Kilmarnock narrowly beat Motherwell to go above the Steelmen into sixth place in the Scottish Premiership.

With the sides level on points and goal difference before kick-off, their latest meeting was important in the continuing pursuit of a top-six finish.

Comments

Steve Clarke:  "First half was pretty even. We maybe just shaded, got the goal. Second half, Motherwell were a little bit more dominant. We looked a little bit jaded last 20 minutes.

"You have to say the character of the players at the moment is unbelievable. Dug in, got the result. It's nice to take three points back to Ayrshire.

"I thought the back three, the three central defenders were excellent, dealt with a lot. Jamie [MacDonald] was good, his handling was good - had to be because there were a lot of balls flying into our box.

"When they had to, the players put their body on the line, they blocked the ball, they got it away.

"It was a good strike [by Stephen O'Donnell]. I thought his positioning in the first half was good. He picked up a lot of ball in there. He drove forward with that one and it was a great finish right in the corner.

"We've taken another big step away from the bottom. We'll stay focused."
