Motherwell surrendered a one-goal lead go to down 3-1 to St Mirren in the SPFL Reserve League on Monday.
St Mirren went close first in the match with nine minutes played. Djorkaeff hit a swerving shot from distance, which Hemfrey had to palm over the bar for a corner.
After a shout for a penalty for a trip on Devine was turned down, Sam Muir had Motherwell’s first effort, his shot from 18 yards going over the bar.
After Starrs and Hutchison went close, Motherwell took the lead on 18 minutes. A quick free-kick from Dean Cornelius set Starrs down the right, with his cross not cleared by the home defence and allowing Robertson to slide home from close range.
Twenty minutes later, it was 1-1. Well were caught short playing out from the back, with Josh Jack intercepting Robbie Hemfrey’s pass and having the simplest of tasks to roll home from 15 yards.
Starrs could have put Motherwell back in the lead just before the break, being sent in on goal after a terrific Cornelius through ball. But his first touch was a little heavy, allowing the goalkeeper to get off his line to make the save.
Errors would compound matters in the second half. A coming together between Devine and Hussain allowed Djorkaeff the chance to put a pinpoint cross into the box midway through the second half, which Lewis Jamieson did not pass up, putting St Mirren 2-1 ahead.
Then, at the death, another defensive mistake afforded Jack the chance to fire home his second of the game and complete a comeback victory for the Saints.
