’Well claim win over Saints

Motherwell hosted St Johnstone at Fir Park on Sunday running out 3-2 winners.

A Michael Higdon hat-trick put Motherwell three up, but an injury to goalkeeper Darren Randolph and late strikes by St Johnstone’s Nigel Hasselbaink and Liam Craig meant a nervy finish.

The win ensured Motherwell remained third in the SPL, equal on points with second placed Inverness in the race for the top six and Europe.

Times & Speaker photographer Alan Watson was on hand to capture all the action.
