3 man buns
Main talking point so far is that I count no fewer than 3 man buns among the Morton players. A record for a visiting team to Fir Park?
First opening for Morton
Good work by Aidan Nesbitt on the left on 16 minutes saw him cross but Craig McGuffie miscued a fine chance from a central position.
Major let off for Motherwell
There was a major let off for Motherwell when Robbie Crawford lost possession in midfield and McGuffie went clean through on goal. But keeper Liam Kelly saved the Steelmen by rushing out brilliantly to block.
Muirhead shoots over
Fine work by Nesbitt then set up Robbie Muirhead in the middle but he flicked over.
McGinley shot blocked
A Motherwell corner on the left after 39 minutes broke for Nathan McGinley whose left footed shot was blocked by Markus Fjortoft.
Steven Lawless played Devante Cole clean through for the hosts but he was offside.
Cole chance/half-time 0-0
Motherwell’s first sustained period of pressure of the game then saw Stephen O’Donnell cross from the right flank to Cole who couldn’t control his shot. 0-0 at half-time.
