Goodwillie scores in Rovers win

The striker came on as a second-half substitute to score

Blackburn’s fourth from Mauro Formica’s assist. Kilmarnock took the

lead when, from Paul Heffernan’s 10th minute cross, Grant Hanley

diverted the ball into his own net. However, Rovers were level two

minutes later when Patrick Ada handled and David Dunn netted from

the spot. And it was soon 2-1 to the visitors when home keeper Kyle

Letheren blocked Dunn’s shot only for Jason Roberts to pounce on

the rebound. Rovers were awarded a second penalty on 31 which

Roberts fired home after the striker had been held back as he raced

into the area. Killie’s Paul Heffernan had an effort ruled out for

offside while James Drayton was denied by visiting keeper Paul

Robinson. With 66 minutes on the clock, Goodwillie was brought on

for his debut and on 75 he netted from close range after latching

on to Formica’s header. Killie almost grabbed a late consolation

when Manuel Pascali’s shot was cleared off the line by Bruno
