Match Recap

Lee Erwin's late penalty put Kilmarnock in the last 16 of the Scottish Cup at the expense of Ross County.

The striker's third goal of the season came after the red-carded Tim Chow was judged to have fouled Rory McKenzie. (Pictured right).

But there was even later drama when County goalkeeper watched his header from a corner saved on the line by Killie counterpart Jamie MacDonald.

McCarey was adamant the ball had crept over the line at the corner but it was not given.

Comments

Steve Clarke: "We were poor by our recent standards today, but I felt that we just shaded it. As for the penalty, it looks like we may have got the rub of the green, which you need on days like today, if you are going to progress. I'm delighted for Lee  [Erwin]. He’s been working really well since we came back from the winter break so we’ve have a couple of good weeks training.

"Lee has shown up really well so I don’t know what’s happened over the break but he’s obviously gone away and re-assessed himself. He’s come back and shown his qualities in training and that’s what I told him before I put him on. I said ‘go on and do what you do in training’ and don’t get too uptight about it. Hopefully that goal will start the second half of the season for Lee and he’ll do better in the second half than he did in the first half. He’s a striker and strikers live for their goals. They don’t think about missing, they just think about getting a hold of the ball. Kris Boyd our regular penalty taker was off the pitch and Lee had the confidence to take it, which is good."
