Stew joy as Rabs take it to the Max; JUNIORS.
STEWART MAXWELL insists his Rabs are proof money doesn't buy success after banking a second top-flight win in a row.
Rob Roy twice fell behind to Kilwinning before Jordan Currie-McLean's winner with 15 minutes left.
Maxi, now in his sixth year in charge, said: "It's been a tough start and hopefully we can gain a bit of confidence from the last couple of wins and kick on.
"We have a young team and one of the lowest budgets in the West Premiership but season after season we hold our own in the top league."
The Buffs raced into an early lead after Mark Curragh robbed Chris Lang then coolly slotted home.
Within minutes Rabs were level when Mick Daly powered in a header from Lee Gallagher's free-kick.
Curragh got his second before Joe Slattery levelled with a well-controlled shot that went in off the post just before the break.
And Rabs' winner arrived when Currie-McLean latched on to Gary Carroll's through ball and drilled his shot under Ross Lundie.
Buffs boss Chris Strain said: "Basic defending has killed us."
