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."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
