Kilmarnock defender Lee Hodson has pleaded with the Ayrshire side’s fans to stick by Tommy Wright’s misfiring side as they look to turn their recent poor form around and reignite their Championship title challenge.

Killie have lost four of their last five games to lose ground at the top of the Championship table and Hodson can understand why the Rugby Park fans are frustrated just now.

The Northern Irish defender insists that the players will keep putting the hard work in to turn results around and admits the players share the fans’ frustrations over their poor results recently.

“Obviously the fans are frustrated, they want to come and watch their team win like any fan does,” Hodson said [Kilmarnock Standard].

“We are just as frustrated with not winning games, but the fans have been great. They have pulled us through a number of games, they have backed us all over the country.

“Fans will be frustrated, but honestly we want to win as much as they do. Hopefully we can get ourselves going with a win this weekend which would be the best start to the festive period.

“I’m sure the fans would be delighted if we got the win on Saturday and it started a run of victories.

“It’s hard for fans to see their team lose, but all we can ask is keep sticking by us and we will work as hard as we can to turn these results round.

“We still have more than half the season to do that, we know what we need to do – so we have to make sure we do everything right to make it happen.”
