John­son wants Mother­well steel

The Herald - Herald Sport - - FOOTBALL -

Marvin John­son says Mother­well must be will­ing to sac­ri­fice at­trac­tive play – and win ugly, writes

Scott Mullen.

The Steel­men went down 2-1 last week­end to a last-minute goal away to St John­stone to leave them a point above the rel­e­ga­tion play-off place.

In their last eight games, Well have man­aged to win just one game.

John­son said: “At this stage of the sea­son, you will see a lot of teams try­ing to see games out at 1-0. It’s no longer about try­ing to score five or six. This is when the ugly side of foot­ball comes in.”
