PENALTY STATS ALL SQUARE
The excitement of Tuesday night’s victory at Ayr United was our 6th encounter with the dreaded spot kicks and our first for 8 years. In the same competition back in 2009/10, we lost out at Inverness after a 1-1 draw. Sixteen years before that we had mixed fortunes, winning at home against Stranraer after a 0-0 draw before losing in the next round away to Meadowbank following a 1-1 draw.
Our other two penalty shoot outs came in the League Cup and both in 1994/95. We won at Berwick after a 0-0 draw then lost in the next round away at Falkirk after a 1-1 draw.
Does anyone remember these eventful nights?
