Steven Naismith netted his eighth Hearts goal of the season

Steven Naismith was gifted his ninth goal of the season as Hearts moved five points clear at the top of the Premiership.

A poor pass-back from Motherwell defender Carl McHugh allowed their visitors to intercept with Naismith converting after 28 minutes.

The hosts lost injured keeper Trevor Carson as a result with Hearts boss Craig Levein watching from the stand.

Curtis Main, Andy Rose and McHugh had chances for Well but couldn’t convert.

Motherwell were in control until Uche Ikpeazu beat Carson to McHugh’s poor ball, allowing Naismith a follow-up to his goal for Scotland against Albania on Monday.

The result means the Tynecastle club are five points clear of champions Celtic after claiming five victories from their opening five matches.
