Kilmarnock   1 - 2   Inverness CT

Kilmarnock v Inverness CT

Highlights - Kilmarnock v Inverness CT

A controversial penalty and a fine Johnny Hayes goal meant the points headed north from Rugby Park.

A quiet first half was sparked into life when Russell Duncan went down in the box from a Momo Sissoko challenge, which Adam Rooney converted.

Kilmarnock wasted several chances, and Hayes made them pay, robbing Frazer Wright before coolly slotting home.

However, Rui Miguel's header from Harry Forrester's cross made for a nervy finish for the Highlanders.

Wright returned to the Kilmarnock eleven after suspension replacing Forrester, while veteran Duncan was recalled to the visitors' midfield with Gil Blumenshtein sidelined through injury.

Duncan had the first attempt of the match, but could only blaze his shot off target.

Kilmarnock's influential Finnish playmaker Alexei Eremenko then carved out an opportunity for his side when he picked out Liam Kelly with a fine pass, but Kelly's first touch let him down and he shot tamely at Ryan Esson in the Inverness goal.

Irish striker Conor Sammon then had a headed chance for the home side, but Ross Tokely was on hand to clear his effort over the bar.

However, the visitors refused to buckle under the home side's pressure and forced three corners in succession, although without carving out a clear-cut chance.

The game was swinging rapidly from end to end, but both defences were sharp enough to prevent either set of attackers from creating anything of note.

With the half-time whistle approaching and still no sign of a goal, Sissoko was adjudged to have brought down Duncan inside the box and referee Euan Norris instantly pointed to the spot.

Rooney coolly slotted the resultant spot-kick past Cammy Bell to claim his seventh goal of the season.

With the Killie players still incensed by the penalty award, Manuel Pascali passed up a great chance to bring the sides level, but headed over the bar from close range.

Manager Mixu Paatelainen had clearly fired up his players in the half-time interval and Sammon went close to equalising when he picked up on Eremenko's through-ball, but, although his lob beat Esson, he had to watch on aghast as his effort went agonisingly wide.

Barely a minute later Eremenko was next to have an effort with a low, rifled, bending effort form 25-yards which flashed just past the post.

Sammon then put the ball past the post from only yards out, with the Rugby Park fans screaming for a penalty for what seemed a handball from Graeme Shinnie, but nothing was awarded.

Hayes then doubled Inverness's lead with a fine finish to claim his third goal in three games, stealing the ball from Wright and slotting the ball past Bell.

Kilmarnock could not be faulted for effort as they strived for an equaliser, but Terry Butcher's team held on for a valuable three points which continue their impressive start to the season.
