Match Report

Youngster Tony Dingwall wrote his name all over this encounter with the steelmen at Fir Park. The midfield man capped a five star display with two superbly taken efforts to earn the Staggies a valuable share of the points.

Ross County will feel they did enough to secure all three points, with Tony Dingwall scoring late in either half. Goals from John Sutton and Henrik Ojaama looked to have ended Kenny Black's tenure as caretaker manager on a winning note.

But the loss of that late leveller means Ross County move off the foot of the Scottish Premiership table. Jim McIntyre's side remain two points behind Motherwell.
Dingwall's opener was one of few highlights of a forgettable opening period and it came in the closing seconds. Jamie Reckord's cross from the left fell to the winger at the back post and though his initial drive was pushed away brilliantly by Motherwell keeper Dan Twardzik, Dingwall drilled the opener low into the corner of the net.
Paul Quinn should have given the visitors a greater cushion early in the second half, but blazed over the bar with the goal gaping after Twardzik had saved from Jake Jervis.

And that was to prove pivotal as Motherwell substitute Lionel Ainsworth helped turn the game in their favour. The substitute created the equaliser for John Sutton, his pace and trickery giving him time and space to plant a cross right on the striker's head only a yard from goal.

County were shocked by that,and they were stunned by Ojaama's strike a few moments later, the Estonian running on unchallenged before smacking a shot beyond County keeper Antonio Reguero.

McIntyre's men were undeterred and Michael Gardyne thought he had brought them level only for his close-range shot to be cleared off the line.

As County scrapped for an equaliser, Twardzik did well to clutch a Jackson Irvine header and watched as Michael Gardyne’s effort clipped the ball against the post.

But just as the game looked to have slipped beyond County, youngster Tony Dingwall rifled the ball past the keeper for the second time, earning the staggies a deserved equaliser, and share of the points.
