Match Recap

Second-half goals from Liam Millar and Mohamed El Makrini (his first for the club) earned Kilmarnock a 2-0 Ladbrokes Premiership win which turned up the heat on Hibernian boss Paul Heckingbottom.

Angelo Alessio's name rang round Rugby Park as his Kilmarnock side made it four games unbeaten, but the only chants from the visiting fans were for Heckingbottom to go as the visitors' miserable run continued.

Alessio seems to have turned around Kilie's fortunes following their embarrassing exit to Welsh part-time outfit Connah's Quay Nomads in the Europa League.

Killie have won three of their last four games and Alessio, who replaced Steve Clarke in the summer, is winning over the supporters as he looks to match the top-six finishes of the last two campaigns.


Angelo Alessio:  “I’m very happy because we got a good win and we played good football in the second half and we deserved the win. I appreciate the pass from Stephen – it was a very good, long pass and Millar finished it very well.  We played very well in the second half. It was good to see El Makrini score – in the first four matches we only scored two goals and they were from Stephen O’Donnell All the players are improving and we are now compact and solid as a team and we’re taking opportunities to score. It was important to have another clean sheet not only for the defenders but we have Dicker, Power, El Makrini as well as McKenzie and Millar helping with the defensive line. They’ve worked very well and I’m happy with this.”
