Motherwell can avoid the play-offs, insists Sutton

Motherwell striker John Sutton is still convinced the club can reach safety ahead of this weekend’s crucial Scottish Premiership clash against Ross County.

The Steelmen languish in the play-off place six points behind the Staggies before their showdown at Fir Park on Saturday.

However, with four games to go before the end of the campaign the 31-year-old insists they can still avoid the play-offs.

Ahead of their meeting with Jim McIntyre’s men, Sutton said: “Is a must-not draw game? Pretty much, when you look at the points difference.

“You’re desperate to go out and win every game so nothing changes but if we don’t get a result then we’ve really got a lot of problems and it’s going to be hard to get ourselves out of.

“There is a chance we can but it’s a big ask. I don’t think anyone at the club is taking for granted we’re going to beat Ross County or Kilmarnock but there is a realistic chance of getting out of the situation.”
