SPL Fanzone: Motherwell

Motherwell fans were recognisable by the big grins they were sporting on Monday afternoon. After hammering Morton, realistically, our chances of winning the cup were boosted just as much on the following two days.

Rangers’ exit on Sunday was great news and to avoid Celtic in the draw was a bonus. Aberdeen or Queen of the South will not be a walkover but we have a decent chance. And, while we were basking in the glory of scoring six against Morton, Hearts’ draw with St Johnstone means that, not only will our two European rivals kick lumps out of each other in a replay but Hearts will be in a battle just before we face them in the league.

Life seems pretty good as a Motherwell fan now but we’ve not faced SPL opposition for a while. No doubt it will all start going wrong again come Saturday afternoon!
