28 Nov Motherwell 2-2 Hearts: Sow rescues Jambos
By Craig Turnbull at Fir Park
A stunning goal from Osman Sow rescued a point for Hearts in a 2-2 draw with Motherwell.
Louis Moult gave the home side the lead in controversial circumstances, challenging goalkeeper Neil Alexander before bundling the ball home.
But Hearts responded quickly as Sow’s incisive pass found Juanma in behind the defence and Spaniard coolly chipped the goalkeeper for his 9th of the season.
Both sides had further chances to score before Motherwell seized the initiative when Marvin Johnson netted a fine solo effort.
However, they were helpless to prevent the equaliser when Sow picked up the ball from 30 yards and an unleashed a powerful effort into the top corner.
Sam Nicholson had a glorious chance to win the fantastic match right at the end but he blazed over the bar from close range.
Robbie Neilson’s men drop to third in the table while Motherwell remain in the relegation play-off spot.
