    FT: Kilmarnock 0-0 St Mirren (2-3pens)

    So St Mirren go top of Scottish League Cup Group H with two points to Kilmarnock's one following their victory in the penalty shoot-out.

    With League One outfit Dumbarton, League Two's Queen's Park and Lowland League Spartans the other sides in the section, the Buddies will fancy their chances of going through as group leaders with Killie scrambling for one of the best runners-up spots.

    Join us tomorrow for coverage of 15 more group games.

  2. No Mulumbu return to Ayrshire

    FT: Kilmarnock 0-0 St Mirren (2-3pens)

    Kilmarnock looked to be sadly missing the influence of DR Congo midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu tonight, but manager Steve Clarke ruled out a return for the 31-year-old.

    The former West Bromwich Albion man was a standout performer after joining Killie in November as he looked for a new club after being released by Norwich City.

    But Clarke stressed that Mulumbu, who was only a short-term contract, was in negotiations with clubs who could offer a more lucrative deal.

  3. Stubbs praise for Boro's Coulson

    FT: Kilmarnock 0-0 St Mirren (2-3pens)

    On-loan Middlesbrough left-back Hayden Coulsen was the stand-out performer for St Mirren and manager Alan Stubbs was full of praise for the 20-year-old.

    "I like to think I have an eye for a player," he told BBC Radio Scotland.

    "He was someone who excited me before I got him and I would like to thank Middlesbrough and Tony Pulis for allowing him to come here and give him a platform on which he can do really well."

  4. Pressure on Killie - Clarke

    FT: Kilmarnock 0-0 St Mirren (2-3pens)

    Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke was reasonably happy - apart from the penalty shoot-out.

    "Good game, quite open, a good workout for us," he told BBC Radio Scotland.

    "They had moments when they had control. We had moments when we looked like we were in control.

    "Similar amount of chances and I think a draw was a fair result.

    "The penalties we practised yesterday and, to be honest, they were even worse yesterday.

    "St Mirren taking the extra point means they are favourites to top the group and that puts a bit of pressure on us to make sure we qualify."

  5. Stubbs looking for 'marquee signings'

    FT: Kilmarnock 0-0 St Mirren (2-3pens)

    St Mirren manager Alan Stubbs was delighted with his new side's showing.

    "It wasn't a boring 0-0," he told BBC Radio Scotland. "I thought we approached the game well and caused them some problems.

    "For our first competitive game, I have to be pleased with some aspects of the game.

    "Speaking to some of them they said that, when they played Premiership teams, they got a bit of a doing and there did not look a gulf between them.

    "They had to take belief that they belong at this level.

    "The most important thing from tonight was that we managed the game from a fitness point of view and we managed to get an extra point."

    Stubbs indicated that he is looking to add a goal threat having concentrated on working on his defence.

    "Over the next three weeks, we will look to work on that," he said.

    "At times we didn't reward ourselves for some of our good play.

    "It is an area of the pitch where we have good payers, but I hope to add to that and make a few marquee signings."

  6. Buddies worthy of bonus point

    FT: Kilmarnock 0-0 St Mirren (2-3pens)

    St Mirren get what they deserved with that extra point following the penalty shoot-out.

    If you didn't know which of these sides finished fifth last season in the top flight and which were promoted to the top flight, you would have guessed that Alan Stubbs side were the ones with Premiership experience.

    Kilmarnock 0-0 St Mirren
