Steve Clarke unhappy as Killie fail to get out the traps

in #KillieStories November 26, 2017

Steve Clarke made his displeasure clear with Kilmarnock's first-half display in the 3-1 loss to Aberdeen.

A first-minute strike from Kenny McLean and an own goal after 10 minutes left the home side with too much to do at Rugby Park.

Jordan Jones pulled a goal back for Killie before seeing red late in the match as Stevie May sealed victory for the visitors.

Reflecting on the match, the Killie boss said: "It was a really bad start and it was game over after 10 minutes.

"We didn’t get out of the traps, you can’t give good teams two goal starts.

"I will analyse the first half performance more than the second half."

Killie start their hectic December schedule against St Johnstone in Perth, the first of seven matches over the festive period.

Clarke added: "The more concerning thing is we only have 12 points and we’re still trying to catch up from a slow start to the season.

"We will always have difficult games and this was one. Next week away to St Johnstone will be a difficult game but we have to start winning matches".
