McCall proud of undermanned Motherwell

Motherwell boss Stuart McCall was extremely proud of his players after they held off a fast-finishing Dundee United to win 2-1 in the Scottish Premier League last night.

The Steelmen recorded a second win over the Terrors within a week after last Wednesday's Scottish Cup triumph but this time they managed to stop a six-game winning streak that Dundee had put together in the league.

And what's more is they did it with an undermanned line-up and just a few days after Dundee had beaten Rangers away from home which delighted McCall.

"Dundee United did so well to win at Ibrox, scored three goals and played exceptionally well. They have won six on the bounce," he said.

"I'm not making excuses but we had four guys in the stand, Jeffers, Jennings, Gunning and Hammell, who are all first-team players for us. So that effort was outstanding.

"It was Saunders' first game back for a month, Maurice Ross has played two games back to back after not playing since November.

"We were hanging on, no doubt about it, big Daz (Darren Randolph) made a great save at the end.

"It was a huge win, I said before the game it didn't matter how we got it, the main thing was the three points.

"If I'm honest I would have settled for a point before the game because they are a good side."
