Stephen Hendrie has been left to lament his Kilmarnock side’s defeat to former employers Hamilton.
Killie lost out 1-0 to Accies at the weekend. Despite their hosts playing with ten men for a period of the second half, Alex Dyer’s team weren’t able to make the most of this advantage, with Marios Ogkmpoe securing an Accies win from the penalty spot.
It’s dented Kilmarnock’s top six push, with the club sat in eighth and four points off sixth place Hibs with three games until the split.
An Accies academy graduate, Hendrie knew how hard it was going to be in South Lanarkshire – but that doesn’t make defeat any less painful.
“It’s disappointing, for large spells of the game we dominated,” said Hendrie. “We just couldn’t put the ball in the back of the net. They go down to ten men and we think we’re going to push on.
“First half we started well, set up a few chances. Second half we started sloppy but came back into it. Top six is our ambition but we need to focus game by game.
“When you come to Hamilton you need to roll your sleeves up, everybody knows that. It’s just frustrating because we could not seem to break them down but that’s football for you.”
