Holders Dundee United came from behind twice to keep alive their defence of the Scottish Cup with a 2-2 draw against Motherwell in the quarter-finals today.

John Sutton gave Motherwell the perfect start when the striker headed home in the first minute, but United forward David Goodwillie equalised with a spectacular effort in the 40th minute at Tannadice.

Sutton scored again in the 72nd minute but Motherwell hardly had time to stop celebrating before United substitute Jon Daly forced a replay with the equaliser one minute later.
