    What’s at stake

    For Motherwell, victory will seal seventh spot in the Premiership and a placing as the top team in the bottom six.

    Ross County are in pole position to guarantee their top-flight safety going into the match. A draw will mean they finish 10th, and clear of a play-off spot.

    Should they lose, only a win for Kilmarnock against Hamilton will mean the Staggies drop to 11th.

    Tale of the tape

    Motherwell are 2-1 up in wins from the three encounters between the clubs so far this season.

    Graham Alexander’s men are on consecutive victories, winning 2-1 in Dingwall last time out and then 4-0 at Fir Park back in October.

    Form guide

    Motherwell have now lost one in 90 minutes from 11 matches, with their only defeat coming against Kilmarnock, paired with a penalty shootout loss to Hibernian in the Scottish Cup.

    County’s 2-1 win over Hamilton on Wednesday night ensured they won’t finish bottom of the Premiership.

    They’ve now won back-to-back league matches, picking up seven points from a possible 15 in their last five games.

    Dundee United 2-2 Motherwell

    Dundee United 2-2 Motherwell

    Motherwell staged another two-goal comeback to take a point in a 2-2 draw at Dundee United.

    Tyler Magloire replaced Declan Gallagher in defence in the only change to the starting team, with Scott Fox returning on the bench after missing the vast majority of the season through injury.

    Graham Alexander’s men headed to Tannadice looking to exorcise the demons from the last-gasp draw inflicted on them on Boxing Day, but would suffer an early blow.

    Allan Campbell appeared to twist his ankle in a 50-50 challenge and, despite treatment, was forced off after six minutes in what was due to be his penultimate appearance for the club before a summer departure.

    With ‘Well missing him, it would be the visitors who would take the lead soon after. Chalmers’ shot from distance took a hit off Shankland on the way to goal, wrongfooting goalkeeper Kelly and nestling in the net.

    Motherwell would continue to push. Hastie curled an effort wide from inside the box, and Long’s running was carving him out chances, one which dropped particularly close past the far post.

    Then, with 17 minutes gone, ‘Well would undo their positive work. A defensive lapse saw Magloire fell his man in the area, giving Shankland the chance to make it two from the spot.

    The Scotland international however saw ‘keeper Kelly guess correctly but his dive was not required, with Shankland dragging the ball past the left post.

    A facial blow to Campbell replacement Crawford left Motherwell down to 10 men for spells in the midway point of the half but the men in blue held firm against waves of United pressure.

    That dam would burst shortly after the half-hour mark.

    Quick play down the right from United led to youngster Meekison being in space outside the box on the right. Picking his spot, he curled well past Kelly into the bottom-left corner of the net.

    Motherwell continued to push, with Long’s running causing particular trouble, but the two teams would go in at the break having suffered contrasting fortunes.

    The second half would start more positively. Long’s tireless endeavour continued to take the visitors up the park, and he would get his rewards 10 minutes into the half.

    Advancing into the area, he tied his man in knots on the left before rifling a shot from 10 yards in at the near post through the ‘keeper.

    Both sides would continue to trade blows, with Hastie coming closest in the mid part of the match, seeing his shot from a tight angle blocked.

    Then, in stoppage time, the breakthrough came. With most in the box, goalkeeper sent a free-kick from the halfway line into the area.

    Lamie rose brilliantly to flick it on and Cole stole in to smash the ball home to equalise and earn a hard-fought point.
