Motherwell striker Henrik Ojamaa insists that he has no concerns over his long run of games without a goal.

Henrik Ojamaa: Keeping calm

The Estonia striker has failed to hit the net since April and Motherwell travel to Inverness on Sunday on the back of just one victory in their last seven games.

But Ojamaa said: "I am happy with how I am progressing, the goals aren't coming at the moment but I feel that I am benefiting the team in other ways.

"I'm not the type of player who will let form or statistics affect me, I will still play the same way and continue to make attempts on goal.

"I was hoping after beating St Johnstone we could have gone on and won against Dundee United and then Dundee.

"It could be worse, we could be playing poorly and not picking up results - I believe it won't be long before we turn things around.

"If we keep this form going then the results will come eventually, the quality we have will come through, I have no doubts about that.

Motherwell's preparations for the trip north have been hit by illness, with several players suffering from flu.

Ojamaa is one of the few players in Stuart McCall's squad who has not been affected by the bug and he is relishing the opportunity of taking on Terry Butcher's side.

The 21-year-old did not make the trip to Dubai for Estonia's midweek friendly against the UAE, after Motherwell made a request to the Estonian FA.

"I like being able to train and ensuring that I am ready to play every week, the situation with illness isn't ideal although I'm sure the players who come back will still give their all," he added.

"The club contacted the Estonian FA to request that I didn't make the trip, of course it would have been nice to have played in Dubai but I would much prefer looking forward to playing Inverness."
