Kilmarnock manager Tommy Wright says his side can’t complain about a draw with Ross County – despite Arsenal loanee Zech Medley being fouled during one of the goals.
The Arsenal talent appeared to be pushed as County leveled up the scoring during Saturday’s 2-2 draw. Three goals were scored in the opening period of the match but Wright says Kilmarnock didn’t show how good they can be.
The Killie said “There’s definitely two hands on the back of Zech Medley’s back and there was a push in the goal. But there were a lot of bodies in there and it would have been difficult for the referee to see that. But overall we can’t have any complaints as we didn’t play as well as we could.
“We asked for a fast start, we got it, (but) conceded far too early and too cheaply for my liking and Ross County made it difficult for us. We didn’t get into any rhythm in the first half. Even though we went 2-1 up, we didn’t move the ball quickly enough. I think we were a bit one dimensional at times in the first half, so it’s never nice when you concede that quickly after taking the lead.
“But fair play to the players, they scrapped and got us ahead at half-time. We spoke at half-time to make sure we had a good start to the second half. And Ross County – even though in the equaliser it looks as though there is a push on Zech – they probably deserved to be level with us.
“It probably wasn’t until the last 20-25 minutes that we had any real control of the game, and in that space, we had two or three good opportunities but couldn’t get that third goal that would’ve given us a victory.”
