Motherwell midfielder Robbie Crawford admits that after a season of streaming games some people might be lost to football - but his mum and dad are desperate to get in to see him play.

Crawford has become something of a regular at Motherwell since joining from Livingston on loan in September, extending that until the end of the season on a permanent deal in January, and three months later signed a one-year contract.

Although he has tasted the Fir Park atmosphere with Livingston, he has yet to experience it as a Motherwell player, and hopes that changes next season.

He said: "I played here last year with Livingston and it was a good atmosphere. I've obviously never experienced it being a Motherwell player, so hopefully I can get that next season and it will be much better.

"I would imagine most fans would be itching to get back - I know my mum and dad are dying to get back to the games.

"I would imagine most people will want to get back, but you could say that maybe some people prefer sitting and watching it on the couch.

"It is strange, it's very quiet and you hear everything the gaffer's shouting at you constantly - you hear that! It's strange and we're used to it now, but it will be much better when we can get the fans back in and a proper atmosphere."

Crawford hopes Motherwell can finish the season strongly against Dundee United at Tannadice this evening and at home to Ross County, simply because it feels good to take points.

He said: "We have two games left and we want to finish as high as we can. We've been on a good run and we hope to continue that on Wednesday night.

"I've seen a stat that we were third in the league on points since the gaffer came in, which is obviously very good and we've done well, so we just hope to keep winning."

On his own situation, Crawford says he's loving life at Fir Park and is happy to have forced his way into the team.

He said: "At the start I found it tough trying to get into the team, but then I got a run in the team, I feel I did well, got the new deal, and then I've enjoyed it.

"I've played most games since the manager has come in, which is obviously good for me, but the most important thing is winning and that means you enjoy games if you win, so it has been good.

"It's not nice going into the summer not knowing what's happening, so it was nice to get the new deal sorted early and I was happy to stay, so it was good to get it done.

"It's good playing, and I didn't play in the last game, but there's a lot of competition here.

"There are good players, so you're not guaranteed a game, but it's good to have played the majority of games and I've enjoyed it."
