On a day that promised to see us get that much closer to safety instead saw us stay in the pit of relegation bother and the cherry on the cake was a horror injury to Paul Wright.
Andy Tod went in very high, and very hard, leaving Wright with a long, deep wound akin to a shark bite.The self same Andy Tod, having clugged Wright out the game, scored to give the home side the lead at half time. The other Andy, of the Smith variety made it 2-0 just after the start of the second half.
Killie did give themselves some hope through a goal from Jim McIntyre though. Big Kev's deep, deep cross was dropping into the box, where J-Mac rose to head home. Taking a sore one from Westwater in the process.
We then decided to chase the precious point. McGowne playing as an auxiliary striker, and was punished for doing so. The home side sliced us open like Tod did to Paul Wright's knee. As Andy Smith got his second (why the blumminy chuff could he not have done that when he played for us?)
We would remain on 37 points. Level with Hibs and 3 points ahead of Motherwell. With two games left. Away at Celtic, where we hadn't won since Robert Prytz was a boy and at home against 6th placed Aberdeen.
Bum = squeaky.
