MAN BY MAN Craig Gordon: Deserved man of the match award for his last-minute brilliance. 9

Robbie Neilson: Hardly helped by poverty of Mikoliunas play in front of him. 6

Takis Fyssas: Hard, uncompromising and decent distribution of the ball. 7

Steven Pressley: The Scotland defender was sucked deeper than usual but played Hamilton well

Andy Webster: Solid, composed and barely gave Well a striking chance

Rudi Skacel: Did not pose the threat expected of him

Edgaras Jankauskas: Still struggling for full fitness but took goal well. 7

Paul Hartley: Quieter than usual in midfield with ball so often in the air 6

Roman Bednar: Never hid, but also clearly still looking for full match fitness. 6

Saulius Mikoliunas: The biggest surprise was he lasted until half-time before being hooked.4

Julien Brellier: Unfussy but effective performance as defensive midfield anchorman.6

Subs: Stephen Simmons - Helped add second half urgency down right-hand side when he replaced Saulius Mikoliunas, 6


Graeme Smith: Odds-on for man of the match before Gordon's wonder stop.

8 Steven Hammell: Coped with Mikoliunas' threat, but sloppy distribution at times.

6Stephen Craigan: Much improved performance after recent horror leaks at back.

7Willie Kinniburgh: Dealt well with aerial threat of Hearts' front two at all times Paul Quinn: Stuck well to Skacel task but still found him a handful Brian Kerr: Never really on ball as Well preferred to play long from defence Phil O'Donnell: Limped off with groin injury just as Well began to settle Andy Smith: Showed nice touches on right and left, but rarely penetrated6 Shaun Fagan: Moved from right midfield into middle but lacked forward menace.

6 Jim Hamilton: Caught offside too often against wily Pressley. Late sitter cost side. 6 Scott McDonald: Industrious and few nice touches, but well policed Subs: David Clarkson - Real impact as McDonald sub midway through second half, 7. Richie Foran - Decent shift on left, 6.

Marc Fitzpatrick - Given last few minutes, 3
