Kilmarnock v Partick Thistle – 27th September 2014

After a poor result at RugbyPark, spoke to an understandably disappointed Alan.

“I think the game maybe swung on the double save in the first half, we made some good chances in the first half but didn’t take them. They were more clinical than us and that showed in the score line.

“We’ve defended crosses quite well this season so I was disappointed with the way we defended for the goals. But, at the end of the day, a game turns on chances and we’ve had a couple of good chances in the first half that we haven’t taken. We have to start making our chances count when we’re on top.”

Eremenko took many of the post math plaudits and Alan could see his team gave him too much room.

“Particularly in the second half I think we gave him too much space but I was more disappointed with the reaction from our lads. After the break we didn’t really hurt them at all. I thought a few of them felt sorry for themselves today. I know we had a long night on Tuesday but that is no excuse. We made it too easy for Kilmarnock today.”

When asked about the Kilmarnock pitch Archie had no complaints.

“It maybe takes a bit more out of the legs but it had no impact on the result today. I said before the game that we wouldn’t be using that as an excuse so I won’t now and I won’t let the players either.”

Both Dan Seaborne and Kallum Higginbotham had to come off due to injury but the seriousness of the issue, particularly for the latter remains unclear.

“Dan has obviously got a cut above his eye and it was just too deep for him to play on with – he could hardly see out of it. Kallum has done something to his knee but we aren’t sure how serious it is yet so we’ll just have to wait and see.”
