Ross County squandered a winning position to suffer a 3-1 Premiership defeat against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.
The Staggies had taken the lead through Iain Vigurs midway through the first half, however a quickfire double from Eamonn Brophy turned the game on its head shortly after the interval.
A late Nicke Kabamba header consigned the Staggies to defeat, meaning they are now without a win in their last eight matches in all competitions.
County made three changes from the side which went down 2-0 against Rangers in midweek, with Sean Kelly, Billy Mckay and Blair Spittal dropping out. Richard Foster and Lee Erwin were drafted in, along with Oli Shaw who made his first start since making the January move from Hibernian.
Killie were the first to threaten after just 90 seconds, with Kabamba nodding over an early Chris Burke free kick.
The Staggies survived a scare moments later when Eamonn Brophy’s powerful low strike was saved by Nathan Baxter before being hacked clear by Foster, with Killie claiming Marcus Fraser pulled down Rory McKenzie in his pursuit of the rebound.
McKenzie saw a near post flick drift wide, with the Staggies’ first attempt arriving on 20 minutes when Erwin saw an effort from the edge of the box deflected into the hands of Laurentiu Branescu.
The Staggies made a superb breakthrough on 26 minutes. The ball broke for Josh Mullin on the right flank following a misunderstanding between Branescu and defender Niko Hamalainen, with his cross cleared only as far as Vigurs on the edge of the box, allowing the midfielder to stroke the ball into the corner from 20 yards.
Killie mounted pressure in search of an equaliser, but County stood up well to their threat, with Brophy coming closest on the verge of half-time, flashing an effort just past the post from the edge of the box.
Brophy was not to be denied on 53 minutes, with the Scotland international teed up by Alan Power to rifle a low drive past Baxter, who was unable to keep the ball out despite getting a hand on the effort.
The turnaround was completed only four minutes later when referee Willie Collum pointed to the spot, after Burke had been felled by Coll Donaldson, with Brophy stepping up to coolly slot the penalty past Baxter.
The Dingwall men pushed for an equaliser, with Mullin seeing an effort held by Branescu, before Shaw struck over the bar from the edge of the area.
Killie could have added further damage, with Baxter coming to County’s rescue with an outstanding fingertip save to deny Dario Del Fabro’s header from a corner, while Stephen O’Donnell was narrowly off target with a thundering strike after cutting in from the right.
The home side added a deserved third goal with eight minutes remaining, as Kabamba rose highest to nod Burke’s free-kick past Baxter to end a run of seven straight league defeats.
