MOTHERWELL put their Champions League disappointment behind them to pick up their first point of the season in their opening SPL fixture away to newly promoted Ross County on Saturday.

The Fir Parkers’ first ever match in Europe’s top competition saw them go down 2-0 to Panathinaikos on Tuesday night and they now face a mountain to climb in next Wednesday’s second leg in Athens.

But Stuart McCall’s men head for Greece with a clean sheet under their belts following their trip to Dingwall.
