NEW Kilmarnock boss Allan Johnston may be a man of few words compared to predecessor Kenny Shiels but two of them "attacking football" could well be music to the ears of fans looking for a change of approach.

However he is unlikely to revert to the long ball approach we saw a few seasons back when passes were continually aimed at the head of striker Kevin Kyle and the Rugby Park side flirted dangerously with the relegation zone and wants to keep other teams guessing.

Meanwhile in an interview with Sporttimes the boss revealed that the squad is still taking shape with at least SIX new faces needed as the countdown continues to the SPL opener away to Aberdeen on Saturday, August 3.

The boss said: "We play attacking football and still like to pass the ball and work hard, that's what we are trying to get into them, you need to win the ball back and when you get it, it's all about movement off the ball, we need to pass but also have an end product as well, whether it's a shot or a through ball or whatever. there's no point in passing it and going nowhere, possibly we will be a bit more direct For the full story see this week's Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald.
