Killie took on St.Mirren at St.Anthonys on Saturday. Gary Fisher had recovered from injury and returned to the side but injury ruled out Ross Davidson, Jamie Lindsay and David McAuliffe and Daniel McKay is on loan.

Killie started reasonably well but the game quickly became bogged down with bothsides reverting to long balls and there were few clear cut opportunities for either side. After 35 inutes a long clearance from the Saint's goalkeeper wasn't dealt with by the Killie defence and the striker easily turned his marker to score with a low shot.

Killie again started the second half well but after 5 minutes Gary Fisher was shown a red card for a tackle on the St.Mirren skipper. St. Mirren scored right away as Killie did not deal with the resultant free kick and St.Mirren lobbed the ball over the stranded Kyle Good. Thereafter St.Mirren controlled the game and Killie very rarely threatened. Saints scored a third when Killie failed to match a run from midfield. Their fourth came in the final minute when an attempted clearance by Michael Doyle hit Gavin Brown and rebounded into the net-summing up Killie's day.

A poor display from Killie and a big improvement required this week against Motherwell.
