Lee Erwin put the Ayrshire team ahead just after the hour, and a double by Mikael Ndjoli confirmed the win.

 

Comments

Steve Clarke: ""I thought we were professional from start to finish and we got the goals eventually. We created chances especially early on in the first half and their goalkeeper made some good saves and they had some good blocks. Patience and a little bit of quality got us the win that we wanted.
"Credit to Spartans, they were set up really well and defended the spaces well. They didn’t allow us to get behind them too often in the first half, which is why I made the change at half time.

"Stephen O’Donnell gives us a little bit more width on the right. Ross Millen had done well but he’s more a defensive full-back than an attacking full-back so having been a full-back myself I knew what was required and thankfully it paid off.  They took St Mirren to penalties tonight. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it is a strange competition.   We’ve won twice and drawn one and St Mirren haven’t won a game and they have six points. We have to make sure on Saturday that we finish the job we started at home. Queen’s Park will get the full respect, the same as Spartans got tonight as you saw with the team I put on the park."

"Kris is the type of centre forward who can play with anybody.  Whoever plays with Kris, he normally let them know what to do and where to run. It was good to see Lee and Kris, they combined well at times. It was nice for Lee to get a goal and the first goal was really important for us as well.
"He came off the bench and made an impact. Obviously, the game was more open at that stage and Spartans had tired a bit and I thought there might be a few chances towards the end and Mikael has shown, albeit at lower levels, that he’s a goalscorer and he showed that again today."
