Motherwell   3 - 0   Aalesunds FK (agg 4 - 1)

Jamie Murphy
Jamie Murphy set Motherwell on their way with his seventh goal in Europe

Jamie Murphy was on target as Motherwell progressed in the Europa League with an impressive win over Norwegian outfit Aalesunds.

The striker gave 'Well a dream start after four minutes when he collected Chris Humphrey's cross and fired home a superb effort into the top corner.

Craig Brown's men were warming to the task and John Sutton swept home a Steve Saunders centre to double their lead.

'Well breezed into the play-offs with a late Jonathan Page strike.

The Steelmen were eager to banish the disappointment of conceding an injury-time goal in last week's first leg in Norway.

And they came haring out of the traps at Fir Park as they looked to take the lead in the tie.

Murphy, who was also on target in the 1-1 draw in Norway, gave the hosts the lead with a superb early strike.

The white-hot forward took one touch after good work from Humphrey and his shot flew past the helpless Anders Lindegaard for his third goal in Europe this season and seventh overall.

Manchester United reserve team coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was at Fir Park to watch 26-year-old transfer target Lindegaard, who could do little about the goals he conceded.

Aalesunds were struggling for creativity in the absence of injured winger Demar Philips and Motherwell doubled their lead in 13 minutes.

The ball was worked down the right and Saunders's driven cross was swept home by Sutton.

The Norwegians tried unsuccessfully to breach the Motherwell rearguard as they found the home defence and goalkeeper Darren Randolph in superb form.

Aalesunds enjoyed a brief period of ascendancy early in the second half but could not find a way back into the game.

Substitute Page, who had replaced Sutton, grabbed 'Well's third goal in the closing minutes when he was fed by the unselfish Murphy to stroke the ball into an empty net.
