Match Recap

Kris Boyd scored an 86 min equaliser as Kilmarnock came from two down to draw with Ross County.

Chris Eagles set up Christopher Routis' volley and Jason Naismith's header as County took control.

Eamonn Brophy's long-range strike gave the visitors hope.

Boyd went down in the County box but the hosts were awarded a free-kick before the striker's deflected header levelled matters moments later.

The result maintains a three-point gap between eighth-placed Killie and County two places below..

Comments

Steve Clarke:    "Second half, we were by far the better team, Disappointed with the first half.

"We conceded two terrible goals from set plays and it made it a more difficult night than maybe it should've been.

"Obviously, losing the two defenders as well disrupted us and we lost concentration a little round about that time, which maybe influenced the fact that we didn't defend set plays because by and large this year we've defended set plays really well.

"Gordon had felt something in the warm-up. Hopefully, it's not too serious but he had to come off. Stuart Findlay fell over, gave himself a knock. To lose two defenders at that stage of the game was obviously disappointing and to lose two big defenders against a team that are good at set plays.

"You know if you get the ball in the box in and around Kris, you'll always have a chance of scoring and thankfully it turned out that he got the equaliser for us. He's been terrific for me.

"Young Eamonn's on a good vein of form, tired a little bit towards the end but you see with his quality, his strike, he can score left foot, right foot and when you've got goalscorers that are scoring you've always got a chance.

"We'll take the point. We're on a good little run."
