There was expectation that Kilmarnock would find it easy to do the double over the Edinburgh side just as they did back at Tynecastle earlier, however this game proved just the opposite and Hearts left Ayrshire with 3 points.
When the whistle blew both sides had decent chances, Eremenko and Kelly were just two of those, for Kilmarnock that went wide of the mark. However in his 2nd start this season Rui Miguel stepped up and shot the ball passed Kello's legs and opened the scoring for Kilmarnock, thanks to an assist from a Pascali cross. Shots from Templeton and Wallace went wide also, another shot from Templeton was cleared by Fraser Wright.
Kilmarnock were only ahead till late on in the second half when Elliot score the equaliser for Hearts from close range. Both teams were desperate to get the winner and Frasr Wright's shot was saved by the Hearts keeper then quickly came Eremenko with his shot with was then headed towards the goal and Zaliukas just managed to clear the shot, however it could quite easily have gone into his own teams net.
Into the dying minutes of the game and Sammon was ruled offside. Fate then had it in for Kilmarnock as a Gary Glen shot was initially saved by Cameron Bell but another wave of attack saw Elliot score a double header to make 2-1 to the visitors.
Garry Hay looked crestfallen after seeing the goal going into the net, as Bell should have saved the shot for somehow didn't. It was Killie's turn to need the equaliser and Manuel Pascali's shot was saved by the Hearts keeper. Shortly before the whistle blew a corner came in for Killie and the shot was saved, Hearts then went on the counterattack leaving half of the home defence back at the penalty box.
Stephen Elliot could of have his hattrick had it not been for Cameron Bell.
