Match Preview

Mjallby: Well will not lie down Johan Mjallby expects Motherwell to give it their all against Celtic on Sunday even though an unlikely victory could cost the Fir Park club a place in Europe. The two sides meet in the Scottish Cup final at Hampden the following week and Stuart McCall's men will go into the showpiece occasion with a Europa league spot secured if the Hoops are by then Clydesdale Bank Premier League champions. For that to happen, Neil Lennon's side need to get a better result against Well than Rangers can dig out at Kilmarnock. McCall has admitted he will field a weakened side at Parkhead and he is set to throw in rookie keeper Lee Hollis for his debut. However, Celtic's assistant boss Mjallby believes the Steelmen will be going for a shock victory. "They will go out to win the game," said the Swede. "If you are a footballer, you can't go out not to win a game. "I don't know what side Stuart McCall is going to pick, he has a cup final to think about as well. "But that is not important, the important thing is that the manager and myself picks the right team. "We have to put the pressure on Rangers. "We need to make sure it's three points for us because it's not going to go to goal difference. The players definitely have the belief that we can win the title but obviously we have to do our business first. "What Rangers do at Kilmarnock is not in our hands." Mjallby admits Celtic could have done without the loss of Kris Commons for tomorrow's crunch game. The Scotland midfielder was sent off after picking up two yellow cards in the 3-0 win over Hearts at Tynecastle on Wednesday night. The first caution was for simulation and the second came after he left the field to celebrate his 14th goal for the Hoops since signing from Derby in January. "It is a big blow for us," Mjallby said. "He has been magnificent since he came to play for us. "He has brought a lot of goals and he is very important for our attacking play. But what can you do? "Joe Ledley and Beram Kayal are injured so we have to cope with it and we have a big enough squad to cope. Hopefully it will not be of importance for us." Motherwell forward Jamie Murphy has revealed that missing out on the shortlist for the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year award has only increased his determination to keep improving. Murphy was surprisingly not on the four-man shortlist for the prize, which was won by Dundee United striker David Goodwillie. Celtic forward Gary Hooper, Hearts winger David Templeton and Aberdeen striker Chris Maguire were all ahead of Murphy in the running. But Murphy, who has scored 12 goals in a season where he has been predominately employed in a wide role, did not take the blow to heart. "It just gives you something to aim for," the 21-year-old said. "You want to be getting talked about for playing well, so you just want to do your best." Murphy has made huge strides in his fourth season as a regular in Motherwell's first-team squad, looking stronger and more confident. The former Scotland Under-21 international has also added an assuredness in his finishing to the pace and skill that was evident in his teenage years. "The start of the season seems so long ago, but I feel like a better player now," the Glasgow-born youngster said. "I hope I can continue to impress, my aim is to be the best player I possibly can." Murphy claimed significant compensation for missing out on the PFA Scotland recognition when he collected two awards this week. He added the Scottish Cup semi-final player of the round award to his quarter-final prize following his spectacular goal against St Johnstone. And he also secured the Clydesdale Bank Premier League player of the month trophy for April. Murphy is now focused on taking a bigger prize as Motherwell prepare for a double header against Celtic in the SPL and Scottish Cup. "It's great to get recognised for playing well, I must be doing something right," he said. "It's good to get the award but I would trade it in for the Scottish Cup."
