Last meeting in League Cup
Kilmarnock 3 Dunfermline 4
Tuesday 20th September 2005, Rugby Park


Having taken just two points from the opening seven league matches of the 2005-2006 the Pars travelled to Rugby Park to face a Kilmarnock side that had defeated them just ten days before.

In just seven minutes Jamie McCUNNIE sent a fine shot into the far left of the net from 25 yards. 0-1

80 seconds later Liam Horsted was in good position on the left receiving a Yannick Zambernardi free kick to send the ball dangerously along the six yard line and a good leap from Derek YOUNG provided a straight forward header into the net. Two nil up in less than 8 minutes.

Eight more minutes and the Pars went into an incredible three goal lead. A McCunnie clearance away from the Dunfermline penalty box dropped nicely for Bartosz Tarachulski and although the home fans were appealing for a foul as the Pole brushed off Gordon Greer the big striker advanced on goal and released a good shot that Combe beat away but only as far as Derek YOUNG would couldn’t fail to score from 18 yards. 0-3

Kris Boyd got a goal back in 8th minute of the second half before in 64th minute, Man of the Match Derek YOUNG slotted in at an angle from the right to complete an impressive hattrick. 1-4

That should have settled it but an own goal when Naismith`s cross from the right was deflected into his own goal by Scott WILSON from inside his six yard box just nine minutes later. 2-4

In the third minute of added time Kris BOYD drove a 25 yard free kick straight through the defensive wall to cut the deficit to one but it was too late to do anything other than change the complexion of the scoreline in a game that the Pars won easily.
