Motherwell came from behind to claim victory in the SPFL Reserve League at Kilmarnock on Monday.
Goals from Jamie Semple and James Scott, cancelling out Rory McDonald’s early free kick, gave all three points to the visitors.
Several first-team squad members featured at Rugby Park, with Richard Tait, Barry Maguire, Christian Ilic and Christy Manzinga joining the goal scorers.
But it would be the hosts who would take the early advantage, after Scott was ruled to have fouled his man 20 yards from goal.
McDonald stepped up and curled home to give Kilmarnock the lead.
Kilmarnock were to be thwarted by PJ Morrison and Jack Brown as they pushed close to extending their lead, but had to settle for a 1-0 half-time advantage.
Motherwell came out the stronger and, shortly after Scott hit the crossbar with a header, Semple restored parity.
His quick free-kick was out to Manzinga on the left-hand side. The forward then returned the pass to Semple on the edge of the box, who curled his shot past the dive of the Kilmarnock ‘keeper and into the net with 62 minutes played.
Four minutes later, Motherwell were ahead.
Morrison’s long ball forward wasn’t dealt with by the defender, allowing Scott to nick in and chip the ball over the onrushing goalkeeper. He then collected the ball on the other side, before knocking the ball in.
Kilmarnock then went close late on as they chased an equaliser, but Motherwell held on to get a win under their belt.
Motherwell: Morrison, Tait, Hussain, Devine, Brown, Maguire, Cornelius, Semple, Ilic, Scott, Manzinga.
