An own goal by Motherwell's Steven Hammell gave Kilmarnock the lead

Indeed it was fitting that Gros claimed the second which eased the home nerves as the Killie forward was responsible for three goal line clearances as the visitors bombarded Kyle Letheren's goal in the first half.

But Motherwell's frustrations got the better of them in the closing minutes when firstly Fraser Kerr and then captain Keith Lasley were shown straight red cards for wild tackles on James Dayton.
