Stephen Robinson believes that Motherwell had a perfectly good goal chopped off in their 0-0 draw with Hibs.

The Well played some good stuff against a Hibs team who had won their opening three matches, looking like the dominant team in large spells. That said, they couldn’t find a route to goal that would have given them a first three points of the season.

Jordan White came very close to scoring, putting the ball beyond Hibs goalkeeper Ofir Marciano with a superb volley. It was ruled out though as Sherwin Seedorf was deemed to be blocking the Israeli’s line of vision.

It was a cruel blow for Motherwell who would have been worthy winners should they have managed to find some luck in the final third. It didn’t happen for them as their best performance of the term to date was only rewarded with a point.

“I thought it was a very good performance,” said Robinson (Motherwell FC). “I thought our performance deserved a win. I’ve watched the goal back, I’ve seen the screenshot, and he (Seedorf) wasn’t in line with the ball.

“He wasn’t in the goalkeeper’s way, which is the excuse the referee gave and it comes off their player. We should be leaving here with a 1-0 win, sometimes you get them and I don’t think it should have been disallowed. What we would give for V.A.R. up here.

“It’s been coming. I thought the first two games we had a lot of possession without taking our chances, the Livingston game was a really poor game but we put everything together today.

“We had very good performances and we are very unfortunate not to win the game. I thought we dominated. That’s a very good Hibs team and it just shows how good we can be. The boys know they played well.”
