Fortune favours Bhoys at Fir Park

It was his first goal since a double against St Johnstone in August and came at exactly the right time to stretch the visitors’ winning run to four games for the first time this season.

The £3.8million signing from Nancy, who has failed to impress since arriving at Parkhead, replaced Danny Fox and, with almost his first touch, fired a glorious shot past Motherwell goalkeeper John Ruddy.

Georgios Samaras’ 14th-minute opener had been cancelled out before the interval by goals from Lukas Jutkiewicz and Mark Reynolds.

Aiden McGeady levelled in the 51st minute and Barry Robson had a penalty saved by Ruddy before Fortune fired in the winner.
