Match Recap

St Johnstone suffered a 2-1 home defeat to Kilmarnock after a road closure forced them into a late reshuffle of their team. Michael O'Halloran and Richard Foster dropped out of the starting line-up after being caught up in the closure of the A9 following a road-traffic incident near Dunblane at about 12.40pm on Saturday.  Kilmarnock had safely navigated the same route and Stuart Findlay headed them in front early on. And Eamonn Brophy grabbed a winner with his first goal for the Ayrshire club after Steven McLean had levelled two minutes before the break. 

Comments

Stevie Clarke: "It wasn't the prettiest of games but we knew beforehand we'd have to dig in at times and we did that.  We got a break when Wotherspoon's shot came back off the post but I think we'd earned that by that stage. We had pure dogged determination to stay in the game. The quality came from us in the second half. The winning goal was a good example of that."
