|Fir Park assistant manager Keith Lasley is confident that Motherwell can return to the kind of form that saw them make it to the Betfred Cup final. Motherwell are preparing for their second home game in three days and Lasley admitted that the winter break has been beneficial for everyone. Motherwell will host St Johnstone in the Scottish Premiership as they look to overtake Kilmarnock and sneak into the top six.
He said: "In terms of our energy we’re back to what we were a few months ago, so we feel we can have a good, strong end to the season. In this division the margins are so fine it can come down to a set-play or one lapse in concentration. We need to be on it at every minute of every game to make that crucial difference in those moments. I think that’s what we were doing at earlier parts of the season. We maybe just lost that slightly on the back of the cup final and in to the break, but we feel as if we’re back now. The group as a whole are showing a real hunger and desire to get back to where we were and at the minute we’re looking good. We certainly feel that we can be one of the teams challenging for the sixth position in such a tight league."
