Motherwell grabbed a deserved last-minute winner to claim all three points in a 4-3 win over Dundee.
David Turnbull’s second of the match at the death ensured a home victory for Stephen Robinson’s men, and left the visitors in peril at the foot of the table.
A topsy-turvy game saw Dundee take the game to their hosts, with the advantage swinging back and forth throughout.
Martin Woods grabbed the first for the Dark Blues, slotting home a penalty after Gboly Ariyibi was ruled to have fouled in the area with 11 minutes gone.
Just seconds later, Motherwell were back level. Turnbull’s deflected strike from the edge of the area levelling the scores.
There were 22 minutes on the clock when Dundee went back in the lead. Ethan Robson’s curling shot from Scott Wright’s pass beating Mark Gillespie.
Again, Motherwell immediately got back on level pegging. The ball sat up perfectly for James Scott, who netted his first goal for the club in his first senior start at Fir Park.
After a breath pause for breath, the ‘Well took the lead five minutes into the second half. Ariyibi did brilliantly to adjust his body to fire past Seny Dieng and also get his first goal at Fir Park.
But, such was the game, Dundee were level within two minutes. Nathan Ralph got the run on the defence from a corner, powering his header into the net.
Alex Gorrin then saw red for a second bookable offence, allowing the game to briefly settle before both teams started to trade blows.
Then, in stoppage time, Turnbull composed himself brilliantly to volley home from close range after the ball came back off the crossbar.
