Lukas Jutkiewicz proud of late leveller against Hibs
Motherwell goal dazzles commentator
Motherwell striker Lukas Jutkiewicz believes the 6-6 draw with Hibernian at Fir Park ranks among the best matches he has ever played in.
The on-loan Everton striker, 21, netted a candidate for goal of the season with his spectacular injury-time leveller in the 12-goal thriller on Wednesday.
"It was certainly the most exciting game I've ever played in," said Jutkiewicz. "Especially at the climax.
"I don't think I'll experience anything like it in my career again."
An incredible 12 goals on the night, including an unlikely comeback from Motherwell who were 6-2 down at one stage, produced the highest-ever scoreline in Scottish Premier League history.
Unfortunately for Hibs, it must have felt like they lost, but the adrenaline was pumping for a few hours afterwards
The result boosted Motherwell's hopes of securing a Europa League qualifying slot, handing them a one-point advantage over fifth-placed Hibs going into their final match of the season.
However, this season's prize for the best goal has already been handed to Hibs' Anthony Stokes but Jutkiewicz was slightly more concerned with the importance of his strike than its flair.
"Being 6-2 down with 25 minutes left and to come back was pretty special," said Jutkiewicz. "I couldn't have asked for anything better than that.
"In terms of it being so late in the game and how sweet I hit it, it's up there with the best I've scored.
"I didn't think I had too much support, so I just thought I had no time left and why not have a go.
"Everyone was on a massive high. To finish the game like that felt like we had won it.
"Unfortunately for Hibs, it must have felt like they lost, but the adrenaline was pumping for a few hours afterwards."
Motherwell now travel to Ibrox on Sunday to face Rangers in their final match of the season, knowing that if they match Hibs' result against Dundee United, they will automatically qualify for a Europa League slot.
"It keeps things in our hands," said Jutkiewicz. "Although we've got to go to Ibrox on Sunday and match Hibs' result to guarantee us fourth place.
