Match Report

With Kilmarnock already relegated and our place in the U.E.F.A Cup already secured, there was little at stake as we took on Killie down at Rugby Park, on a greasy pitch we got off to a flyer. Killie newcomer Alan ward muffed a clearance in the first minute and Tom McAdam ran some 40 yards in on goal before beating Jim Stewart.

Killie fought back and lan Falls equalised in the 21st minute. The home side gave us a hard time for the remainder of the match in an attempt to bow out of the top ten in style. However it was not to be because another defensive slip up allowed a Billy Williamson pass to find Paul Sturrock and Paul cracked in a 12 yarder with eight minutes left which ended a dismal recent run.
