Aberdeen's UEFA Cup qualification hopes suffered a big blow on Saturday as they went down 3-1 at home to Motherwell in the Scottish Premierleague.

The Fir Park side swept to victory in a game they never looked liked loosing. Kevin McBride fired Well into the lead from the penalty spot after Scott McDonald was tripped in the box. A sensational goal 35-yard lob from Jim Hamilton then saw Motherwell racdouble their advantage. Jimmy Calderwood's men managed to pull one back before half-time when they were awarded a dubious penalty. Markus Heikkinnen scored the rebound after Motherwell keeper Gordon Marshall managed to save Darren Mackie's original effort.

Jimmy Calderwood's men piled on the pressure in the second half, but the resilient Motherwell defence held out and the visitors sealed the victory after 71 minutes with a goal from Scott MacDonald. The victory has all but assured Motherwell of a top-six finish with the league due to split after 33 games. However, Aberdeen stay fourth, a point behind Hibernian who now have a game in hand.

Meanwhile, Inverness managed a 1-0 win at home to Kilmarnock to keep their slim hopes of a top-six finish alive. A Barry Wilson goal after 34 minutes was enough to seal the win in what was a close encounter at Rugby Park.

With basement dwellers Dundee United occupied in Tennent's Scottish Cup action, city rivals Dundee managed to pull away from the relagation zone with a 2-1 win over Dunfermline. Despite trailing at half time, a Steve Lovell penalty after 56 minutes and a goal from Brent Sancho - who latched on to Lovell's through ball to finish from 10 yards out after 62 minutes - all but assured Dundee Premierleague football next season. Darren Young's early strike had put the visitors in front at Dens Park.
