Match Recap

Killie moved up to third in the Scottish Premiership after Gary Dicker's second goal in two games was enough to beat St Mirren at Rugby Park.

Dicker had scored his first strike in 94 games in the win over Livingston, and his second-half header was enough to settle a tight contest Ayrshire.

It means Killie have lost just once (at Parkhead) in their last eight games.

However, the home side had Scotland defender Stuart Findlay stretchered off in the first half with a leg injury.


Angelo Alessio: “We are very happy, with both result and performances. We went through bad periods but showed enough quality to win the game, I watched a lot of their games and they play well. They attack on the counter very quickly and have good attackers – so to get a result against them is very pleasing.  We still have some issues in attack and creating chances: and whilst it wasn’t great in terms of scoring, the result was more important. We are building upon it all the time, we now focus on the next game and improvement.  Whenever Alex plays, he always does well. It’s difficult for him to start because of the defenders we have but he’s the ultimate professional and a good person.  Findlay’s hamstring was sore, same with Dario. We shall assess their situation on Monday, if it’s bad, it is a shame, But, we have enough depth in our squad to deal with it".

Gary Dicker: “St. Mirren tried to sit in but we didn’t give away too many chances. Yeah, we only got one but you’re not going to dominate for 90 minutes against anyone no matter who you’re playing, We’ve got great characters here. Obviously we had a horrible start which we didn’t’ want but we know what’s in that dressing room. Boys that have been here the last two years who didn’t panic and I know everyone else panicked – but we know what we’re doing.

On Playing Well Away Next: “They’re flying at the moment; they’ve had some good results and they’ve picked up over the last six seven months and really turned the corner,” They’ve started to play a different style of football they probably haven’t played. It will be a tough game and we won’t be going in there thinking it will be easy. I think Steve Clarke was playing me in the wrong position to be honest with you. Killing me! I’m happy to score but I’m one of those players doesn’t bother me who scores or where they come from. That’s the most important thing picking up the three points because that makes a massive difference in this league.”
