Kilmarnock boss Tommy Wright has stated that from now on he is going to play two attackers when possible, as he looks for a formation that will keep his team in the Premiership.

The Rugby Park side is on a poor run at the moment, they have lost their eight games in the Premiership, and have scored only two goals in that time.

In order to sort that problem and keep Kilmarnock in the league, Wright is planning to go on the offensive.

“Got it in my head”

“I’ve got it in my head what I want to do in terms of formation that I want to play” he said.

“I do think that in the main we should have two strikers on the pitch mainly, or at least a real attacking option sitting off the striker.

“There are a lot of good players there, but somehow they’ve managed to throw points away by not doing the basics well often enough” Wright stated.

Striker could make first start

One player who will likely be a part of the new formation is Kyle Lafferty. He made his first appearance for the team as a sub in last week’s loss to Aberdeen.

It would not be a surprise to see him make his first start against Dundee United on Saturday. Wright will want his side to get a positive result in that game to get some confidence ahead of what looks to be a huge game against Ross County next Saturday.

A win ahead of the trip to Dingwall would no doubt give the side belief that they can stay up this season.
