Kyle Lafferty says momentum could be key for Kilmarnock as the former Norwich City star makes a brilliant gesture following his hat-trick moment.
The striker has been in red-hot form since joining Killie and netted three goals in last weekend’s 4-0 Scottish Cup win over Stenhousemuir. He made a brilliant gesture too following the game, donating his hat-trick ball to a Stenhousemuir player recuperating from injury.
Stenny goalkeeping coach David Binnie took to social media to reveal the former Norwich City man’s kind gesture: “Kyle Lafferty made a fantastic gesture in having the ball signed by the full Kilmarnock and returned for one of our players who is undergoing some treatment. Top class from the big fella.”
Lafferty meanwhile says Kilmarnock must build on their momentum after scoring eight goals in two games heading into five massive Scottish Premiership survival matches (Killie TV): “It’s a great feeling to score goals and help the team along.
“But no matter how many goals I score, it will count for nothing if we end up relegated at the end of the season, which I don’t think we will. I think we’ve got some momentum and all the lads are gelling together and realizing we’re in a relegation battle and we have to come together to keep this club in the top league.
“We knew we had to put in a professional performance and I think we did that from the first moment. To get two wins in a row was important and it sets us up for a massive game next week.”
