Greg Kiltie was feeling the love for Dunfermline teammate Kevin Nisbet after the striker continued his hot streak of form at the weekend.

Nisbet netted a double alongside a strike from the Kilmarnock loanee to hand Stevie Crawford’s side a 3-1 win over Morton. It lifts them into third place in the Championship.

On such good form it’s hard to argue with the fact Nisbet is one of Scotland’s hottest strikers right now. He has 18 to his goal tally this term.

Kiltie admits it’s brilliant to play alongside someone in such good form and he hopes it continues to keep up at a relentless rate.

“At the start of the week we’d have taken seven points but to get nine is brilliant,” Kiltie said. “We’re up to third and that’s really good going. We can’t rest on what we’ve done and we need to push on now.

“Kevin is in ridiculous form with the amount of goals he’s scored but I want thanks off him for the assists! He’s in incredible form, his goalscoring form is a joke. It’s really nice playing off him.

“After our third goal I said to him ‘you’ve no idea how happy you’ve made me.’ When we’re defending like that and then you get a goal that kills the game off, it’s brilliant.

“As long as we keep winning it’s not about me scoring. I would happily pass it across the box for someone else to score. I’m not so sure Kevin would be!”
