Good start is key against Ross County, says Killie boss

Kilmarnock manager Lee McCulloch has highlighted the importance of a strong start against Ross County.

Goals from Aberdeen's Stevie May and Dundee's Faissal El Bakhtaoui have left Killie playing catch up in their last two Premiership matches and McCulloch wants to avoid a repeat.

Speaking ahead of the County clash, he said: "We’ve spoken all week about the importance of a good start to the match.

"Last week I thought we were by far the better team. We missed some chances and we’ve gifted a goal to them.

"You have to take the positives from it, on another day we could have won 4-0 last week. At the time, I didn’t say that but having watched the game back there were about three or four times in different spells we showed signs that we’re getting there."

The Scottish Premiership takes a short break before resuming on October 14 when Killie make the trip to Glasgow to take on Partick Thistle.

And McCulloch says everyone is determined to secure a first league win heading into the pause in action. 

He added: "During the international break you have a free weekend and everybody will analyse things and if you see your name at the bottom of the table then there’s a little bit more time to dwell on it.

"It’s all about tomorrow and taking care of the important things in the match and in our mind."
