Dundee’s Mark O’Hara taking positives from draw at Kilmarnock

Mark O'Hara.

Dundee’s Mark O’Hara admits that on reflection, it was a point gained for his side rather than two lost after drawing against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.

The Dark Blues stormed into an early lead but could not build on that advantage against a nervous home outfit.

Killie ultimately equalised with Dundee having to be content with a share of the spoils.

While disappointed not to take all three points, O’Hara admitted that a draw in Ayrshire was not a bad result, especially coming on the back of last week’s home victory over St Johnstone.

The former Kilmarnock player said: “We obviously won last week so we have taken four points out of six including one in an away game so that is not too bad.

“It is a bit gloom and doom just now but hopefully we will look back in a few weeks and consider it a good point.

“Right from the start, they (Kilmarnock) were a bit shaky.

“We should have made the most of that but we didn’t.

“But they have good players at Kilmarnock and I am sure they will work things out.

“I am not sure why they are so bad at home.

“On the whole for us, I think it will be a point gained rather than two dropped.

“Hopefully with the backing of the fans we can get another three points at home to Hearts next week.”
