"We were competitive and we were a little bit disappointed to be down at half time because I don’t think we deserved to be. We started the game really well, we fell out of it a little bit but we had decent control of the game," Clarke said on the club's official website.

"Two mistakes from the ball into the box cost us the goal and we reacted well. I spoke to them at half time about believing because we’ve shown we can compete with the big teams and second half we competed very well and deservedly got back into the game.

"Once we got back to 1-1 I felt the least we would get out of the game was a point."

DR Congolese midfielder Aaron Tshibola played the entire as Kilmarnock secured their third victory of the season.
