Opened the scoring with a terrific effort on his weaker left foot after making a lung-bursting run up the line. His typical solid self otherwise.

2. Michael Smith - 8

Caught out of position for the Motherwell goal but was solid otherwise. Contributed to the attack with some nice long-range passing and, at one point, led a two-man counter attack.
