Happy new year to all Killie fans and the good news is that we are unbeaten in 2016! Hearts came first footing at Rugby Park and a share of the points was just about right at the end of a fiercely contested battle. The manager had shuffled the pack again with Ashcroft and Syme being introduced into our leaky defence and both acquitted themselves well on the day.
Balatoni gave us a lead just before half time but unfortunately the visitors equalized just as the half time tea was being poured. The signs were ominous when the Jambos got their noses in front but we showed some battling qualities that have been missing in recent weeks and fully deserved our equaliser courtesy of the hard working Magennis. It’s cup duties at Perth this weekend which will hopefully serve as a welcome distraction from the tough league campaign that lies ahead.
