LOUIS MOULT believes Motherwell should look at the positives and not the negatives afterSaturday’s defeat to Celtic.
The Steelmen found themselves leading the champions by two goals to nil after 35 minutes on Saturday but would eventually end up losing the game 4-3
Moult said: “The plan was to get at them, press them high up the park, and I don’t think they liked it”
“We were at home and our crowd responded well to the way we were set up and we were on the front foot.”
But the Englishman thinks that his side showed enough throughout the game to give them confidence to kick on for the rest of the season.
“We’re disappointed in how the game finished but I think we made a good account of ourselves and we gave it a right go.”
Moult has netted eight times for Mark McGhee’s side this season and scored again at the weekend but admitted the result overshadowed putting the ball in the back of Celtic’s net.
He added: “It was a good start from ourselves on Saturday, I thought we were brilliant in the first half.
“It’s always nice to get on the scoresheet but the final result overshadows that a little bit.”
Motherwell currently side 9th in Scottish Premiership table, only a point off the relegation places but the striker thinks that his side need to look at the positives in defeat.
“I said to the boys at the end of the game, we need to look at the positives that we gave it a right go and we had Celtic scared, especially in the first-half.”
“We forced them into making changes. So I think we can take a lot of credit from that.”
