What a ninety minutes.
A dream start. Weren’t playing well but found a peach of a goal from Brophy.
We went into our shell from there and let Dundee dominate. We just couldn’t cope with their system and struggled to win battles. I didn’t think it was a penalty but the goal was coming.
Second half I thought we improved straight away. Poor marking to give away the second. Dickers sending off was pure frustration. Couldn’t argue it was a second yellow and I’d hope our senior pros could control themselves better but his reaction was understandable to a degree. We were all feeling it at that point.
From then on it was one of the most remarkable performances I’ve ever seen from a Killie team. Every single player stepped it up a level and won every battle on the park.
Two cracking goals. Boyds a fantastic team move and fine finish. Where the hell did big Shug find that run and finish. Take a bow young man.
SOD was outstanding all game. Great in attack and defence.
Wilson was superb when he came on really stood up to be counted. Erwin finally showed up in a Killie jersey. Great link up play and fantastic work rate. Brilliant in the equaliser.
Tshibola I wasn’t impressed with until Dicker went off. At that point the big man decided to show up and was excellent.
I'd like to give special praise to two players I’ve been critical of in the past. Jamie MacDonald made some outstanding saves. I’ve criticised him at crosses but we needed safe hands today and he made a couple of important claims to calm things down. His save at 3-2 was class. Rory McKenzie in that last half hour covered every blade of grass, unlucky not to equalise before we did and he showed fantastic commitment in the tackle.
Ref was an utter joke. Barely gave us a call all night. A shambolic display and he completely lost control of the game. It got to the point it felt like it was 10vs12.
A phenomenal night to be a Killie fan.
Steve Clarke: "Tonight I’m thrilled with the fact the players showed great character and courage to come back and get a result from a really difficult situation.
"It keeps the run going but it is not important. The run will end someday, it could have ended tonight. The overall picture in the way the team is evolving and working you can tell they feel good about themselves. They keep working to pick up points and that’s all I can ask of them. It was always going to be difficult with ten men but we are never dead and buried with this group of players. It was a strange game tonight. We didn’t start very well even though we went 1-0 up, I thought Dundee were much better in the first 30 minutes. We shuffled it about a bit in the second half, actually conceded the 1-2 when we were probably the better team again and lost Gary Dicker. You saw the rest. I put young Iain Wilson on for his first appearance for a long time and he helped to change the game for us. Lee Erwin came on up front and showed everybody what he’s shown me in training for the past six weeks. It was nice to see. When I came to the club everybody told me he [Wilson] was a really good player and a big prospect and I think you got a glimpse of that tonight."
