Episode details

One win in seven is “not good enough” says Motherwell striker Lori Gardner as she eyes up improved fortunes for the Lanarkshire side when the season resumes on 4 April.

Motherwell have suffered a torrid time so far, losing 9-0 and 5-0 to Rangers and Celtic respectively before the winter break, and are currently above bottom-of-the-table Hearts only on goal difference.

But Gardner hopes the return of experienced players will see Eddie Wolecki's Black’s side become a different prospect from now until summer.

“We have been disappointed in how we’ve played,” Gardner told Anyone’s Game. “We are disappointed with how we’ve started the season, only getting one win in seven games isn’t good enough. But we have had a lot of injuries; we’ve had about four or five key players out.

“It is hard for the young players to come in and try and step up when they’ve not played a lot of senior football.

“As a squad we have underperformed, but hopefully with these key players coming back we can push on and start to push up the table.”
