Match Report

Sandy Armour @ Tullouch Caledonian Stadium

Following our welcome win at Perth the previous week we were on the road again to Inverness at the weekend. The drive up the A9 always brings a "what a beautiful country we live in" quote from Howard legend Tivvy....and he's not wrong. Only around 120 Killie fans made the long trip, a far cry from the 3500 fans we took to Ibrox for our famous 2-1 win back in 1994.

Unsurprisingly the team was unchanged and from the early minutes it was clear that we carried a bit of confidence from the win against St Johnstone. We got away to the perfect start with Coulibaly slotting home a spot kick after he had been blatantly fouled in the box. We always looked comfortable and McDonald was largely untroubled at the other end.

The second half was much like the first with Killie looking more likely to increase their lead rather than conceding. They always say one goal is never enough however and that proved to be the case as ICT bagged an undeserved equaliser in the closing minutes. Killie will rue the two efforts that hit the post but I suppose it's encouraging that we are disappointed with just a point as it's not been a lucky ground in recent seasons.

Once again Jones caught the eye wide on the left and Hendrie looks like he may just have solved our right back problem. One interesting statistic was that the hosts didn't manage one corner in the 90 minutes, a sure sign that Killie were the dominant force.

We left the ground thinking it was two points dropped however 4 points from 6 is a fine return though I just hope we can replicate the form at home. Hearts will provide a stern test on Wednesday and they always provide a physical challenge but I have a sneaky feeling we may just keep our unbeaten run going!

 

Comments

Lee Clark: "It's frustrating to lose the goal near the end after being in control of the game for large periods and being dominant. We started really well and deservedly took the lead and looked impressive going forward and making chances. We've hit the woodwork twice and had other numerous chances. We were in control of the game really and they weren't hurting us; but we knew they had a threat and would throw the proverbial kitchen sink at us at the end and we're disappointed that we could have done better from the long throw."
