Liam Kelly's early penalty put Kilmarnock ahead but St Mirren managed a comeback

Liam Kelly fired Kilmarnock ahead from the penalty spot after just four minutes when James Dayton was brought down inside the box.

St Mirren pushed for an equaliser and Bell made three fantastic saves before finally conceding to Paul McGowan's penalty midway through the second half. There were late chances for Jim Goodwin and David Barron, but the Rugby Park side held out for a point.
