St Mirren could be left ruing what might have been after blowing a great chance to move off the bottom of the table.

Oran Kearney’s side lost 1-0 at home to out-of-form Kilmarnock on Monday night. As a result remain at the bottom of the league table, a point behind Dundee.

Kearney will be gutted that his team failed to defeat a team who hadn’t won in eight games.

The Paisley side did have good chances in the game. Simeon Jackson gave the Kilmarnock defence constant problems, but the goal didn’t come.

Perhaps it wasn’t a shock St Mirren didn’t get the three points. After all, they have only won four games this season. But they were in good form going into the game. They defeated Livingston and got creditable draws against Aberdeen and Hearts.

St Mirren’s next match is a trip to St Johnstone. With Dundee facing Celtic, Kearney will be hoping his side will be off the bottom of the table sooner rather than later. But it is all about points on the board at the moment. And St Mirren are still facing relegation at the moment.

Should the Saints find themselves relegated at the end of the season, they will look back on the loss to Kilmarnock as the one that got away.
