Aberdeen boss Stephen Glass aiming to heap misery on Motherwell

Aberdeen boss Stephen Glass is looking to pile the misery on Motherwell this weekend after the Steelmen ran out winners in their last Premiership meeting.

The roles were somewhat reversed when Graham Alexander’s ‘Well won 2-0 at Fir Park in September, in a match where Glass was yellow carded at full-time by referee John Beaton and Aberdeen assistant Allan Russell saw red card for remonstrating with the whistler.

Last time out the Dons were on a long winless streak and Motherwell were in the middle of a what would be five-game unbeaten run that won Alexander Premiership manager of the month for September.

Now the Dons have turned their fortunes around with wins over Hibs and Hearts either side of a draw with champions Rangers.

The Steelmen, meanwhile, have take just one point from 15 in their last five outings and were soundly beaten 6-1 by Rangers at Fir Park on Sunday.

And ahead of welcoming Motherwell to Pittodrie on Saturday, Glass reckons their resurgence will be ‘worth nothing’ if they don’t topple their visitors ahead of the international break.

He said: “It’s important we build on the recent performances and points that we’ve gained.

“I think it’s worthless going three games with the points we’ve taken if you go and lose at home against Motherwell.

“You go into a two-week break off the back of that, it’s not going to feel great.

“It’s important that we keep it going, but the players know that.

“They’re aware of what happened last time at Motherwell.

“They’re also aware of how it felt winning on a Saturday afternoon at home [with a 2-1 win over Hearts to end the Jambos’ unbeaten start to the season].

“That’s the overriding thing that they want to feel again.”
