St Mirren   1 - 1   Motherwell

Highlights - St Mirren 1-1 Motherwell

Highlights - St Mirren 1-1 Motherwell

In-form striker Nick Blackman ensured Motherwell took a share of the spoils against St Mirren.

The Steelmen threatened through Alan Gow and Tom Hateley free-kicks in a bright start from the visitors.

On-loan Blackburn striker Blackman fired over before Gareth Wardlaw's header gave the Buddies the lead.

Blackman equalised when he fired a shot on the turn past Craig Samson before Buddies striker Michael Higdon saw red for two bookable offences.

The visitors were the first to threaten, Gow firing in a 25-yard free kick, that was tipped over the bar by Samson.

Hateley's effort took a deflection and bounced off the post as the Steelmen continued to press.

Blackman fired just over from long range before David van Zanten volleyed narrowly wide as the Buddies looked to force their way into the game.

St Mirren took the lead eight minutes before half-time after a simple cross from the right.

McGowan sent in a superb cross after his corner was cleared back to him and Wardlaw's glancing header found the net.

Higdon almost doubled St Mirren's lead when his free-kick took a deflection but the grounded Darren Randolph blocked well.

'Well defender Mark Reynolds almost turned Jure Travner's low cross into his own net before Wardlaw was booked for a dangerous two-footed challenge on Hateley.

Blackman proved he is worth his weight in gold when he scored a superb equaliser for the visitors.

The striker collected Stevie Hammell's pass on the edge of the box, before firing a scorching drive into the net.

Higdon received his marching orders after fouling Stephen Craigan but the Steelmen could not make their numerical advantage pay dividends.
