Player ratings: Motherwell v Hearts
Jan 8 2009 Compiled By Neil Cameron
Graeme Smith 7
Had very little to do but was confident with every high ball.
Paul Quinn 8
Didn't give Andrew Driver a sniff.
Mark Reynolds 6
Coasted through this one.
Stephen Craigan 6
Put in some great tackles whenever Well were under pressure.
Stevie Hammell 6
Always a threat with his delivery at free kicks.
Jim O'Brien 6
Lovely backheel led to the goal. Made some decent runs but needed to use the head a bit more.
Keith Lasley 6
Every game is the same. Nice and steady.
Maro Klimpl 6
Slovakian looked solid in holding midfield role.
Stephen Hughes 6
Lovely turn and cross set up the goal.
Chris Porter 7
If he wants a move to Hearts then he went about it the right way.
David Clarkson 6
Nothing dropped for him but he had some nice touches.
Darren Smith - replaced hero Porter with minutes to go, 2.
Jamie Murphy - Sent on to run down the clock, 2.
Not used - Krysiak, Malcolm, Sutton, McGarry, Saunders.
Janos Balogh 5
Could perhaps have done better at Porter's goal.
Robbie Neilson 6
Industrious enough down the right.
Christophe Berra 6
With Rangers and several others watching, the captain had a quiet night.
Marius Zaliukas 5
Outjumped for the opener. Not a great night.
Lee Wallace 6
At least he attempted to attack down his wing.
Ruben Palazuelos 4
Had little effect on proceedings.
Eggert Johnson 6
Does a decent job and at least had a shot at goal.
Michael Stewart 6
Lacked his usual bite and fight in midfield.
Andrew Driver 5
His marker Quinn was always on top. Frustrating evening.
David Obua 3
Was cumbersome and never looked like scoring.
Christian Nade 3
Subbed after contributing zilch.
Calum Elliot - said he expected to be booed and he was right, 3.
Gary Glen - no chance to do anything, 3.
Devidas Cesnauskis - hardly got a touch, 2.
Not used - Kello, McGowan, Templeton, Rapnik.
