“It was a good performance,” Mellon said.

“We knew we would have to play like we did as Kilmarnock under Alex Dyer are a very well-organized side and established at this level.

“So we would have to get things right in order to get a result tonight and we are delighted to do that.

“It was special to see both my strikers scoring. I have to say that they have suffered a wee bit because the types of strikers they are, they play well in pairs.

“But we felt we had to try to find some defensive solidity which meant that the way the team shaped up maybe didn’t allow us to get two players up the pitch.

“But they scored two terrific goals and we could have had a couple more.

“We are delighted with where we are. We are up to fifth but we won’t be getting carried away.”

Kilmarnock have lost their last seven Premiership games and because they have not even scored in any of those games, Kilmarnock boss

Alex Dyer

admits that it is a worrying time for the club.

“It was a tough one because I thought we started the game well and created a few chances,” he said.

“The heads didn’t drop and they kept working hard.

“It is worrying though as we want to score goals and win games. We have a tough period coming up but we have to get as many points as we can in the next four games.”
