John Sutton: Netted the winner for Motherwell

Stuart McCall's hosts trailed early due to a Stephen McManus own goal but after they had fought back through Henri Anier and Sutton, held on for the points despite Simon Ramsden's late dismissal.

The game was just 17 minutes old when the home fans were silenced - a header from Darren Barr, who had already denied Anier with a superb last-ditch tackle, deflecting off McManus and into the net.

The lead lasted just three minutes - an exquisite reverse ball from Keith Lasley sending Anier clean through and the Estonian striker retaining his cool to slot past Craig Samson.

There was another scare at the other end for the hosts moments later, when home goalkeeper Lee Hollis had to be at his best to prevent Barry Nicholson from restoring Killie's lead.

Iain Vigurs and Sutton put Samson into action but the visitors seemed to be heading for the half-time dressing room on level terms before some poor defending presented Sutton with a routine finish.

On-loan Celtic defender Jackson Irvine was the culprit - his wild attempted clearance finding fresh air and allowing Sutton the simplest of goals at the back post.

It was left to Samson to deny Sutton his second early in the second period while at the other end, Kilmarnock striker Kris Boyd produced two fierce drives to worry Hollis.

Ramsden's dismissal for a second bookable offence ensured a nervous ending during which Hollis had to smother danger on the goal-line on three occasions, but ultimately Kilmarnock failed to avoid a third straight defeat.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
