Kilmarnock 1-1 Dundee: Gordon Greer gives Killie a point

in Match Reports September 23, 2017

Kilmarnock came from behind to secure a 1-1 draw at home to Dundee thanks to Gordon Greer.

The defender struck in the second half from a Kris Boyd knockdown to ensure the match finished level.

Dundee took the lead after just three minutes when the visitors capitalised on a slip from Greer. The defender recovered but while Jamie MacDonald saved the initial effort, Faissal El Bakhtaoui was on hand to tap home.

Killie refused to lie down and could have been level minutes later but Scott Bain saved well from Lee Erwin's effort.

The Ayrshire men finished the half stronger but just couldn't find the equaliser thanks to some last-ditch defending from Dundee.

Kris Boyd was introduced to the action just after the hour mark and he made an instant impact by finding Greer in the middle of the box and the 36-year-old left Bain with no chance.

At the other end, Jamie MacDonald was forced into a fine save to touch El Bakhtaoui's curling shot onto the crossbar. 

Both teams tried desperately to find a winning goal with the best chance falling to Killie in the final moments.

One final ball into the box presented Boyd with a chance to claim all three points but he was unable to hit the target.

Kilmarnock: MacDonald; O'Donnell, Greer, Findlay, Taylor; Frizzell (K.Boyd), Hawkshaw, Watters, Jones, McKenzie, Erwin.
