Result: Aberdeen fight back from a goal down to beat Motherwell 3-1

Niall McGinn scores twice as Aberdeen come from behind to beat Motherwell 3-1 at Fir Park.

Aberdeen fought back from a goal down to beat Motherwell 3-1 and go second in the SPL table.

Former Everton striker James McFadden started for the home side and it wasnt long before the Fir Park faithful had something to cheer.

John Sutton's disguised ball freed Aden Flint, who kept his composure to give the home side a first minute lead.

Hereafter, Aberdeen had the half's better chances, with Peter Pawlett and Calvin Zola, a summer signing from Burton Albion, striking the ball against the woodwork.

Niall McGinn rifled a 60th minute penalty into the roof of the net to level the scores, and Mark Reynolds gave the away side the lead with a header from 12 yards in the 75th minute.

McGinn grabbed his second goal of the game with less than ten minutes remaining to send his side into second place.
