Scottish Premier League Roundup, Apr. 23

Dundee United narrowed the gap to third-place Hearts to seven

points with a 4-2 win over Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premier

League on Saturday.

Striker David Goodwillie scored twice while Scott Severin and

Craig Conway also got on the scoresheet for United.

Hearts at one time held a 15-point cushion in third but dropped

two more points by surrendering a three-goal lead against

Motherwell to draw 3-3.

Craig Thomson, Rudi Skacel and Ryan Stevenson gave Hearts a

commanding advantage but John Sutton led Motherwell’s fightback

with a double, the second of which came in the 88th minute to grab

his team a point.
