Killie win was reward for good displays, says Clarke

Steve Clarke believes Kilmarnock's late victory over Hearts was just reward for the team's good performances in recent weeks.

Killie have claimed five points from a possible 12, securing draws from away matches against Rangers and Celtic prior to the 2-1 win at Murrayfield.

A 3-0 home defeat to Hibs failed to tell the story of the match, with the men from Ayrshire striking the woodwork on several occasions. 

Goals from Kris Boyd and Adam Frizzell saw Killie claim their first win under Clarke's watch and he felt the three points were more than merited. 

He said: "We proved that (character) at Ibrox and then at Celtic Park and showed it today. We should have won a little bit more comfortably but we'll take the win.

"I didn't have pre-conceived ideas. If you watched our performances since I came into the club than they have all been good.

"We haven't really had a bad performance and that result was reward for the previous three games without a win."
