Scottish Cup: Motherwell's Twenty Year Itch

Motherwell fans who give credence to such things as fate and coincidence will be taking strength ahead of Saturday’s Scottish Cup Final.

It was 20 years ago that Tommy McLean’s side brought the trophy back to Fir Park after that crackerjack of a game with brother Jim’s Dundee United.

An Old Firm free, Hampden belter of a game.

Twenty years ago today in fact.

The 13 Motherwell players who featured were:

Ally Maxwell, Luc Nijholt, Chris McCart, Craig Paterson, Tom Boyd, Ian Angus, Jim Griffin, Phil O'Donnell, Davie Cooper, Iain Ferguson, Dougie Arnott, Colin O'Neill, Stevie Kirk

Angus, Ferguson, O’Donnell and Kirk, from the bench, scored the goals that delivered Motherwell to the promised land after 120 minutes of drama.

More of the same on Saturday?
