St Mirren Reserves defeat Ross County in SPFL Reserve League

The St Mirren Reserves picked up three deserved points in the SPFL Reserve League this afternoon as they defeated Ross County 3-0 at Ralston.

It was a comfortable win for Allan McManus' side as they dominated against their Highland opponents from start to finish. 

The Buddies started brightly with Liam Jamieson, Matthew Grant and Cameron Breadner all having good chances inside the opening 20 minutes.

But it was Alex McCaw who got the scoring underway just after the half hour mark. Kyle Magennis, who played 45 minutes as he makes his comeback from injury, had a shot from inside the box blocked. It fell kindly to McCaw who stroked home from inside the box to put the Buddies 1-0 ahead.

Saints were two up less than 10 minutes later when an exquisite pass from Sam Jamieson on the right channel picked out strike partner Liam Jamieson. The forward charged clear and slotted beyond Ross County goalkeeper Ross Munro. 

County were reduced to 10 men just before half-time with Tom Kelly given his marching orders after he scythed down McCaw who was about to go one-on-one with Munro.

Saints weren't as fluid in the second half and County had an opportunity to get themselves back into the match with 20 minutes remaining when they were awarded a penalty. Max Potter was adjudged to have fouled a County player inside the area, but David Wilson was equal to James Wallace's effort from 12 yards. 

The Buddies grabbed a third in injury time as Lewis Jamieson got his second of the match. The striker tapped home from about a yard out as he profited from a mix-up in the County defence.

St Mirren: Wilson, Grant, Walker, Glover, Girvan, Frew, Breadner, Magennis, S. Jamieson, L. Jamieson, McCaw
Subs: Bodea, Potter, Miller, Smith, McFarlane, Henderson, Jack
