Motherwell saw two points slip through their fingers at the death as they drew 1-1 at Dundee United.
Tony Watt’s early header was preceded by a glut of chances from the visitors, but the hosts would snatch a point at the death with Nicky Clark’s sweeping effort.
Trevor Carson returned to the starting team after a spell out injured, in Stephen Robinson’s only change to the starting team which drew 0-0 with Aberdeen in midweek.
Motherwell started with plenty of attacking intent and would benefit directly from their second corner of the match.
After his initial delivery was turned behind from the left, Polworth sent in a carbon copy ball from the right and Watt was on the spot to power a header home past Siegrist.
Campbell’s burst into the box nearly made it two soon after. Breaking in behind the United defence, he looped a header over the goalkeeper but it landed narrowly on the roof of the net.
The visitors dominated attacking proceedings in the opening stages, pressuring their opponents into mistakes and finding joy down the flanks.
Motherwell thought they had a second with 27 minutes played. Another perfect ball into the box found the run of O’Donnell. He composed himself to swivel and shoot, but the flag went up as the ball was finding the net.
Carson had to be alert on his return to the team and got down outstandingly to stop Fuch’s drive from outside the box from sneaking into the bottom right corner of the net.
Watt was in outstanding form in the opening 45, bustling past men and trying to link up with Lang, but the United defence persistently found a way to intervene at the last second.
Motherwell started the second half in similar fashion and had numerous chances to extend the lead early on.
The clearest fell to Lang. From O’Donnell’s low cross, Siegrist spilled into the path of the forward. Rounding the ‘keeper, Lang shot on target but the ball was clipped off the line by Smith to deny the second.
Lang would then go close again on the hour mark. Finding room on the right side of the box, his powerful drive looked in but the hand of Siegrist diverted it wide.
Motherwell kept piling forward but they would be sucker punched at the death.
A cross from the right wasn’t cleared and substitute Clark was on hand to sweep the ball home to deny Motherwell the three points their performance merited.
