MOTHERWELL went through to the knockout stages of the Premier

Sports Cup after their comfortabl­e win over

Annan put them through as Group F winners.

There was a debut for new signing Callum Slattery who came off the bench in the second period, while there was a debut goal for Justin Amaluzor, who opened the scoring.

Barry Maguire netted in the second half to ensure a decent afternoon for the Fir Park side with the win enabling them to put the midweek defeat to Airdrieoni­ans to bed.

Boss Graham Alexander said: ‘We didn’t talk about making up for Wednesday. We just wanted to win the group and go through.’
