Eddie Wolecki Black praised his team’s battling qualities after Motherwell Ladies recorded their second successive home win with a 3-1 win over Central Girls.
Despite continuing their strong early season form, the ‘Well boss said he didn’t feel his side quite match the standards they have set in their early season performances.
“We said we wanted to make our home venue a tough place to come for anybody and we’ve backed up the win in our opening game here with another winning performance today,” Black said.
“There’s one thing about us, we’re competitive there’s no doubt about that. If teams want to have a physical battle with us we are more than capable of matching that as we showed against Central.
“That’s not to say that they were physical, I just believe we are more than capable of standing up for ourselves.”
Motherwell battled back after conceding an early goal to take a 2-1 lead into half-time courtesy of Hayley Cunningham’s penalty and Kerry Montgomery’s superb curling effort.
They would secure victory with 10 minutes remaining when Suzanne Mulvey turned home Sophie Gallagher’s lay-off.
“We were more pleased with the second half because we put the game to bed and saw the game out,” Black added. “It was a big victory as I don’t think we were at our best.”
