Ladbrokes Premiership



FORM team Killie soared into top spot, albeit for 24 hours as they eased past the struggling Taysiders in a dominant display at Rugby Park.

However boss Steve Clarke typically played down their achievements although praised his players for their relentnessness.

He said after the match: "Being top of the league isn't important. That we have 34 points from 18 games is important. Our points per game is good. The league table is not a reflection. Celtic have three games in hand and I'm looking forward to next week already.Right from the start of teh seocnd half we were the better team, right on top."

A low key first half ended goalless.

However Killie broke the deadlock in 54 minutes when Greg Stewart swung over a corner-kick which the Dundee defence failed to deal with and Kirk Broadfoot pounced to force the ball over the line. Twelve minutes later, Eamonn Brophy aimed a cross at the back post for Stewart but the ball only went as far as Genseric Kusunga, who turned it into his own net.

It was 3-0 in 79 minutes when Stewart nudged home a Chris Burke cross following an error by Andy Boyle.

Kenny Miller netted for the Dens Parkers a minute from time which at least kept his side off bottom spot.
