The loss of an early goal proved decisive in this encounter. Although we had the better of things for most of the match, we failed to find a way through Killie's firm defence. Typifying our luck was the save Marshall made from Kjell Olofsson in the 28th minute when only a great block prevented us leveling the scores. Capping an unhappy afternoon were a recurrence of Steven Pressley's foot injury forcing him into an early departure and Lars Zetterlund breaking his nose late in the match.
