Match Recap

Motherwell reclaimed third place in the Scottish Premiership from 10-man Kilmarnock after defeating Angelo Alessio's side 2-1 at Fir Park.

The visitors' Alex Bruce was shown red for slicing down Chris Long, and Liam Donnelly scored from the free-kick.

Dom Thomas equalised for the visitors but Stephen Robinson's side turned the screw in the second-half.

Devante Cole's winner in the 54th minute sealed Kilmarnock's fate, who now sit fifth behind Aberdeen.

Kilmarnock faced real tests defensively at Fir Park and contained Motherwell for large spells, but the Lanarkshire side have the best goalscoring record in the league outside Rangers and Celtic and made the most of their numerical advantage to bounce back from consecutive defeats.


Angelo Alessio: "I think it was no free kick and then no sending off. Bruce takes the ball. But the referee gave the free kick and sent him off. I think this is the main point in the game.  I think the players played well and we do our best to come back into the game and at the end of the game two or three chances to score."
