Match Recap

With Eamonn Brophy, Liam Millar and Chris Burke back in the side, Kilmarnock had plenty of forward threat on the park, but their problem was working the ball anywhere near the home penalty box.

Goalkeeper Joe Lewis was tested by a long-range Alan Power shot and got his nose painfully in the way of a close-range Dicker header when the stand-in centre-half ought to have reduced the arrears from a Burke free-kick.

However, having only scored 10 goals in their previous 11 Premiership games, it was always going to be a tall order for Alessio's side to recover - especially so considering they had to draft three academy players on to the bench. Dons first half scorers were Main (10' minutes), Cosgrove (27' minutes), and McKenna (81' minutes) near the end.

Comments

Angelo Alessio:  "We knew it was going to be a very difficult game as we came here without several players in the centre-back position. We just have to forget this game. We have built our season on the defensive line, but we were without four centre-backs and we tried Dicker and Wilson, but they are out of position."
