Saints 1-0 Derby County
Report of match 2nd September 2007
Reporter Stuart Gillespie
Shuggy Murray's big night ended in a Saints victory thanks to a second half goal from Billy Mehmet. Around 1,200 turned out to honour the club captain, who was subbed after an hour.A decent result considering the dross against Celtic, although it should be remembered Derby lost 6-0 at Anfield on Saturday and were without players due to the international break.
Saints were without one themselves - goalkeeper Chris Smith - meaning Mark Howard made his Saints debut. Also playing was a trialist, believed to be former Clyde and Dundee United midfielder Karim Kerkar. It's anyone's guess what will develop with him, if anything.
