the rest of the staff is just having players back training.

“We are getting players back to a level we want them to be and with some really big games coming up that’s encouraging.”
