Josh: We must win our last four games

Motherwell ace Josh Law says the Fir Park club must win their final four Premiership games to have a chance of avoiding the relegation play-off.

Law, speaking after Friday night’s demoralising 2-0 league defeat at Hamilton Accies, said: “There are four games left and it is do or die for us. “We need to win all four, so we need to turn it around fast.”

Law said the goals lost to Accies – scored in each half by Jason Scotland and Ali Crawford – had been ‘sloppy’ as Motherwell gave away possession in the build-ups to both of them.

If ’Well fail to avoid second bottom spot, right-back Law faces the nightmare scenario of playing a two-legged play-off against his brother Nicky – a Rangers midfielder – in a battle to attain a Premiership place for next season.

“If it does come to that we’ll prepare for it and – by hook or by crook – we’ll stay up,” Josh added.

To add another dimension to a potential ’Well-Rangers play-off next month, Josh is flying out to New York to get married the day after the second leg – and Nicky is his best man!

But he hasn’t yet written off ’Well’s chances of winning enough points in the remaining fixtures to catch a team above them.

“We won’t be giving up until it is mathematically impossible to catch them all,” Josh added.

“The Ross County game this Saturday is a must win for us.”

’Well received a much needed survival boost on Saturday when relegation rivals County – who they trail by six points – lost 2-1 at home to Partick Thistle.
