Match Recap

Two temporary floodlight failures could not prevent Kilmarnock moving to within a point of the Scottish Premiership summit with an easy win over Hibernian.

Eamonn Brophy slid Steve Clarke's side in front early on, then converted a penalty following Darren McGregor's foul on Jordan Jones.

The second half was interrupted twice when the power went out.

But after play resumed for a second time, Greg Stewart dinked the ball over Adam Bogdan for Kilmarnock's third.

Kilmarnock, who host Livingston on Wednesday, stretch their unbeaten run to three and are second - a point off leaders Celtic, who have two games in hand.

Comments

Steve Clarke: "I thought we were good, first half especially. Neil Lennon came with a little bit of a different side but we got the early goal and that was crucial.

"Second half, we invited them on a little bit. If we'd have been a little bit more clinical we could've had a bigger scoreline." 

 "Hopefully the performance will get more of the headlines than the lights because I thought we were terrific today, from start to finish.

"I thought the defenders were excellent and that's three clean sheets in a row. That's a big part as well as the goal scorers coming back.  

"I think there would have been a problem if the lights had gone off for a third time.

"When they go off you have to let the system cool and then trip them back in. I don’t think the referee would have let them on again so the last 25 minutes were a little more nervous than usual.

"I think the stoppages actually disrupted us a little bit more than Hibs because they are chasing the game and so have nothing to lose.

"We couldn't find a proper rhythm in the second half that we had in the first half so it was nice to get the third goal. I'm not going to grumble with 3-0 win against a good Hibs team."
