Match Recap

Motherwell did not give Kilmarnock a moment's peace, culminating in Main getting his second goal in two games with a low drive after latching on to Ryan Bowman's header.

It could have been even better for the visitors when Stephen O'Donnell was penalised for his challenge on Aaron Taylor-Sinclair in the box. But Main, successful from the spot in midweek, lacked conviction and Jamie MacDonald dived to his right to save.

It proved to be a turning point that galvanised Kilmarnock and suddenly wingers Jordan Jones and Chris Burke made an impact on the game.

Jones cut in from the left to draw a save from Trevor Carson and Burke was on hand to force home the rebound - his second equaliser in as many games.

Then, after Kirk Broadfoot's header was cleared off the line by Richard Tait, Stewart drove at the Motherwell defence before curling a sweet strike past Carson.

Kilmarnock maintained their superiority into the second period and Brophy (right) made no mistake from 12 yards following Liam Donnelly's foul on Stewart.

It could have been an even more convincing win for Kilmarnock, with Carl McHugh striking his own post and Brophy being denied by Carson late on.

 

Comments

Steve Clarke: "Good win. The key moment of the game is the penalty save from Jamie MacDonald, it changes the momentum in the game.

"It gave us maybe a little boot up the backside that we needed just to get started and once we got started, I thought we were decent.

"If you want to be a good team then you have to learn to deal with adversity on the pitch. At the moment we're showing that we can handle that."
