McCall frustrated by window
Stuart McCall revealed he had endured his most frustrating two days as a manager after failing to soften the blow of Motherwell`s semi-final defeat by Rangers with a new signing.
McCall had been seeking a new forward after losing Nick Blackman and Alan Gow in January but saw five potential deals collapse in little over 24 hours.
The Motherwell manager saw his main target pull out moments after Sunday`s 2-1 Hampden loss against Rangers in the Co-operative Insurance Cup and continued to suffer frustration until late on Monday.
McCall, whose side host Kilmarnock in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League, lost four players from an already thin squad last month with just Steve Jones and Gavin Gunning coming in.
The former Bradford boss, who had previously been in for David Healy before the Northern Ireland striker moved to Rangers, said: "I`ve got to say, the last 48 hours are probably the most frustrated I`ve been as a manager.
"On the back of the defeat against Rangers, I put my phone back on after the game, the boy I thought I had got unfortunately had a bit of a family crisis and has to stay down south until the summer. That happens, it was unfortunate.
"The second target, we couldn`t match what he was being offered in England.
"The third target, which we always knew was going to be there and would have been a good one, unfortunately his club couldn`t get a couple of strikers in which they thought they were absolutely certain to get.
"The fourth one got offered more money to go to America.
"The fifth one was 50-50. In fairness to him, because we came in so late, he had already given his word to an English club last week.
"He was still keen and up to quarter to eight we were still hopeful of getting him. It was really, really frustrating.
"But you try to get your top target in and I really thought we were going to get him."
McCall will continue his search, in a more limited pool, while hoping youngsters from within his ranks can push through.
But he did take some solace from the final hours of the transfer window as he kept his Hampden team intact and saw Kilmarnock weakened by the sale of Conor Sammon to Wigan.
Mixu Paatelainen believes he has been left with the "impossible" task of Conor Sammon after the Irishman signed for Wigan on transfer deadline day.
The cash-strapped Rugby Park club received a welcome fee reported to be around #600,000 with the possibility of add-ons for the 24-year-old striker, who has hit 18 goals in 27 games for Killie this season.
However, asked how difficult it would be to replace the big striker, the former Finland international replied:
"It is very difficult. Impossible if you ask me now.
"Hopefully we can replace him and his goals but it won't be easy.
"Players who can score 18 or 20 goals in more or less half a season cost millions of pounds which obviously we don't have.
"We can't spend a penny on transfers.
"We are looking for free transfers and youngsters who have the talent who are looking for the opportunity to do well."
To that end, Paatelainen has recruited Kieran Agard on loan but he does not expect the Everton striker to take up the slack.
"I don't think Kieran will do exactly what Conor will do," he said.
"He gets behind defences and uses his pace but he is a different to Conor.
"However, we welcome him and he deserves his opportunity and hopefully he does well for us."
Despite the worry of where his goals will come from Paatelainen is relaxed about Kilmarnock's role as a feeder club and is hoping he can use the example of Sammon to entice players in the future.
Silva sinks Well
David Silva's late header against Motherwell gave Kilmarnock all three points in a Clydesdale Bank Premier League clash at Fir Park which only came to the boil in the final stages.
After a dull first half the game livened up and Well goalkeeper Darren Randolph made a fine save from Rui Miguel before Steven Hammell beat Cameron Bell with a free-kick from 25 yards only to see the ball hit the crossbar on its way over.
However, in the 81st minute Killie defender Tim Clancy sent in a great cross from the right which allowed Silva, on for Willy Aubameyang with less than 20 minutes remaining, to score the winner from close range.
In a dramatic finale, Kilmarnock skipper Garry Hay picked up a straight red card for a foul on Chris Humphrey but the visitors held out.
The visitors had lost their top two goalscorers going into the game with Conor Sammon having signed for Wigan on transfer deadline day and midfielder Jamie Hamill suspended.
Midfielder Alexei Eremenko returned from a ban while French striker Aubameyang replaced Sammon to make his first start.
Well manager Stuart McCall took the opportunity to freshen up his side as Steve Jones and Esteban Casagolda came in for Tom Hateley and John Sutton, who both started on the bench.
The lashing rain and driving wind which arrived in time for kick-off did little to help the spectacle but in the fourth minute Jamie Murphy raced onto Keith Lasley's long ball and flicked it over the advancing Bell, only for Mohamadou Sissoko to get back to clear.
Moments later Humphrey had an angled drive from just inside the box after getting past Hay, but Bell was in the right place to gather.
Kilmarnock came back into the game with the talented Eremenko pulling the strings in midfield, although a cheeky attempt at a lob in the 19th minute from 40 yards failed to find the target as Randolph raced back after making a clearance.
Liam Kelly was booked in the 32nd minute for a foul on Lasley as referee Stevie O'Reilly tried to put an end to the infringements which had begun to mount up.
The home side won the first corner of the game three minutes later but it was easily defended by the visitors.
Five minutes before the break Killie defender Frazer Wright was carried off on a stretcher after a clash with Motherwell defender Steven Saunders, to be replaced by James Fowler.
Motherwell started the second half better and in the 50th minute midfielder Steve Jennings slipped in Murphy but under pressure from Fowler, his effort from 14 yards lacked the power to trouble Bell.
At the other end Clancy found himself racing into the box with time and space but dragged his shot wide of the far post.
The Steelmen stepped up the pace and in the 56th minute Humphrey's low corner from the left almost sneaked past Bell.
But in the 61st minute it was Killie came closest to opening the scoring when Rui Miguel got on the end of a Hay cross but his flick was saved down at the near post by Randolph.
The Steelmen stormed back and Bell made a good point-blank save from Murphy after he had worked his way past Sissoko.
As the game appeared to be swinging towards the home side, Well defender Steven Hammell beat Bell with a free-kick from 25 yards but it struck the top of the crossbar before going over.
Bell made another good block from Jennings but in the 81st minute Silva raced into the box to get on the end of a Clancy cross to head in the winner.
However, before the final whistle Hay picked up a straight red card for a blatant foul on Humphrey as Motherwell broke.
