馬瑟韋爾1-2聖約翰斯通。暫停時的兩個進球使客隊獲勝

最後更新於.從蘇格蘭超級聯賽部分

斯蒂文-梅讓馬瑟韋爾驚呆了,在瘋狂的停頓時間裡,兩端都有進球,搶走了聖約翰斯通本賽季的第一場蘇格蘭超級聯賽的勝利。

馬瑟韋爾在他們的禁區內大放異彩,並在梅撲出之前準備好了平局。

這名前鋒抓住了主場的混亂,在聖約翰斯通的支持者的狂熱和歡呼聲中將球打進。

這是臨時老闆史蒂文-哈梅爾在馬瑟韋爾執教期間的第一次痛苦失敗,他是永久取代格雷厄姆-亞歷山大的競爭者之一。

  • 沒有反應,因為它發生了

在大多數情況下,這看起來是兩支球隊之間的爭奪,沒有信心。馬瑟韋爾,被他們在斯萊戈流浪者手中絕望地退出歐洲賽場而嚇呆了。聖約翰斯通,正在努力擺脫上個賽季的陰影,以及為保級而進行的降級賽的陰影。

那一屆,聖約翰斯通是聯賽中得分最低的球隊,距離很遠。他們在對陣希伯尼安的比賽中毫無還手之力,而當西奧-貝爾馳騁在球門前時,對利亞姆-凱利的射門又一次證明了他們缺乏狠勁。

自從1月份從加拿大來到珀斯以來,貝爾還沒有得分。不過,他是一個強大的標本,有一個整齊的觸摸,並在把墨菲放進開場時顯示了這兩個元素。

這名前鋒用他的身體緊緊抓住Ryan McGowan的耙球,並巧妙地將胸口對準Murphy的路徑。在中場右側,這位老練的邊鋒低空掠過利亞姆-凱利。

馬瑟韋爾幾乎立即作出回應,康納-希爾茲笨拙的半凌空抽射偏出了門柱。聖約翰斯通在中場休息前幾乎將他們的領先優勢擴大了一倍,當時Considerine看起來準備將Carey的任意球捅進球門,但Paul McGinn巧妙地搶先一步。

在下半場,有更多最後的英雄主義。亞歷克斯-米切爾巧妙地將球從喬-埃弗德手中推開,在聖約翰斯通的門前飛奔。

當墨菲將球傳給貝爾時,桑德勒-索爾霍姆-約翰森也做了同樣的事情,他本來有一個黃金機會來殺死比賽。然後,在最後幾分鐘,是康斯坦丁自己,他在希爾茲和一個開放的球門之間蹣跚而行,在米切爾把肖恩-戈斯的榴彈炮送到後面之前,他的頭幾乎被取下來。

這不過是緊張的結局的前奏。高斯開出角球,彎腰的索爾霍姆-約翰森得到了一些東西,然後球通過凱里的觸碰無可奈何地晃過了雷米-馬修斯。

這看起來是決定性的時刻。主場的支持者們當然也這麼認為。他們沒有考慮到聖約翰斯通的血氣方剛。

卡勒姆-戴維森的球隊贏得了自己的角球。馬瑟韋爾處理了最初的傳球,但沒能清除第二個傳球。凱里站了出來,在無人盯防的情況下,頭球攻門得手。梅走了過來,抓住他的隊友的傳球,用他的右腳第一次刺進了球門。

客場一片混亂。聖約翰斯通和戴維森贏得了一場偉大的勝利。

馬瑟韋爾在很長一段時間內都在喘氣。他們沒有牙齒和浪費。最後的球走錯了方向,交付沒有完成,機會被浪費了。

哈梅爾是全職經理工作的有力競爭者,讓馬瑟韋爾恢復他們的魔力將是他優先考慮的問題。

聖約翰斯通從來都不缺乏頑強的精神。在90分鐘內,他們的防守非常頑強,康西丁和米切爾尤其引人注目。他們也找到了難得的進攻機會,卡勒姆-戴維森需要看到更多這樣的激情。

儘管勝利的滋味是甜的,但聖約翰斯通的老闆會對幾周內的第二個遲來的進球感到惱怒。


Last updated on .From the section Scottish Premiership

Stevie May stunned Motherwell to snatch St Johnstone's first Scottish Premiership win of the season in a crazy stoppage-time spell featuring goals at both ends.

Motherwell peppered their box and were set for a draw before May pounced.

The striker seized upon confusion in the home box to prod home before a wild and jubilant patch of St Johnstone supporters.

It was an agonising first defeat in the Motherwell dugout for interim boss Steven Hammell, who is among the contenders to replace Graham Alexander on a permanent basis. • None Reaction and as it happened

For the most part, this looked every inch a scrap between two teams shorn of confidence. Motherwell, stupefied by their desperate European exit at the hands of Sligo Rovers. St Johnstone, toiling to escape the dark shadows cast by last season and the relegation play-off required to stay in the division.

That term, St Johnstone were the league's lowest scorers by a distance. They were toothless against Hibernian and the lack of ruthlessness was evident again when Theo Bair galloped through on goal but shot tamely at Liam Kelly.

Bair has yet to score since arriving in Perth from Canada in January. He is a powerful specimen, though, with a neat touch, and showed both elements when putting Murphy in for the opener.

The forward used his body to muscle on to a raking ball from Ryan McGowan, and chested delicately in to Murphy's path. From right of centre, the veteran winger swept low beyond Liam Kelly.

Motherwell almost replied immediately, Connor Shields' awkward half-volley swerving off a post. St Johnstone nearly doubled their lead before the break when Considine looked set to stab home a Carey free-kick, but Paul McGinn nipped smartly ahead of him.

In the new half, there were more last-ditch heroics. Alex Mitchell slid superbly to prod the ball away from Joe Efford, racing through on St Johnstone's goal.

Sondre Solholm Johansen did likewise when Murphy squared for Bair, who would have had a golden opportunity to kill the game. Then, in the dying minutes, it was Considine himself, lurching his massive frame between Shields and an open goal, before Mitchell nearly had his head taken off sending a Sean Goss howitzer behind.

It was but a prelude to the nerve-shredding finale. Goss bent in a corner, the stooping Solholm Johansen got something on it, before the ball bobbled inexorably past Remi Matthews via Carey's touch.

That looked like the decisive moment. The home support certainly thought so. They didn't reckon for St Johnstone's bloody-mindedness.

Callum Davidson's men won a corner of their own. Motherwell dealt with the initial delivery, but could not clear the second. Up stepped Carey, unmarked, to caress a header across goal. Up stepped May, stealing in, seizing on his team-mates pass, stabbing home first-time with his right foot.

Chaos in the away end. A mighty win for St Johnstone and Davidson.

Motherwell huffed and puffed for long spells. They were by turns toothless and wasteful. Final balls went astray, deliveries unfinished, opportunities squandered.

Hammell is a strong contender to land the manager's job on a full-time basis, and giving Motherwell back their mojo would be high on his list of priorities.

St Johnstone have never lacked doggedness. For 90 minutes, they defended stoutly, with Considine and Mitchell particularly compelling. They also found a rare flourish of attacking incision, and Callum Davidson needs to see more of that kind of panache.

As sweet as the victory will taste, the St Johnstone boss will be irked at the concession of a second late set-piece goal in as many weeks.
