Kilmarnock boss Alex Dyer believes that his side have passed up the opportunity to pick up three points away to Hamilton.

Killie couldn’t find a way past Luke Southwood in the opposite net as Brian Rice’s ten men came out on top. Mickel Miller had been sent off but Marios Ogkmpoe stepped up to score a decisive penalty in the dying embers.

It moved Hamilton out the relegation places and Killie have suffered a dent in their quest for top six football. They sit four points off sixth place Hibs with three games to go until the split – but that deficit should be one according to Dyer.

“If you’re not clinical in front of goal you get punished,” the Kilmarnock manager said. “I’m bitterly disappointed that we haven’t come away with something. If you take any positives, we are creating chances.

“But I can’t take much from this because it’s unprofessional. They go down to ten men and we go a bit gun-ho. We switch off at key moments so I’m bitterly disappointed we don’t win the game.

“It was there in our grasp to win the game and it’s easy to say it would be nice to take a point. The three points were there to be taken and they go and score with minutes to go.

“I’m not going to say we should’ve got a point out a game we should have won.”
