Motherwell   0 - 1   Odense BK (agg 1 - 3)

Motherwell striker John Sutton has a shot against Odense

Motherwell were eliminated from the Europa League at the play-off stage after nine-man Odense completed an aggregate victory at Fir Park.

Peter Utaka scored on 28 minutes to put the Danes ahead on the night and cancel out the Steelmen's away goal.

Odense lost Espen Ruud and Anders Moller Christensen to red cards, the latter conceding a penalty late on.

But Jamie Murphy failed to convert from the spot, one of several missed chances on a night of frustration for Well.

The match completed a miserable evening for Scottish clubs as the Lanarkshire club joined Celtic and Dundee United in exiting the tournament.

With Motherwell needing only a 1-0 win to progress to the group stages of the competition, hopes were high amongst the 9,105 home crowd that Craig Brown's side could win through their third successive European tie.

And there were early claims for a penalty when Chris Humphrey's corner appeared to strike the hand of Odense midfielder Mohamed Traore.

The Steelmen carved out a scoring chance when Keith Lasley played Sutton in on goal and the striker's shot looked goalbound. But the home fans' celebrations were cut short when the ball inched wide.

Humphrey was then found at the back post by Steven Hammell's cross, only to slice the shot wide.

Tom Hateley, who scored Motherwell's away goal last week with a free-kick, had another attempt from a set play and forced goalkeeper Roy Carroll into a low save.

The pressure on the Danes saw the concession of several free-kicks and Christensen followed team-mate Ruud into the referee's book.

Murphy was next to threaten the visiting goal after latching on to a long ball but, though the forward's attempted lob beat the advancing Carroll, the attempt just missed the far post.

And within minutes, Odense had moved further ahead on aggregate as Ruud's corner was not dealt with by the home defence and Utaka fired into the net.

Chris Sorensen came close to adding to his strike in the first leg, his shot blocked by Motherwell's Steven Saunders.

The loss of the goal had knocked the Steelmen off their stride and their frustration was evident when Hateley received a booking for a challenge on Rurik Gislason.

The first half closed with Sutton drawing another save from Carroll.

Hateley and Saunders had efforts blocked after the break as Motherwell's endeavours continued to prove fruitless.

Nick Blackman had an excellent chance to draw Well level on the night after being found by Sutton's flick-on but the on-loan Blackburn striker headed straight into the arms of Carroll.

Carroll made another save to deny Blackman minutes later after the tall forward had blasted the ball towards goal.

Ruud was given his marching orders after receiving a second yellow card and Christensen was dealt the same punishment for handling in the area in the 85th minute.

But Murphy's resulting penalty came back off the post and Motherwell could not make anything of the rebound as the impressive Carroll's goal remained intact.
