Motherwell   2 - 3   Hibernian

Motherwell v Hibernian

Highlights - Motherwell 2-3 Hibernian

By Clive Lindsay

Derek Riordan was the creator as Hibernian came from a goal behind to begin their Scottish Premier League campaign with a win away to Motherwell.

Motherwell deservedly took the lead after 13 minutes when John Sutton scored from close range.

Anthony Stokes fired home following a free-kick by Riordan, whose second-half cross was poked in by Paul Hanlon.

Riordan set up Liam Miller for a nice finish before Jamie Murphy replied after Colin Nish conceded a penalty.

The goals tally did not quite match last season's incredible 6-6 draw between the sides, but Hibs will be delighted with their comeback in a thrilling encounter.

It was no surprise that Motherwell were unchanged from the side that defeated Aalesund 3-0 at Fir Park to progress in the Europa League, which meant that Nick Blackman and fellow new signing Esteban Casagolda had to wait to make their debuts from the bench.

While Craig Brown's side had shown an eye for goal, Hibs had displayed a blind spot for stopping them and Graham Stack was given the job of stemming the flow as he replaced Graeme Smith between the sticks.

Paul Hanlon also came into defence in place of the suspended Ian Murray following the Edinburgh side's European exit against Maribor.

But Hibs manager John Hughes would not be swayed from his policy of playing three men up front despite memories of his side's last visit to Fir Park, when they let Motherwell back into the game after having a four-goal lead.

Indeed, it was Hibs who threatened first when Stokes used his strength to ease aside Mark Reynolds and only the outstretched leg of goalkeeper Darren Randolph prevented the striker finding the far corner with his low drive.

Hibs lost six goals to Maribor over two legs and, with Motherwell playing the neater football, the visiting defence was again found wanting after 13 minutes.

Murphy's low ball into the six-yard box was steered past Stack by Sutton, who tested the goalkeeper with another close-range effort then miss-kicked in front of goal after similar moves minutes later.

It took a poor clearance from Reynolds to hand Hibs with a clear-cut opportunity, but Kevin McBride's powerful drive from just inside the penalty box was a nice height for the agile Randolph to palm the ball clear for a corner.

With Riordan in their ranks, however, Hibs can always threaten at set-pieces and his curling ball into the six-yard box was forced across goal by Sol Bamba and Stokes side-footed home from four yards.

Stokes went close to giving a rejuvenated Hibs the lead four minutes into the second half with a curling drive from 20 yards that Randolph did superbly to turn wide of the post with his fingertips.

However, Motherwell settled again and Steven Saunders rose above Hanlon only to head straight at Stack.

A Chris Humphrey cross beat the goalkeeper and crashed off the inside of the post before bouncing clear and, when the winger gathered again, his next ball into the box gave Sutton the chance to head a few feet wide.

It was now an end-to-end affair and a blistering Riordan drive from 14 yards forced Randolph to parry the ball wide.

From the corner, the goalkeeper failed to connect with his punch under pressure from Bamba and Hanlon bundled the ball over the line at the back post.

Humphrey fired into the side netting, but Hibs appeared to put the game beyond the home side when Riordan rolled the ball into the path of Miller, who slotted the ball under the goalkeeper from 12 yards.

Motherwell replied immediately when Nish conceded a penalty by tugging the shirt of substitute Blackman and Murphy tucked the ball away from the spot.
