Former York City striker Ryan Bowman was on target as Motherwell defeated Aberdeen 3-0 in their Scottish Cup semi-final at Hampden Park.
The Steelmen went in front in the twentieth minute when Richard Tait stole down the left and squared for ex-Middlesbrough striker Curtis Main to tap home.
Two minutes later, Bowman seized upon a sliced defensive clearance, held off Kari Arnason and converted at the second attempt after goalkeeper Joe Lewis had initially blocked.
Main then sealed the victory midway through the second-half when breaking clear and calmly lifting over the advancing Lewis from the edge of the box.
“The boys were fantastic today,” Bowman later told BBC Scotland. “It’s unbelievable. The dressing room is fantastic. A fantastic team-spirit and we wanted it more than them.”
Motherwell will meet either holders Celtic or Rangers in the final.
