Finnie in charge of Dee clash

Motherwell return to Premiership action on Wednesday night, with Stephen Finnie in charge for the club’s trip to Dundee.

It is already the officials third ‘Well match of the new season after he took charge of the dramatic Ross County victory in the Betfred Cup, as well as Berwick Rangers visit to Fir Park in the group stages.

That 1-0 victory wrapped up a perfect group for Stephen Robinson’s men and the official was again at Fir Park as the fourth official for the league opener against Rangers.

But most memorably this campaign was the dramatic evening in Dingwall, when Ross MacLean sealed progression to the quarter-final of the league cup.

The last time he was in the middle for a ‘Well clash with Dundee was the forgettable 5-1 home defeat against Dundee back in February.

However, the time before that was an important 3-1 victory over Partick Thistle in February 2016, when three points lifted the Steelmen to eighth in the table.

Louis Moult smashed a brace on that afternoon to take his tally to 16 for the season.

Marvin Johnson then made it 3-0 on 69 minutes when he cut in from the right hand side and cracked a sweet low drive into the net.

Callum Booth grabbed a consolation for Partick on 76 minutes when he drilled a low 20-yard effort past Connor Ripley.

Stephen has taken charge of fourteen Motherwell games over his career, the Steelmen winning nine and losing five; curiously, no draws – although the County cup fixture took extra time to decide a winner.

In those matches, he has dished out 54 cautions, 22 of which flashed at a player wearing Claret and Amber. Three players have been sent for an early bath, Scott Brown for a second bookable offence in a match at Parkhead in 2010 and Henrik Ojamaa in season 2014/15. Most recently, of course, was Charles Dunne for his last ditch tackle in Dingwall in the Betfred Cup clash.

Stephen will be assisted by Graeme Leslie and Joseph Lawson. Nick Walsh will be on fourth official duties.
