Match Report

As anticipated this replay proved to be tricky as the Rugby Park playing surface. The determined home side produced the best move of the match in the early stages and ended McCafferty forcing Billy Thomson to dive full stop his 20 yarder. Our best chance of the opening half came in the 35th minute when Maurice Malpas and Paul Sturrock combined for the full-back to fire in a shot which was blocked by a prostrate Killie defender. The half ended with Killie on the ascendancy and only Billy Thompson, at full-stretch, prevented McGivern chipping in the opening goal.

That close call obviously prompted us into action because the early part of the second half was dominated by us. Kevin Gallacher struck the bar from a cut-back by Davie Dodds. A goal was only delayed four minutes. From Ian Redford's corner, Davie Dodds fired in a shot which was blocked and Paul Sturrock rammed the ball home from very close in. We could easily have extended our lead had Alan McCulloch not brought off some superlative saves from Kevin Gallacher, Eamonn Bannon and Ian Redford. Having said that, Billy Thomson only just managed to turn a deflected shot round the post which was virtually the home side's only threat of the second half.
