Right time to take a breath
Motherwell defender Richardtait is used to pressure.
Having led out the Steelmen in the Scottish Cup semi-final last season at Hampden to a massive win over Aberdeen, he knows how to keep a cool head on and off the field.
After Carl Mchugh was sent off on Saturday, that experience helped him keep his team-mates in the game to take a massive point into the international break.
And the 28-year-old is certain that taking a hard-earned point over Livingston into the break will be vital when they return to action against St Johnstone on October 20.
Tait said:“when we went down to 10 men they put the pressure on.
“We had to try and sit in and keep that point, that was the main thing for us.
“It gives us something to build on in the next game.we now go into the break in a positive mindset. “The break comes at the right time for us. We’ve just got to build on it.we got a draw, it’s a point and it’s a start.”
Tait was full of praise for Jacobs’goal which sailed into the top corner. He insisted the wonderstrike didn’t make the dropped points any easier to take.
He added:“it was a tough game.they put a lot of pressure on us in the second half without really making a dent on our goal. It’s a bit of a tough one to take the way they score.the lad’s took it really well but it’s just one of them, no-one is ever going to save that.”
