St Mirren striker Eamonn Brophy has opened up on why he felt he needed a new challenge in his career. The player joined St Mirren from Kilmarnock at first on a pre-contract agreement. But a loan deal was agreed between the clubs, so he could join the Saints in the January transfer window.

Brophy felt that he needed the move as in the last six months of his time at Rugby Park things had gone stale.

“Some great memories”

“I was at Kilmarnock for three and a half years, and I had some great memories there as everybody knows, I just felt the last six months it went very stale” he said.

“I wasn’t playing as much as I would have liked. It’s football and I just felt like I needed a fresh start, when I spoke to Jim Goodwin I knew this was the place to come” Brophy revealed.

Now Brophy is part of a St Mirren squad that will be looking to defeat Celtic for the second time in the last fortnight when the teams meet tonight.

Confident of a win

The striker is confident that St Mirren can earn a third victory over a member of the Old Firm this season.

“We’ll go into the game confident. We know the task ahead. We know if we are at our best, and Celtic or Rangers have a little bit of an off day, we know we can win these games.

“There’s enough quality in the dressing room to definitely cause both these teams problems. We go into the game confident, knowing we need to be at 100% to get a positive result” Brophy stated.
