Cook in charge for Hibs clash

Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Barry Cook will take charge of his third Motherwell match on Saturday when the Fir Parkers travel to face Hibernian in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

And the official will oversee the first meeting between the Edinburgh side and the Steelmen since 2014, when a dramatic clash ended 3-3.

The referee may be fairly new to Premiership fixtures but has established himself as an experienced official in the lower divisions.

The first time Cook took charge of a Motherwell fixture was their trip to Firhill back in February 2016.

A late, late goal cost ‘Well a point that day when ex-Fir Park man Steven Lawless’ deflected shot gave Thistle the win.

On a miserable night for football, neither side deserved three points as both sets of fans must have wished the pitch had failed its late inspection.

A stark statistic of only two saves, one in each half from Connor Ripley, summed up a match best forgotten – and especially from a Motherwell side which didn’t deserve to win, but certainly didn’t deserve to lose either.

‘Well fans will be hopeful of a more exciting match this time around.

Barry will be assisted by Graham Chambers and Graeme Stewart, with Stephen Finnie on Fourth Official duties.
