Motherwell reach Scottish Cup final

GLASGOW: Motherwell will face Celtic or Rangers in the Scottish Cup final on May 19 after Curtis Main scored twice in a comprehensive 3-0 semi-final win over Aberdeen on Saturday.

A second Cup final of the season awaits for the Steelmen who lost 3-0 to Celtic in the League Cup final in November.

Two goals in as many first-half minutes swung the game in Motherwell’s favour at Hampden as Main converted from close range before Ryan Bowman slotted home at the second attempt after his first effort was saved by Joe Lewis. Aberdeen lead Motherwell by 24 points in the Scottish Premiership, but the were also dumped out the League Cup 3-0 by Motherwell back in September. And Main ensured Motherwell would cruise into the final by the same score when he pounced on an error from Kari Arnason before curling home from the edge of the box 24 minutes from time.
