Connor Johnson says it’s been ‘tough’ at Kilmarnock so far following the Wolves loanee’s second appearance in Killie colours.

He was solid at the back against Ross County but that couldn’t prevent a County win. The Staggies eventually ran out 1-0 winner courtesy of a late strike from former forward Lee Erwin.

It’s a killer blow for Angelo Alessio’s side. The result leaves them in the top six but now Hibs are a point off them in sixth with County in seventh following closely behind them.

Whilst not a favorable outcome, Killie’s Wolves loanee did his first-team ambitions no harm. He looked solid in the air whilst he competed well on the ground with three decent County strikers.


Overall though, Johnson says he’s found the standard of Scottish football challenging since moving from Molineux.

Speaking after the 1-0 loss, he said: “I’m still getting used to this level and I’m finding Scottish football tough. Even the first two weeks of training I found it hard to get into the mix but it’s a good league.

“It’s very different to the Under-23s league back home but I played at Walsall last year and that’s League One. This is similar in a way but there are still differences, I can’t quite put my finger on it.”
