Motherwell were given easy passage into the fifth round of the Scottish Cup as Hamilton were eliminated at Fir Park. The early gift of an own goal was bettered by a needless penalty resulting in a 2-0 derby win for the Mighty 'Well.
Hamilton gave us a goal of a start before they romped to a 3-1 win at Fir Park. Motherwell frittered the game away with a series of defensive errors and an attack with no punch. The purse strings will have to be loosened in January.
