Steve Clarke: Killie never know when they're beaten

in #KillieStories September 30, 2018

Steve Clarke was pleased with his Kilmarnock side’s battling powers after coming from behind to beat Motherwell 3-1.

Goals from Chris Burke, Greg Stewart and Eamonnn Brophy proved to be enough to secure three points for the hosts.

"I'd rather not go behind," Clarke said.

"We've shown a good resilience ever since I've been at the club. We actually speak a lot about going behind. It's part of football and you have to learn to deal with adversity.

"If you go behind and then suddenly think that you can't win the game then what's the point in playing?"

Having battled back from one goal to defeat champions Celtic, Killie were forced to do the same again after Curtis Main has scored the opener before missing a penalty.

"It was always going to be difficult going behind against Motherwell," Clarke continued. "They get a lot of bodies behind the ball and make it difficult for you.

"But thankfully we managed to find a way back into the game and then controlled it in the second half.

"We've got a good group of players here. They've got great belief and they never know when they're beaten. We've added a few new boys to the group this year and they seem to have the same mentality so that's a real positive."
