Simon Ramsden says the time for talking is over if Motherwell hope to pull themselves away from the relegation zone.

Ramsden grabbed his first goal for ’Well against Dundee United on Saturday and felt aggrieved to leave Tannadice empty handed.

He said: “We had a case for two penalties and then the ‘goal’ the referee seemed to have given initially only to change his mind and I think our display warranted something from the game.

“We were bitterly disappointed not to be ahead at half-time, but we are killing ourself conceding sloppy goals. When we got back to 2-1 we thought we had a chance, but the third goal killed that, and overall it was a frustrating day.

“Everybody was on the front foot, we played some decent stuff and created loads of chances which we are capable of doing, but it’s alright talking about it, we need to go out and do it.

“People must be sick of us talking the talk, and while we didn’t get the result against Dundee United we actually walked the walk for once.

“It’s a strange game football. I don’t know why things clicked, it’s not like we went into the previous games not wanting to be on the front foot, but when the team is low on confidence sometimes it doesn’t come off.

“At Tannadice it did and I think the fans appreciated it as they clapped us off despite conceding three goals which doesn’t happen very often.

“It’s now about making sure we play like that for the rest of the season to get us out of trouble.”

Next up is the visit of St Johnstone at Fir Park on Saturday.
