Match Report

Kilmarnock secured their first win of the Viaplay League Cup section with a dominant display at Rugby Park. In our first competitive match at the Premier League outfits ground it was one that the hosts ran out comfortable winners.

Annan had early claims for a penalty but these were quickly extinguished as the offside flag came to the rescue of Kilmarnock. The hosts then hit back immediately as Josh Dixon was harshly adjudged to have handballed. Daniel Armstrong converted from the resultant penalty to put Annan behind after just 5 mins. The home side then didn’t have to wait long and grab control of the game as a Fraser Murray goal doubled the lead on 16 mins.

Annan manager Peter Murphy made changes for the start of second half and this included a debut for on-loan Motherwell defender Sam Campbell. Unfortunately, this didn’t change the game in Annan’s favour as five minutes into the half and Innes Cameron had put the game out of sight with a third for the hosts.
