Breidablik   0 - 1   Motherwell (agg 0 - 2)

Motherwell goalscorer Jamie Murphy grabbed a crucial away goal
Jamie Murphy's crucial away goal just before half-time sent Well on their way

A Jamie Murphy strike saw Motherwell progress to the third qualifying round of the Europa League with a nervy win over Icelandic outfit Breidablik.

Leading 1-0 from the first leg, Well weathered early pressure from the hosts as Steindorsson, Krisjansson and Petursson all spurned chances.

Murphy scored just before the break when he slotted home after collecting a long ball from Stephen Craigan.

Well were more comfortable in the second half and held on to progress.

Breidablik made a bright start and could have taken an early lead but Steindorsson failed to force home a dangerous free-kick whipped into the box by Krisjansson.

Motherwell struggled for fluency and could have found themselves behind in Iceland but Krisjansson and Petursson also spurned good chances.

Murphy responded for the visitors and he was foiled by goalkeeper Kale, who blocked his shot with his legs.

Craig Brown's men found their feet as the first half wore on and the Steelmen grabbed a crucial away goal three minutes before the break.

Craigan's long ball caused havoc in the Breidablik rearguard and Murphy made no mistake this time as he pounced to slot home.

The hosts, needing three goals to prevent an early exit in the competition, looked to pierce the Motherwell defence but their patient play failed to pay dividends in front of Darren Randolph.

MY SPORT: DEBATE

Ross Forbes saw an effort come back off the post as Well looked to extend their lead.

Arsaelsson thought he had reduced the aggregate deficit with 20 minutes remaining but his header was repelled by the Motherwell defence.

Brown had said before the game that his side would not be too cavalier in pursuit of an away goal.

But Murphy's strike knocked the wind out of Breidablik's sails and they saw out the second half comfortably to set up a tie against Norwegian side Aalesunds.
