Airdrie shock Killie

Kilmarnock 0-0 Airdrie United (Airdrie win 4-3 on pens)

Airdrie United dumped Kilmarnock out of the CIS Insurance Cup after forcing the second round tie to penalty kicks.

Killie had dominated throughout the game but they were made to pay for their poor finishing in front of goal when the Second Division side won the clash 4-3 on penalty kicks.

The home side had pushed forward right from the outset and could have been ahead after seven minutes.

Stevie Fulton provided the cross and that was met by Jamie Fowler just inside the 18-yard box but he fired just over the crossbar.

Killie were threatening again five minutes later - this time Garry Hay was the provider as he tried to pick out Paul Di Giacomo at the far post but the young striker nodded just over.

Decent save

Killie were unlucky not to take the lead after 25 minutes.

Ally Mitchell's effort was blocked by the Diamonds' defence and the rebound fell to Steve Fulton who unleashed a long, low effort which fell just inches wide of the post.

Airdrie's first real chance came on the half-hour mark but Gordon Marshall foiled Andy Gow.

In 36 minutes, Airdrie's Simon Vella almost sent the ball past his own goalkeeper in an attempt to clear a Killie attack.

Kilmarnock continued to pile on the pressure after the break and Kris Boyd went close six minutes after the restart, nodding just past the post.

Penalty claim

Airdrie almost stunned Killie in 65 minutes when Martin Glancy's shot forced goalkeeper Gordon Marshall into a decent save.

Killie pushed for the winner and Boyd somehow managed to hook the ball wide after Di Giacomo played him in.

Then Killie made a claim for a penalty in the final minute of the game when Armstrong appeared to handle in the area but referee Hugh Dallas was unimpressed.

Kilmarnock continued to apply pressure during extra time and Sanjuan fire over from in front of goal .

The game ended in a stalemate and while only Alan Gow missed from the spot for Airdrie as Docherty, Vella, Harvey and McKeown all netted, misses from Mahood and Hay ended Killie's interest in the competition.
