Match Recapt

Kilmarnock had to do without striker Greg Stewart, who opted to instead join Aberdeen on loan from Birmingham for the second half of the season.

The hosts' manager Steve Clarke refused to comment too much on the Stewart situation, saying he's "only interested in players who want to play for this club".
Iain Wilson returned to the starting line-up and impressed standing in at right-back for the injured Stephen O'Donnell and Ross Millen.

Stuart Findlay's superb volley helped Kilmarnock beat League One Forfar Athletic and progress to the last 16 of the Scottish Cup.
The defender struck a sweet shot into the top right corner from 20 yards.
The hosts' extended their lead after the interval when two substitutes combined, Mikael Ndjoli setting up Chris Burke for a close-range finish.
But Forfar often impressed, matching the Scottish Premiership title contenders for large parts of the tie.

Comments

Steve Clarke: "Stuart Findlay scored a better one in training the other day, believe it or not, and we had a little laugh about it, so it was nice to see him stick it in the top corner. "I thought we were reasonably comfortable in the game. Forfar came and had a go and credit to them." 

Stuart Findlay: “As of now, this is my joint-highest tally of goals for a season,” he said with a smile. “Until last season, I hadn’t scored a senior one. I got three by the end of last season, so that’s three by the end of January.  We were having a laugh during the week because, not only do I not normally score in games, I don’t usually hit the target in training, either. My biggest job is at the other end of the park, but it’s good to add things to your game and it always helps the teams to get vital ones at vital times and chip in. Kris Boyd carried us on his back last season with his goals, but this season other boys have done well. Others have to chip in. Goals have to come from other areas.”
