St Johnstone 2-0 Motherwell FC highlights: Motherwell's ambition in pushing to challenge for top two spot in current Scottish Premier League standings suffered a halt this weekend as they slump into an away defeat against St Johnstone.
Knowing that a win could put them sitting second in the table, Motherwell were keen on putting on attacking display on their weekend travel to face St Johnstone. However, the away side found themselves in much difficulties as they can't seem to break down the home team, forcing a pretty disappointing first 45 minutes which ended in a goalless draw.
After the break, it was St Johnstone that got things going as they went one goal up on 49 minutes, through Stevie May's effort. That situation forced Motherwell to push further up as they search for an equalizing goal, but instead of leveling the score, the visitor four themselves in further mess as their opponent netted a second goal on 64 minutes from Nigel Hasselbaink, who ensured all three points for this team with that effort.
