Motherwell clinched their first home league win since September with a 3-1 victory over Dunfermline.
After the first-half dismissal of skipper Stephen Craigan, Henrik Ojamaa opened the scoring on his first full start for the club before Nicky Law doubled the hosts' lead.
Andy Kirk restored hope for Dunfermline, but substitute Chris Humphrey netted 10 minutes from time to secure all three points for the Fir Park side.
There first real talking point came in the 18th minute, when Craigan was dismissed by referee Alan Muir following a clash with Andrew Barrowman, which also saw the Dunfermline man receive a yellow card. Craigan appeared to move his head towards Barrowman and Muir wasted little time in flashing a red at him.
Ojamaa repaid manager Stuart McCall's decision to hand him his first ever league start when he fired Motherwell in front after 29 minutes. The striker twisted and turned on the edge of the penalty box before striking a low shot which bounced over the outstretched arms of Iain Turner in the Dunfermline goal.
The visitors responded with a flurry of promising attacks and Joe Cardle brought out an excellent save from Darren Randolph with his powerful close-range effort.
Motherwell started the second half brightly and the home side doubled their lead after 52 minutes. Ojamaa got on the end of Michael Higdon's flick and he laid the ball to Law who unleashed a superb drive into the roof of the net.
In the 63rd minute, Dunfermline gave their small band of travelling supporters some hope when Kirk connected perfectly with Paddy Boyle's cross to leave Randolph with no chance.
The visitors continued their assault on the Motherwell goal and Kirk passed up a glorious opportunity to level the match on 78 minutes when he found space in the box after good work from David Graham, but his strike was inches past the post.
With 10 minutes remaining, Motherwell put the game out of the reach of their opponents, when Robert McHugh latched on to Randolph's long ball and he found Humphrey who coolly slotted the ball past Turner.
