Match Recap

The Dons had been Killie's bogey team for some time now and they perhaps owe experienced referee Thomson some kudos for that almost six-year run coming to an end.

Football is littered with ironies and Pittodrie was the scene for two as Devlin took over from Killie's Dicker as the unfortunate victim of a dubious red card that came as some were still taking their seats.

Dicker's recent appeal failed and manager Clarke believes that was because the SFA had handed Willie Collum, who sent Dicker packing against Hearts, the Old Firm derby at Celtic Park.

Aberdeen will also surely appeal against Devlin's misfortune although the process appears to be as unpredictable as anything in Scottish Football. Once Thomson had decided it was foul a red card was always a possibility as Brophy had begun to race through on goal.

Killie still had to get the job done and they went about their business with purpose and poise. Brophy's goal was outstanding albeit Dons' captain Graeme Shinnie was apoplectic at the free-kick's award.

And Stewart added to the ironic nature of the afternoon as he outpaced the Dons defence on the counter attack and clipped cleverly over Lewis to bring an end to Killie's gruesome record against Aberdeen.

Comments

Steve Clarke: "We won the game quite comfortably. We could have had a few more goals. Eamonn Brophy did a great job for us up top. Even with 10 men, I thought Aberdeen were still a threat, they didn't stop trying, they kept putting the ball in the box.

"We can't be over excited just because we've won at Aberdeen. It's been a long time coming so Kilmarnock fans will enjoy that. Seven points from the first four games is less than I wanted, it's less than I thought we would get."
