A disappointing day, when we could easily have drawn or even won the game, with just a break or two. It wasn't just about luck, of course, as Clarke has Killie playing a tight, clever game, and their record speaks for itself. But in the last few minutes of the first half, Daz hits the bar, then Bingham and Ferguson both force the keeper into great saves - just one of those three goes in, and we lead 1-0 at half time. Different game.
Good, timely substitutions brought us back into it after conceding a poor goal. Great free kick from Temps. But all for nothing when we conceded again.
I don't think confidence will be low. We have a good squad with a good work ethic, and we're capable of securing the few points we still need. That game was a shot to nothing, and the players knew it - it would have been great to take something, but we're still ahead of three other teams, who would all prefer to be in our shoes.
Some battles ahead, but we won't play another team as good as Killie were today. I still think we'll be OK.
