New Zealand international forward Alex Greive has broken a six-month goalscoring drought in the Scottish Premiership with a goal for St Mirren against Hibernian.
Greive, whose season has been disrupted by injury, was one of three players recalled to the starting line-up, and he responded with his fourth goal of the season.
Trailing 2-0 after an hour, Greive pulled back a goal for St Mirren.
Careful to stay onside, Greive latched onto a headed flick-on from forward Curtis Main to bear down on the Hibs ‘keeper and slot it into the net.
Greive was substituted in the 82nd minute, and St Mirren lost the match 2-1 to stay sixth on the table.
After the game, Greive told Renfrewshire Live Sport he had dedicated the goal to his late father, Richard, who died in Auckland in December.
“Yes, that was for my dad. It was a tough moment halfway through the year (season) losing him. That one is for him.”
Greive’s last Premiership goal was scored against Dundee United on October 23.
