Kilmarnock’s new number 10 got off the mark in his first league start with a fine header followed by an excellent finish to ensure the Ayrshire club maintained their perfect league record.

A dominant start from Tommy Wright’s side saw an early flurry of chances with Robinson and Blair Alston going close with efforts. Robinson’s link up play continued to cause problems for the Hamilton defensive pairing of Brian Easton and Jamie Hamilton and it took last-ditch blocks to deny the attacker from making an important breakthrough in the first half.

The home side started the second half brightly forcing Zach Hemming into an important save however a few moments later the deadlock was broken in style. Brandon Haunstrup pushed up the field and controlled the ball well before producing an impressive cross on the half volley and the leaping Scott Robinson met it wonderfully to direct his header past Fulton and into the net.

Kilmarnock weren’t finished there, and nine minutes later a fine counter attack double the visitors lead. Chris Burke’s intelligent play created the space as he made a run down the wing. He played a pass to Polworth who had a two on two and his pass found Scott Robinson, who showed composure before shifting the ball and curling his effort into the corner of the net.

It was a remarkable first start for Scott Robinson and a great win for Kilmarnock in front of their 1356 away support.
