Saturday 5th November 2016
GARRY Fleming’s 63rd minute goal gave Sons their first away win in almost a year at the Paisley 2021 Stadium this afternoon.
But there were very few fireworks on display in today’s 5th November clash.
A tepid first half which yielded no goals and very little action made way for a slightly better second period in which St Mirren had more possession.
However the only stat that mattered arrived in the 63rd minute when Garry Fleming converted an easy tap-in following a horrendous mistake by the Buddies ‘keeper Jamie Langfield.
Saints came close to grabbing an equaliser on 79 minutes when a flashing header scraped the crossbar with Alan Martin beaten, and the cross bar rescued Sons again on 87 mins as the Paisley team piled on the pressure.
However Sons resolute defending, with Martin in top form, made sure that the three points and the first away win in 335 days was secured.
