A FOOTBALLER from Troon marked his comeback from injury in the best way possible yesterday, Wednesday May 24.

Innes Cameron notched the third goal for Kilmarnock last night as they defeated Dundee United 3-0 at Tannadice in the cinch Premiership tie.

It was only the second away win of the season for Derek McInnes' men, though it could prove to be their biggest victory of the season.

They went into the match in 10th position in the league, one point above the relegation play-off spot and three points ahead of their opponents in last place.

With only two games of the season remaining, they knew a win would mean avoiding automatic relegation.

And Kyle Vassell gave the Ayrshire side the perfect platform with twofirst half goals to give them a 2-0 lead after the first 45 minutes.

Though 'Vass' had to come off injured after the hour mark - and was replaced by Troon man Innes Cameron.

Cameron joined Kilmarnock's youth set up back in 2014, after playing for his local Troon Boys Club growing up.

He made his first team bow in 2016 - though has been loaned out on five occasions since - including one spell at Ayr United.

Though when he came on last night, he scored in the 82nd minute to wrap up the points for Kilmarnock - and all but relegate Dundee United.

It was the crowning moment on his impressive injury comeback - which has limited the striker to only 15 appearances all season - and only two in 2023.

The win also puts Kilmarnock in an enviable position heading into the last game of the season.

They face Ross County at Rugby Park knowing a win or a draw will consign their opponents to the relegation play-off. However, a loss will see Killie play-off against Partick Thistle or Ayr United for a place in next seasons Premiership.

The match will take place on Sunday, May 28, kicking off at 3pm.
