Wolves loanee Ronan notches assist to continue return to form

Connor Ronan made a flying start to life on loan at St Mirren, before his form tailed off slightly at the end of 2021.

He has seemingly started the new year with renewed vigour, and is back making goal contributions again.

Last week, he scored the winner in St Mirren’s 1-0 win over Aberdeen, a moment of magic to unlock a tight game.

Last night, he again helped make the difference in a close match as St Mirren hosted Motherwell in the Scottish Premiership.

Ronan laid on an an assist from a corner to allow Alexandros Gogic to open the scoring with nine minutes remaining.

He might have hoped that would be enough to secure all three points but Motherwell secured a share of the spoils in the second minute of stoppage time.

Ross Tierney’s equaliser was greeted by boos from the home fans and manager Jim Goodwin looked gutted on the touchline.

On a personal note though, Ronan’s return to form has continued as he looks to try and push himself into Republic of Ireland contention.

That is promising for Wolves, who are no doubt tracking him closely and hoping he can carry on his strong 2022 so far.
