Motherwell stepped up their pre-season preparations with a 1-0 home win against Dundee United on Saturday.
Manager Stephen Robinson used two different lineups in either half, as the squad got their first minutes of the 2020/21 campaign.
New signings Nathan McGinley, Ricki Lamie, Scott Fox, Jordan White and Jake Hastie all featured, while there were top team minutes for Harry Robinson and young defender Max Johnston.
David Turnbull also made his return after summer knee surgery, playing the first 45 minutes of the match.
Exactly 18 weeks after Motherwell’s 1-1 draw with Hearts in their last competitive outing, the first half saw both teams tentatively find their way into the swing of things again.
Neither side seriously troubled either goalkeeper with clear-cut chances, save for a United header which bounced off the post and out.
The breakthrough came 10 minutes into the second half. Robinson’s ingenuity down the right opened the chance for him to cut inside and loop a shot over the goalkeeper.
With United’s number one beaten, the ball crashed down off the crossbar, with White on hand to tap home from a matter of yards.
Motherwell first half: Fox, Cornelius, Donnelly, Hussain, McGinley, O’Hara, Turnbull, Semple, Hastie, Seedorf, Watt.
Motherwell second half: Carson, Grimshaw, Maguire, Lamie, Johnston, Campbell, Polworth, MacIver, Hylton, Robinson, White.
Dundee United first half: Deniz, Robson, Connolly, Graham, Freeman, Powers, Harkes, Chalmers, Pawlett, Fotheringham, Smith.
Dundee United second half: Deniz, L Smith, Neilson, Sporle, Reynolds, Davidson, King, Mochrie, Clark, Glass, Appere.
