Motherwell's Scottish Premiership survival hopes received a huge boost courtesy of a 3-1 win over Kilmarnock, which relegated St Mirren.

St Mirren's relegation from the Scottish Premiership was confirmed as Motherwell gave their survival hopes a shot in the arm with a 3-1 win over Kilmarnock.

The hosts secured a crucial win in their bid to avoid the relegation play-off, with Scott McDonald and Lee Erwin on target in the first half.

Josh Magennis pulled one back in the 53rd minute, but late nerves were assuaged by Lionel Ainsworth's stoppage-time goal.

Ian Baraclough's men, meanwhile, are three points behind Ross County and Kilmarnock.
