Video: Michael Smith Scores a Beautiful Hearts Opener v Motherwell

Michael Smith scored a beautiful opening goal for Hearts against Motherwell tonight.

The Jambos full back doesn’t normally chip in with goals, but he was the man to break the deadlock at Fir Park in the first half of their Betfred Cup last-16 clash.

Both teams had struggled to break each other down – with Sean Clare missing a penalty – before Smith popped up with an opener in the 40th minute.

Conor Washington did brilliantly to hold the ball up in the build up – although there are some suggestions of a handball by the Northern Irishman.

He fed Smith high on the right and the full-back cut inside before firing into the bottom corner with his weaker foot:

That is not a goal we were expecting Smith to score.

Hearts made it 2-0 soon after when Jake Mulraney was brought down in the box by Mark Gillespie.

Washington grabbed the ball – taking over from Clare – and emphatically fired home to get his first Hearts goal and his side’s second of the night.
