Motherwell’s Moult almost missed match after stepping on soft toy

first_img“One of the things was that Moulty has not trained all week. Moulty hurt his hamstring when he stood on his child’s toy.“So that was a worry all week but he declared fit this morning after a fitness test. But that’s why we took him off.“So there was that and the first half we weren’t connected and didn’t have the team performance we had of late.“But thankfully after losing a really disappointing goal – obviously Hammy doesn’t make those sort of mistakes and we will forgive him for that…. But the second half was much, much better, we dug in and scored two goals. Motherwell boss Mark McGhee revealed how striker Louis Moult almost missed his side’s draw with Partick Thistle after being injured by a soft toy.Moult struck four times the week before in the win over Hamilton, but struggled to make much of an impression as the Steelmen drew 1-1 at Firhill.McGhee spoke about how the striker was a doubt for the game after stepping on a children’s soft toy.“We were poor in the first half, we never really got going,” said the Motherwell manager afterwards. “I just watched Scotty’s first one and it’s nothing like offside, it was ridiculously onside, which is disappointing. But it might only have been one anyway. We kept going and eventually got a goal which I think we deserved in the second half.“We could have won it, they had a couple of one-on-ones earlier in the second half. Given the first-half performance I think we will settle for a draw.”last_img read more
