Kilmarnock 2-1 St Mirren

Last updated : 13 September 2010 By Killie Kingdom

Thing are really starting to look a bit brighter for the boys in blue and white stripes - two wins in a row and several great performances, of which is rarely said about our team in seasons gone by.

This day however is no exception as from the start the Paisley Buddies looked the brighter team having the better start, that was until Ayrshire's Finest got the break they needed and then really got the game going. Another thing which has changed in years before now, is that the boys really look to have gelled together and this includes our new signings - who put in a wonderful performance.

Chances for the home side came from Dayton, Sammon, Pascali and Bryson,  all of which were saved by the Buddies keeper. Then came the opening goal thanks to Jamie Hamill finding Dayton out on the wing and passed the ball to him, to let him shoot a great shot into the back of the net.  Kilmarnock 1-0 St Mirren.

One injury worry so far in the form of David Silva who was subbed and replaced by Harry Forrester and even he got his first shots on goal, not a bad try either. St Mirren rarely threatened Cameron Bell Killie's keeper in that half, as the home side kept possession.

2nd half and it took only a few minutes after the restart the St Mirren to score equaliser, no thanks to a gaping Killie defence. Kilmarnock 1-1 St Mirren.  In contrast it did not take much longer for Killie to score again, putting them in front thanks to a dream debut goal for recent signing Eremenko.  Kilmarnock 2-1 St Mirren.

Another injury concern is James Dayton who was replaced by another James (Fowler).  St Mirrens McGowan saw red after a vicious and unnecessary foul on Pasca, shortly after the Buddies pushed forward for the equaliser, thanks to a shot from Wardlaw but Cameron Bell was there to save the shot.

At full time - it stayed Kilmarnock 2-1 St Mirren.
