Sutton rescued a point at Easter Road with his second goal of the game in stoppage-time after the home team had come from two goals down.

But the Motherwell striker believes the team showed their resolve to rescue a point, and he praised the performances of both Lionel Ainsworth and Iain Vigurs.

"I think we're disappointed in the end, we went two goals up and were playing quite well," Sutton said.

"You want to go and win the game from there. At the same time, when you're two goals up and it goes to 3-2, it's easy to start blaming each other and allow the heads to drop.

"We battled on but you need a piece of magic as well and Iain Vigurs' run before the goal was outstanding, and we got the luck we maybe deserved.

"Lionel was outstanding, his goal and assist were fantastic and we caused them problems.

"I think Lionel scored one of the goals of the season."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
