Steelmen secure win at Forfar

Motherwell made nine changes to the side that beat Brechin on

Tuesday with only Shuker and fellow trialist Carlos Gazapo keeping

their places in an otherwise youthful line-up at Station Park on

Thursday night. Shuker opened the scoring in the 20th minute when

he beat two men inside the box and smashed home after enjoying the

bounce of the ball, but the Second Division side levelled two

minutes later when Martyn Fotheringham headed home Chris

Templeman’s cross. Forfar continued to give as good as they got and

Gazapo squandered a good chance, but Motherwell substitute Mark

Reynolds blasted a winner from close range with 15 minutes to go

following Chris Humphrey’s corner.
