McCall confident of improvement
Stuart McCall is convinced his new-look Motherwell team will bounce back quickly from their home defeat by Aberdeen.
Motherwell travel to face an Inverness side who have won both of their Scottish Premiership games without conceding a goal on the back of a 3-1 loss that came two days after they returned from their Europa League trip to Russia.
Manager Stuart McCall claimed after the game that they would bounce back and was comfortable with people writing his team off after they lost regular starters Michael Higdon, Henrik Ojamaa, Chris Humphrey, Tom Hateley, Darren Randolph and Nicky Law this summer.
Hammell, who has made 468 appearances for Motherwell, has seen plenty of changes at Fir Park over the years and he is confident they will adapt.
The 31-year-old left-back said: "The changes this year have been a bit more drastic than previous years, this season pretty much six of the starting XI has changed.
"It might take a bit more time to click and play a different style of football but the players we have got in are high quality.
"It won't be long before we are back to our best.
"If you've got good players then you are going to cause other teams problems. The style of play might be a little bit different but it can still be effective.
"The players we have got are enough to cause any team in this league problems."
Hammell, who was in the Scotland squad that faced England in midweek, added: "We put pressure on ourselves to get back to winning ways.
"Teams have been wanting to beat us for a few years, we've been up there and used to that.
"We have just got on with our own thing in here and not really worried about that.
"We have just concentrated on ourselves and not worried about that and it has worked for us, and that's what we'll look to do this season."
McCall feels his squad are much better prepared to face Caley Thistle than they were Aberdeen following their defeat by Kuban Krasnodar.
"We are two games in and we have a 50 percent record," he said. "If we finish the season with a 50 percent record I'll be happy.
"But I look at our games last season at home, after we beat Inverness at home we had a run of five or six games we didn't win and the doom-and-gloom merchants were out just before Christmas.
"I'm sure there will be a few doom-and-gloom merchants out because we got beat at home.
"You never like to get beat, and certainly you never like to get beat at home.
"On the day Aberdeen were the better side, we made a couple of individual errors that cost us goals, and we will be looking to do better than that."
McCall remains on the lookout for a right winger with pace to replace Humphrey.
"We've got another lad in on trial at the moment and the under-21s league in England kicks off next and there are a couple of players I want to have a look at," he said.
"I would imagine it would be a loanee from down south but there might be somebody out there who fancies coming and putting themselves in the shop window."
