St Mirren go to top of Premiership after late goal against Livingston SNS Group

St Mirren have moved to the top of the Premiership after a late equaliser secured a draw at Livingston.

Stephen Robinson’s side go a point ahead of Celtic at the top of the table with a 1-1 draw in West Lothian that puts them on eight points with two wins and two draws from their opening four games..

The 1-1 in West Lothian means the Paisley side remain unbeaten after a dramatic equaliser from Stav Nahmani deep into injury time.

St Mirren had the first real chance of the game when Conor McMeniman’s cross found Baccus in the box but the Australian international’s header was wide of the post.

The game was then stopped as Livi’s Andrew Shinnie suffered a bad injury after falling awkwardly and was stretchered off after receiving treatment on the pitch.

Joel Nouble and MIkey Devlin both had chances for the home side in an evenly matched first 45.

Greg Kiltie then had a chance to opening the scoring just before half-time but his effort was well saved by Shamal George.

Bruce Anderson thought he had put the home side in front with 14 minutes remaining, but the goal was ruled out for offside after a VAR check.

Robinson made a triple change as St Mirren chased the winner with less than ten minutes remaining as Bolton, Jamieson and Nahmani replaced Baccus, McMenamin and Olusanya.

Just as it looked as if the game would finish goalless Luiyi De Lucas scored with a minute left to play in what looked like a dramatic winner.

But six minutes into injury-time Nahmani scored the vital goal that keeps St Mirren unbeaten and puts them top of the league.
