Kilmarnock have gone top of the Championship after a late, late goal to beat rivals Ayr United.
Over 6,000 fans were in attendance on a miserable Ayrshire night as the sides met at Somerset Park for the first time on league business in 28 years.
The hardy crowd weren’t treated to much from Jim Duffy and Tommy Wright ‘s respective sides though, with a scrappy game producing few real chances of note.
However, late on substitute Brad Lyons was felled by Ayr’s Markus Fjortoft to give Killie the chance to win it in the 89th minute.
It was Oli Shaw who stepped up to send the goalkeeper the wrong way and sent the travelling support wild in the Railway End.
The result sends Killie top of the table after a topsy-turvey series of results in the Championship.
Previous leaders Inverness were beaten 1-0 at home by Arbroath, with Billy Dodds’ side unable to recover after Michael McKenna’s goal early in the second half.
Incredibly all five games were 0-0 at half-time but it was only another derby match between Morton and Partick Thistle that ended that way.
Dunfermline took a point in their own derby with Raith Rovers, but Peter Grant’s men remain rooted to the foot of the table.
And Hamilton Accies pulled a little further clear as they beat Queen of the South 1-0 at home.Internet Explorer Channel Network
