Oh Motherwell...is Wonderful
Report of match Livingston 0 Motherwell 5 played 9th November 2004
Oh my word. On the road back to Lanarkshire (JD's obviously), Jwok gave me the task of writing this report. Between drink, adrenaline and delirium I'm finding this rather hard. After a five goal thriller, the final score was Livingston 0-5 (FIVE) Motherwell.
Quite frankly, we were breathtaking tonight. We scored early on – a good move down the left resulted in Dorado putting into his own net after excellent work from Clarkson and Fitzpatrick. That set the tone.
The boys were superb
Livi tried gamely to fight back into things but to be honest we looked in complete control. Eventually we got the deserved second goal when Hammell was released down the left and his cross was slammed in by ‘The Beast’ Richie Foran to give us a 2-0 lead. Livi threatened with their first attack of the half and looked to have bundled the ball over the line but the whistle went for offside and shortly afterwards, half time was called.
Livingston made a game attempt to get back into things at the start of the second half but to be honest we were so far ahead of them in terms of quality it’s hard to quantify. O’Donnell scored with a deflected volley from the edge of the box and the match was killed off as a contest moments later. After great work by Foran, as he forced himself in front of Dorado, he was hauled down in the box. Dorado got a stonewall red card, and The Beast dusted himself down to stroke home the resulting penalty.
We made some substitutions to play out time and the best Livi could manage was a couple of shots straight at
