WELL STRIKER FIRES WARNING TO HOOPS

0

MOTHERWELL striker Curtis Main has warned Celtic: “We’re not just there to make up the numbers!”

The powerful Well frontman slammed in two goals in the 3-0 win over Aberdeen to lead the Fir Parkers to a Scottish Cup Final meeting with the Hoops.

Main is determined to wreck Brendan Rodgers’ team’s bid for an unprecedented successive treble at Hampden on Saturday.

And the 25-year-old attacker wants to play his part in ending Well’s 27-year wait for trophy success.

The ex-Portsmouth forward insisted: “We’re there to win the Final – that’s it. We’re not interested in double-trebles – we’re interested in Motherwell lifting the trophy.

“It’s a long time since the club have had silverware, so to be able to deliver that would be incredible for everybody involved. Success is built on a collective unit and that’s what we’ve been this season.”

Main, who has scored eight goals since arriving from Pompey in January, missed out Saturday’s 3-0 win over Hamilton Accies with a wrist injury.

He added: “It’s fine – there are no problems. It was a weekend to recuperate and get ready for the build-up to the Final – and then the Final itself.
