Arsenal striker Mika Biereth made the move to Scotland this summer as he joined Motherwell until the end of the season. The young star put in a fantastic performance on his return from injury this weekend.

Earlier this season, Mika Bierith put in a fantastic performance on his debut after providing a goal and an assist as a substitute to help turn the game around against Hibernian and earn his new side their first win of the season.

He then came on against St. Mirren in the cup before suffering a knee injury that ruled him out until this weekend. The Arsenal loanee came off the bench to win a penalty and eventually convert with 15 minutes remaining and the scoreline at 3-1.

Bierith then assisted Connor Wilkinson in the 88th minute to make it 3-2, before Luca Ross scored a 94th-minute equaliser.

The young striker was only on the pitch for 15 minutes, but he managed to score a penalty and set-up another to get his side a point against Ross County on Saturday. He also won two of his four duels during the match.

Motherwell boss Stuart Kettlewell on Mika Biereth: “He was excellent when he came on. We know he’s got quality. He’s still a young lad and going through the development phase in his career but coming from a club like Arsenal, we know he’s a good player and previously playing in Holland, has been a factor in us thinking he can play here.”

“We are delighted with the impact. You don’t ever know it is going to be like that from the first off but with the bits we’ve seen in training, he looks like a guy who can excel at this level.”
