Jim Jeffries deserves alot of credit for what he and Billy Brown have done at Kilmarnock this season. He must be in the running for manager of the season. Despite very limited resources he has kept his team up challenging for 3rd spot with Rangers and Hibs.

His team play very good football and are free scoring. Only Hearts and Celtic have scored more goals this season which shows just how attack minded they are.

RANGERS

Rangers showed away to Villarreal just how well they can play. Hopefully going out will not make the heads go down. Instead it should make this team fight for more of the same next season.

I don't think they'll let Fergie have his Op while we are still chasing a Champions League spot. I hope this does not come back to bit us.

Gavin Rae would be my choice but Eck doesn't seem to want to give him a game for some reason.

I'd say it's 99% that Barry will be playing, especially after his performance last night. Most games are must-win games for us at this stage, but the next couple of games are particularly crucial imo. If we can come away with 6 points I think we'll have real impetus to go on and catch Hearts.

I think it's making a difference that we're getting a more settled spine to the team, although Saturday is bound to be difficult after the player's efforts last night. Basically any win will do for me.

Tomorrow should give us an indication of how the team will react to the Euro exit and the impending announcement of a new manager. Hopefully it will be a positive reaction and we can take all 3 points. We have to hope we can clinch that second spot for more of the same in Europe next season.

We are at Tynecastle next week and the last thing we want is to be going there with a bigger points deficit than we already have. They have a tough match at the Caley stadium so could possibly drop points. We need to capatilise on that if they do.

I'm away this weekend again so hopefully when I return we will still be in third place.

Should be a good game as Killie are doing really well and I agree that Jefferies should get Manager of the Year. But I can see Rangers winning by the odd goal and set up a cracker at Tynie next Sunday :thumbsup:

Looks sensible enough to me. Suppose Prso and Buffel will interchange on the left. I think it'll be difficult, but we'll win by a goal.

It sounds like this game should be finished by now, but it's still only 1-0. We need that second goal to come quickly in the second half.

Biggest win of the season, shame they had to get their goalie sent off for us to get it! The Hearts game is going to be a biggie next week?

good result and a decent performance in places, although for a spell in the second half we struggled a bit - if Killie had scored then it would have caused us major problems.


J-Rod was superb again

Great result but I must say it looked like we would hold out for a 1-0 win for a while and Killie would pop in the one and only chance they got.

The good thing was even after our off side goal we got that second goal and then after the Goal keeper being sent off they were labms to the slaughter.

Prso popped in a cracking penalty and Lovenkrands put in an even better free kick which I doubt most good goal keepers would keep out of the postage stamp. I wish he had the balls to do it against a natural goalie when we're not winning.
