Kilmarnock defender Zech Medley wasn’t happy with how Killie conceded at the weekend – but the Arsenal loanee was thrilled to make up for that with his first senior goal.

Adrian Sporle put Dundee United ahead but the Arsenal talent put his first goal as a professional beyond Benjamin Siegrist to seal a 1-1 draw. It ended a run of eight-straight defeats for Tommy Wright’s side, although they still sit in the Premiership’s relegation play-off spot.

Medley was happy to notch his goal: “It was great to get a point on the board and get the goal. I know there’s been a bit of a drought recently and it was good to put an end to that and now we want to push on next week. I knew I was going to go to the back post, Nicke got the flick on and I’ve managed to keep calm and put it in the bottom corner.”

Arsenal sent Medley on loan to Kilmarnock, despite the Rugby Park club hunting a new manager at the time after the departure of Alex Dyer. They have found one in Wright and Medley is looking to become a regular.

How Dundee United scored at the weekend disappointed the Gunners talent but he’s pleased to bounce back: “The start of the game was a bit of a shame as I felt we could have dealt with the goal a bit better. But we had to show some resilience and thankfully I got the goal which is good.”
