Cameron at the double in Killie Youth Cup triumph

in Match Reports December 13, 2017

A double from Innes Cameron helped Kilmarnock reach the next round of the Scottish FA Youth Cup with a 3-1 win over Hearts.

Aidan Keena gave the visitors the lead with a header off the underside of the bar after both sides had squandered chances in the opening stages at Rugby Park.

But it was to be Cameron who changed the complexion of the tie, making a difference with his power and finishing ability.

The striker's first saw him find space to squeeze the ball through Kelby Mason's legs at the ball trickled over the line.

His second saw him rewarded for chasing what appeared to be a lost cause but a mix up between goalkeeper Mason and defender Bartolemiej Gadja. Cameron continued his run and stole in ahead of the pair to tap home.

Killie were now dominating the match and Alex Samizadeh gave the crowd a goal to savour.

With his back to goal, he produced a crisp turn before unleashing a lovely curling shot past Mason.

Hearts tried to find a way back into the match but some fine defending from the home side ensured Killie's name will be in the hat for the fifth round.
