Motherwell earned all three points with a brilliantly-deserved 2-0 win away at Hibernian.
Goals from Jordan Roberts and Devante Cole delivered the win at Easter Road in a controlled, high-energy performance from Graham Alexander’s side.
Motherwell again went unchanged following the 0-0 draw at St Mirren on Wednesday night, with club captain Gallagher fit enough to return amongst the substitutes.
The visitors dominated the opening proceedings, pushing high up the pitch and forcing the Hibs backline into errors.
Watt found the side netting and Campbell saw a shot blocked before the opener deservedly arrived in the 25th minute.
Motherwell’s front three of Watt, Cole and Roberts converged on the middle of the pitch and, gaining possession, Watt slipped an exceptional, pinpoint pass through for Roberts co chase down.
Getting ahead of his man, he had time to prepare himself for the one-on-one with Marciano, before picking his spot to open the scoring from 15 yards.
Campbell went close with a header as Motherwell continued to dominate the bulk of the attacking play in the first 45, although Hibs grew into proceedings with some crosses which kept the ‘Well backline on its toes.
If Motherwell started the first half well, they couldn’t have scripted their start to the second.
With 45 seconds on the clock, Roberts found himself on the ball on the left corner of the box. Attracting defenders towards him, he slipped the ball to Cole just 10 yards to his right.
Cole spun away, surging into the area before picking his spot in the far right corner of the net to make it 2-0.
Hibs immediately sent on the cavalry, with Nisbit, Gogic and Porteous being introduced to play.
The hosts would grow and grow, with ‘Well sitting deeper and looking to hit on the counter.
That prompted a change of shape with 20 minutes to go, with Gallagher introduced to the fray after injury for Watt, putting five in defence.
Motherwell: Kelly, O’Donnell, Magloire, Lamie, Carroll (McGinley), Maguire, Campbell, Crawford, Cole, Roberts (Lawless), Watt (Gallagher).
Subs not used: Morrison, Devinem Cornelius, Polworth, Hastie, Long.
