    Highlights as Motherwell win at Ross County

    A debut Ross MacIver goal and a late, late winner from Declan Gallagher seal a comeback 2-1 win for Motherwell at Ross County.

    ‘We thoroughly deserved the three points’

    “We left it late but we thoroughly deserved the three points.”

    Stephen Robinson hails Motherwell’s win over Ross County.

    Motherwell claim late win at Ross County

    Motherwell left it late but bagged a deserved three points at Ross County.

    Declan Gallagher’s headed winner in stoppage time, following Ross MacIver’s spectacular debut goal, secured a 2-1 victory in Dingwall.

    The visitors, chasing a fifth win in six, passed up a host of chances throughout before taking the deserved win at the death.

    Stephen Robinson made three changes from the team which won at Kilmarnock on Saturday. Liam Grimshaw, Christopher Long and Liam Donnelly dropped out, with Richard Tait, Sherwin Seedorf and Liam Polworth coming in.

    Despite the absentees, Motherwell went on the front foot from the off. Scott had an early free shot blocked by goalkeeper Baxter, Allan Campbell flashed a header wide and Liam Polworth sent a shot just wide of the left post after being set free by Jermaine Hylton.

    But Ross County looked menacing on the counter and grabbed a goal midway through the first half. Sean Kelly’s pinpoint cross from the left was met by the run of Blair Spittal, who headed the ball past Mark Gillespie to put the hosts ahead.

    Motherwell continued to press as the half wore on and came out the front foot again in the second period.

    As the game approached the hour mark, the pendulum swung. Seedorf was felled as he raced through on goal by Lewis Spence, who was sent off for denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity just outside the area.

    The visitors didn’t immediately make the advantage count as they struggled to break down a resolute County, but a substitution sparked the comeback.

    Former Ross County youngster MacIver, on for his debut, picked the ball on the edge of the area. He looked up, saw the opening and found the top right corner of the net in remarkable fashion to equalise.

    Motherwell’s tails were up. But the winner looked like it wouldn’t come until deep in stoppage time.

    Polworth’s corner from the left was perfectly flighted, with Gallagher rising highest at the back post to power home a header and spark scenes of jubilation.

    Lasley: ‘We’re striving for better’

    The Motherwell assistant boss talks about the win over Kilmarnock, a Christmas Day drive to Dingwall and the test on Boxing Day against Ross County.

    Opposition report: A look at Ross County

    Ross County play host next for Motherwell, with the Steelmen travelling north.

    Here’s a closer look at our Boxing Day opponents.

    The story so far

    Back in the top division after a one-year spell in the Championship, Ross County have already put a reasonable gap between themselves and the bottom of the table.

    Sitting eight points ahead of 12th placed Hearts and five clear of Hamilton Academical in the play-off spot, their 20 points have been amassed from five wins and five draws in 18 games.

    Form guide

    The Staggies have won two and lost three of their last five, with their last match ending in a 4-0 thumping at Livingston.

    Their two wins came on home turf, with Hibernian and Kilmarnock seen off 2-1 and 1-0 respectively.

    The victory over Hibs on 4 December was the team’s first in the top flight since victory at Motherwell on 21 September, a winless run of nine.

    Reserves lose at St Mirren

    Reserves lose at St Mirren

    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.

    Motherwell: Hemfrey, Brown, Devine, Hussain, Muir, Kettings, Cornelius, Hutchison, MacIver, Robertson, Starrs.

    Subs: Connolly, Williamson, McSwegan.

    Next up for Motherwell is a trip to take on Ross County on Boxing Day.

    Kick-off in Dingwall is at 3pm.

    Tale of the tape

    Sitting eighth in the Premiership table, Ross County sit two points off the top six going into the festive fixture.

    With two wins in their last two home matches over Hibernian and Kilmarnock in December, the Staggies ended a near-three month wait for a victory.

    Back in the top flight after a year out, they’ve won four and lost four at home in the league this campaign.

    Motherwell head into the match third in the Premiership table, following the 1-0 win over Kilmarnock at the weekend.

    Victory over Ross County could seal that spot going into the winter break, depending on Aberdeen’s result at home to Livingston.

    Head to head

    Ross County were victors at Fir Park in the first encounter of the campaign, coming from behind to win 2-1.

    That was the same score in the game before that, as the Staggies knocked Motherwell out of the William Hill Scottish Cup in January.

    With a 0-0 draw at the Global Energy Stadium in the game before that, you have to go back to January 2018 and a 2-0 win at Fir Park for Motherwell’s last win in the fixture.
