Motherwell mark first anniversary of the death of captain Phil O'Donnell

Motherwell will use Saturday's match against Inverness to mark the first anniversary of the tragic death of captain Phil O'Donnell. As well as producing a souvenir match programme the Steelmen will perform a pre-match huddle to pay their own respects to their former team-mate.

The club added in a statement: "During that time, the management, players and staff would encourage all 'Well fans to make as much noise as possible to pay proper tribute to a Motherwell great.

"Then keep the noise and support going for the full 90 minutes and hopefully cheer the boys onto what would be a vital win."

O'Donnell died aged 35 after collapsing on the field during an SPL game against Dundee United on December 29 last year.
