The day was full of emotion for the substantial travelling support. The first game since John Boyle announced his intention to sell and to write off the his eleven million pound investment in the club saw a benner saying "Thanks John" in the away stand. As he took his seat the chairman received a warm cheer
Terry Butcher gave a start to Dougie Ramsay at right back and Dirk Lehmann again leadthe line. No a lot happened for the first twenty minutes and the away support started a 'Stand Up for the Motherwell' chant and followed it with a heartfelt 'Please don't take my Motherwell away'.
No sooner had they finished and the players responded with a fine opener. Pearson's piercing run to the edge of the box allowed Lehmann to feed ADAMS who stroked the ball home with ease. It was a pleasure to see the reaction of the fans and the players to his goal.
We got to the break with the lead intact despite a a couple of scares. Killie had a penalty claim denied and Stevie Woods pulled off a good save.
We had a claaim of our on shortly after the restart when Dindeleux appeared to pull Ferrere down in the box. Again the shout was turned down.
In sixty five minutes Elliott came on for Ferrere and the game came bursting to life with four goals in around seven minutes.
First, a mistake from Ramsay while sheperding the ball to the dead ball line cost a goal when Tommy Johnston equalised.
We came storming back with a MCFADDEN special from the eighteen yard line. He beat Marshall at the big keeper's left hand post. The lead was restored and the Killie heads began to drop.
McFadden then sent Pearson down the left wing and his square ball across the goal was swept in by ELLIOTT. He celebrated in front of the delirious 'Well fans. But there was more.
Two minutes later the rout was complete when a well workd free kick from Hammell found Faddy unmarked. His chipped cross was met by three rising 'Well heads and PEARSON was credited with the touch.
The players and fans celebrated at the final whistle and Killer Karl threw his shirt to the crowd. What a day. Let's hope there are many more in the future.
