MOTHERWELL ace, Alex Fisher, believes that the Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson is showing his class as the Steelmen enjoy a great start to their season.

The ‘Well are currently fifth in the Premiership table with a trip to Hampden booked in this month against Rangers in the Betfred Cup awaiting them.

The 27-year-old was set to return back to England after a stint at Inverness CT when Robinson convinced him with a move to Fir Park and Fisher believes that the manager has walked the walk after talking the talk.

“Everything that has happened is what the manager sold me on when I signed in the summer.

“Often you hear things because they are trying to sell a club to you.

“But the longer pre-season went on you could start to see the pieces of the jigsaw coming together.

“I was the first signing so it was hard to picture what was to come, but as the summer went on you saw the quality of the players coming in, what he was trying to implement.”

Fisher was the first of twelve signings that the Irishman made this summer has he tried to reinvent the strugglers inherited by Mark McGhee in March and Fisher believes that despite initial success, there is more to come.

“I don’t believe we’re the complete package yet, we’re ironing out kinks.

“But the fact we have had such a good start gives us hope we can keep it up for the rest of the season.

“We’ve never really had that conversation about what we want to achieve.

“Everyone starts a season with the ambition to be as successful as possible. Although it had never been explicitly said, I was of the opinion we would go for the top six.

“I heard rumours we were tipped to be relegation favourites, so that just helps inspire you. We are not there yet but the signs in the first two months have been very positive.”

Motherwell face a trip to Hamilton in the Lanarkshire Derby before the trip to Hampden against Caixinha’s Rangers.
