Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels believes luck deserted his side in the 4-2 defeat to St Mirren in Paisley.
Dieter van Tornhout gave Killie the lead but Danny Lennon’s men hit four goals of their own to earn their first league victory of 2012 with Dean Shiels netting a late goal for the visitors.
It is the second time the Buddies have beaten Killie on home soil after a 3-0 win back in September.
But Shiels felt his men were unfortunate, saying: "There are things in football that you can't legislate for and today every break went against us.
"I am sure that Danny (Lennon) would agree that the final score wasn't a true reflection of the game.
"The second goal is an own-goal as the ball hits Ben Gordon on the head and goes in, for the third I felt the referee got it wrong as there was a foul on Sissoko.
"St Mirren have been having a spell where everything has been going against them but they got the rub of the green today.
"I would say we were unfortunate losers. If you assess the game, we have done very well in the first half.
"I'm not going to look for excuses. I just want to give an account of how things went against us.
"I don't want to take anything away from St Mirren - they showed great spirit and worked hard to get their goals.
"The ball was breaking for St Mirren, though in saying that I have watched them a lot since January and things have being going against them a lot - they deserve their good luck and fair play to them."
