| Kilmarnock manager Steve Clarke believes his side can take some positives from the end of their nine-game unbeaten away league record ahead of next week's game against Celtic. Things looked to be heading in the right direction on Saturday when Kris Boyd had given the visitors an advantage by half-time at Pittodrie. However, a quick second-half turnaround saw Aberdeen hit back to claim a 3-1 win and all three points.
Looking back on the game, Clarke said: "It took us a little bit of time to get into the game, but once we were in it I thought we were decent. We got ourselves in front, perhaps a little fortuitously, but I certainly couldn't see the game panning out the way it did. Alan Power was struggling from early in the game and he's a big player at set-pieces, which was why I brought Lee Erwin on slightly out of position. We got done for the first goal from a corner which took a deflection off Lee, funnily enough. That was compounded by an absolute worldie, which you have to take on the chin. We did that but then Gary Dicker was caught in possession for the third goal and 3-1 is hard to come back from. You can't win every week. We'll go away and look at the good bits of the game and try to take those into the Celtic match next week, while eradicating the mistakes that cost us at least a point."
