Just saw the highlights , some header from Jordan white off the frame of the goal , with that and gardynes shot that went just wide we appear unlucky not to have taken all 3 points

And therein lies the rub with highlights- they don't always provide the truest picture of the game

A draw was probably the right result. Both Killie goals were incredibly cheaply given away- we had multiple chances to deal with the danger for the first, and a dreadful tackle from Tillson in a nothing area of the pitch resulted in the concession of a FK which we failed to deal with (and Laidlaw should have done much better with Pinnock's shot)
Killie were content to sit relatively deep for much of the game, however they did look a genuine threat when they did venture forward (and Kiltie could and arguably should have won them the game coming off the bench)
We had a brief period of dominance at the start of the 2nd half, where Draper and Midge had gilt-edged chances to score (Draper made a comically bad mess of an extremely presentable chance gifted to him, proceeding to trod on the ball and fall over when the ball fell to him 12 yards out) but aside from that we never really looked like scoring and tailed off quite badly in the last 20
Collum had a poor game for both sides without making any decisions that would have seriously impacted the game- the White chance you mention was a blatant foul, he was climbing all over the defender. The FK Vigurs struck which led to the 2nd was also an extremely debatable call, which Collum appeared to give purely on the basis of McKay (who had another good game, this time as an inside right) shouting for it. Lafferty did catch Vigurs with a stray arm but yellow was the correct call there- Collum was perfectly placed to see it. It was one of the few things he actually got right today
Killie finished by far the stronger side without creating too many clear chances (although Laidlaw was extremely fortunate with a Burke effort near the end that his parry wasn't snapped up by a Killie player)- we conceded an awful lot of territory in the last 20. Surprised we didn't see Hylton earlier tbh, but then again Hughes has demonstrated time and time again that game management isn't a strength of his. A point on the board away from home in this league is never a bad result, though

The Killie commentators on Killie Tv were relieved they got a point,we deserved our point,if our finishing had been better it should have been three points,Draper,Gardyne twice,not half chances,sitters.
Tildsons tackle was only a booking,as if you watch it he got a nudge and then slipped,could have seen him walk though,it was a nervous moment.
Disagree with Laffertys stray arm,it was stray initially,but he then deliberately threw it into Vigurs face,definitely an action knowing a player was there.
Main thing here was don’t lose,,and after the Inverness game,we got more than I expected.
Home to St Mirren next,let’s hope we keep 11 players on the park this time!

A decent point. Spurned a few good chances in the 2nd half, McKay played well once again. Everyone other than Naismith in that defence still gives me the heebie-jeebies though!
Not a foul,studs into his leg above the knee!

Wasn’t even deemed worth a mention on Sportscene,wow. Poor highlights show, didn’t show Drapers sitter either.

Tattie, the full match was in BBC Alba last night, not sure if it’s on catch up or some other form.
In fairness to Draper, and he was not alone yesterday, the ball took some diversions off that five a side surface.
Thought Draper did well enough yesterday, as did Vigurs, they can’t be perfect every week.
Vigurs got the corner spot on for the goal, his free kick from the edge of the box, at least that brought a save from the keeper.
Shots on goal are a rare breed lately, the team need to be bolder at 20 to 30 yards out, see a chance take a shot, just make sure it’s on target.

Was not a good game for the stress levels!

Both goals we conceded sum us up and have for years, repeatedly giving away goals from lapses in concentration/losing individual battles/not closing down. However, we were lucky as Kilmarnock's center halves were just as inept as ours- really not sure what they were doing for our first.

Had the fear Lafferty was going to run riot but we kept him pretty quiet and the call to book him for the Vigurs incident was probably correct as it had a lot less intent than the one in Dingwall.

I still do not understand why we let Kelly near dead balls, his deivery is consistently atrocious.

6 days left to watch the full match.
Ok, it’s in Gaelic, but the picture is ok.
