Alex Dyer was frustrated as his Kilmarnock side were unable to beat Aberdeen in Ayrshire again.

The Kilmarnock manager said it was very much, “two points dropped” as his team failed to make up ground on teams in the top six.

Dyer made for a frustrated figure over the course of the ninety minutes and he was clearly annoyed with the full-time result: “We were in control of the game, winning the game comfortably and we obviously let them back in just before half time.

“They started the second half well and once it went to 2-2, we were fine again. We played some good stuff on the night; we just didn’t kill them off when we should have done.


“I’m fussed about the fact that we didn’t win the game when we should’ve won the game, but those little things happen in football and that’s life, just get on with it.”

Dyer was critical of his players performance in the build-up to the two goals for Aberdeen. He said: “They’re old an enough and big enough. They should learn from the last game two weeks ago.

“Like I said we started well, and we played well during the ninety, it’s just that we couldn’t finish them off and we couldn’t stay in the game when we should have done.

“We let them back in at key moments. Whether its marking in the box, stopping crosses coming into our box, we know they’re a good side. We know they’re dangerous when balls come in the box so that’s down to us as a group to handle that next time.”

The Kilmarnock manager now faces a monumental task of trying to get the Ayrshire side into the top six but Dyer is taking it one game at a time: “It’s a point, a point better off than we were at the beginning of the day and we’ve got four good games now to go into and try pick up as many points as we can.”
