Nicke Kabamba says he’s connecting well with Kilmarnock frontman Eamonn Brophy as the strike duo begin to make a Rugby Park connection.

Kabamba netted his third goal in three Killie games as Alex Dyer’s men came away with a 3-1 win over Ross County. Brophy got the other two as a first win since November was secured.

The striker arrived from Hartlepool in January and has managed to hit the ground running. He says that his initial linkup with ‘The Wolf’ has been great and that their relationship is blossoming.

“It’s always good to contribute so I’m over the moon,” said Kabamba. “Me and Brophy are quite similar because we can hold up the ball. We’ve got a good relationship off the park.


“It’s helped our relationship on the pitch and that’s worked. I think we have a good connection. We do shooting practice and if you lose you get the coffees in, things like that.

“I think it’s healthy competition that will get the best out of both of us. There’s a few things I’ve still got to learn as a striker. I think it’s a case of taking every games as it comes.

“We’re looking forward to the next game and trying to build on it. The mood in the changing room is to be looking up.”
