Kilmarnock 1-2 Motherwell (Premiership)

1 - 2

Rugby Park


Attendance: 4,532


Motherwell's Premiership revival continued as we came from a goal down to win at Kilmarnock on Saturday to move ourselves some seven-points clear of St Mirren now.

It didn't start too well for us at Rugby Park but a late winner in the second half saw us come away with a two-one win to open up that healthy lead on bottom club St Mirren.

Syme (17) headed Kilmarnock into an early lead, which was deserved at the time with Long forced into a save from Magennis prior to this, with the teenage defender bagging his maiden goal in senior football - Long wasn't so assured this time, which helped with the Killie goal.

It was also Pearson's (38) first goal for us since his return to the club, which saw him celebrate the signing of his new contract ahead of this game with an equaliser to draw us level ahead of half time. Ainsworth tried his luck, if Pearson hadn't redirected his effort it probably wouldn't have seen us go into the break at one-one.

Ashcroft should have has the hosts in front again before the interval but in the second half McDonald was denied by the bar from the edge of the area with Ainsworth also denied by Kilmarnock 'keeper Samson as we pushed for the winner.

That winner, which we merited, came when Erwin (77), who last scored on the opening day of the season, completed the comeback by firing past Sampson with a little under 15-minutes to play.
