Kilmarnock manager Alex Dyer was left delighted with his side’s performance over Ross County at the weekend.
Killie were reduced to 10 men early on as Stuart Findlay was sent for a very early bath. But goals from Eamonn Brophy, Nicke Kabamba and Chris Burke sealed a comfortable 3-1 win regardless against the Staggies.
Dyer was thrilled with his men at full-time: “It was an excellent win after going down to 10 men, the lads really showed what they’re about. There’s a great team spirit and the boys worked really hard for each other.
“We reacted well to the dismissal. Gary Dicker slotted into defence before I changed it at half-time and moved Gary back into midfield. It was harsh on Brophy who was playing well and scored his goal.
“I was quite calm when we lost Stuart. We managed it against Hamilton and got a good result and it was the same sort of game.
“We’ve worked really hard all week so it’s a nice day for the players and staff. It’s not always that we’ll go down to 10 men but at least we know we can handle it.”
Dyer has also confirmed that Kilmarnock will appeal the decision to send Findlay off: “He definitely touched the ball twice.
“I’ve looked back at it two or three times and there is contact on the ball. I will appeal it and hope for the best.”
