St Mirren end training camp with win over Linfield

St Mirren rounded off their training camp in Northern Ireland with a win over Linfield at Windsor Park. 

Alex Greive and Jonah Ayunga netted first-half goals as Stephen Robinson's men followed up Monday night's 3-0 win over Crusaders with victory over the NIFL Premiership champions. 

It took the Buddies just 90 seconds to hit the front when Greive capped off a well-worked move. The New Zealand international was on hand to knock Ayunga's ball across into the net from close-range. 

Linfield loanee Daniel Finlayson - who completed his temporary move from the Paisley Saints to Linfield last month - levelled for the home side on 19 minutes. The defender slotted home after being teed up by Stephen Fallon.

Saints re-took the lead on 37 minutes when Jonah Ayunga smashed home a stunning strike from inside the area. And the English forward could have notched his second three minutes later when he sent a free header over from close-range. 

It was Ayunga who came closest to extending Saints lead in the second-half. He showed great footwork to fashion the chance but cracked the effort off the bar with substitute Lewis Jamieson slamming the rebound wide. 

Trevor Carson made a big save in the dying minutes to deny Chris McKee and ensure Saints would go home with two wins in the bag.
