Match Report

We made it five consecutive league wins, but had to come from behind to do so. Killie definitely had the edge in an exciting first half, at the end of which the only surprise was that there had only been one goal - and even that was from a missed penalty which Sieb Dyksfra saved only for Roberts, the original taker to follow up and net.

Second half was a different story. And after Mark Perry equalised there was only going to be one winner. Gary McSwegan's introduction was the catalyst to victory. The sub scored the second with a shot on the turn and then raced over half the length of the park to tee-up the third which was converted bv Kiell Olofsson.
