Motherwell progressed in the SPFL Reserve Cup as best runners-up with a comeback 2-1 win over Dundee on Monday.
Goals from Jermaine Hylton and Paul Hale secured the progression of Maurice Ross’ side, having been defeated finalists last term.
Motherwell had the first clear chance to score when Christy Manzinga earned himself a first-half penalty. But stepping up to take, the Frenchman fired his fierce spot kick off the top of the bar and the visitors were able to clear.
Dundee then hit the Steelmen before the break. A ball down the right was crossed in to Cunningham, who went one-on-one with Trevor Carson before slotting in at a narrow angle.
Motherwell had two quick chances to level before the break through Seedorf and Hutchison, but the Dundee goalkeeper stood tall to keep the hosts at bay.
Hylton, making his way back after recently being sidelined through illness, was introduced at the break in favour of Sherwin Seedorf and immediately set about turning the game around.
Having seen an earlier shot after cutting inside turned around the post, he then grabbed the equaliser. Mikael Ndjoli crossed from the right side and found Dean Cornelius. He got to the byline before cutting back across goal for Hylton to steer home.
Then, at the death, he turned provider. Hussain found Hylton on the left who then put the ball over the top for fellow sub Paul Hale, who got between two defenders and found the net to secure a place in the last four.
Motherwell: Carson, Brown, Mugabi, Hussain, Johnston, Cornelius, Sloth, Hutchison, Seedorf (Hylton), Ndjoli, Manzinga.
Subs: Connolly, Quinn, Muir, Robertson, Starrs, Hale.
