LOUIS MOULT has warned there is more to come both from himself and Motherwell despite their impressive form.
Motherwell are looking for a fifth consecutive home win when Aberdeen visit in the Ladbrokes Premiership on Sunday and Moult has been a key part of their improvement on last season.
The striker has netted seven goals in his last five matches and nine in total this campaign despite missing pre-season training following groin surgery.
The 25-year-old said: “I do feel there’s more to come from me. If I’m honest I’m not as fit as I’d like to be.
“I didn’t do a pre-season. When the boys were in Dublin running every day I was there watching, it was one of the most frustrating times I’ve had here.
“But the gaffer helped me at that stage and tried to keep me involved. I’ve lacked fitness and I think it showed in one or two of the early games, maybe against Rangers.
“My match-sharpness is getting there, I’m lasting 90 minutes and getting fitter.”
Moult’s latest two goals came in Thursday’s 3-0 Betfred Cup victory over Aberdeen, which set up a semi-final against Rangers.
Visiting boss Derek McInnes described Motherwell’s play as “simplistic” but added they were good at what they did.
And Moult said: “Well it’s obviously effective so if we are winning games off the back of what we are doing why should we change? We shouldn’t, it doesn’t matter what people say about us.
“You can’t say one player played badly in the last six games. Everyone is working hard, there is a passion at this football club from the top to the bottom and everyone has bought into it.
“You have a hungry set of players and maybe that was missing. Everyone in that starting XI is so, so hungry to succeed, whether it’s for themselves, their family or for the football club. They are so hungry.
“When you are hungry, you are a good player. The talent shows.
“People are taking notice of what we are doing and it’s no surprise to us.
“We’ve been working really hard since we came back from pre-season. We believe we are a strong squad, we can achieve together and that’s what it’s all about.”
