Alex Dyer supports Kilmarnock shot-stopper, Danny Rogers, to put his mistake in the drawn clash against St Mirren behind him.

denied his side two points when he carried the ball over the line and his bizarre own goal leveled the game against

St Mirren

on Saturday. Kilmarnock manager

Alex Dyer

wants his squad to put it behind them and prepare for the battle against

Hamilton

next weekend.

He said: “

We were comfortable and Danny looked comfortable up until that point. Everything that came his way he handled until that last little bit. And then maybe it just comes down to decision-making.

“I’m not a goalie or a goalie coach so what he should do in that situation only he and the goalie coach will know. But we have to dust ourselves down and go again next week.

“We have another tough game against Hamilton and we’ll look to put it right. But it’s another game unbeaten. We went five or six games without winning and now it’s four points in a week

.”

Danny Whitehall

’s goal helped Kilmarnock lead the game and his boss believes it would bring him great deals.

He added: “

Danny has had two full games in the league and scored two goals. He leads the line quite well. He’s still got a lot to learn but he’s done himself no harm

.”

Jim Goodwin

, St Mirren manager, is anticipating the update on Richard Tait’s injury which resulted in replacing him during the match.

Goodwin said: “

Richard took a sore one and he will have a slight concussion I would imagine. We will manage that over the next few days and follow the correct protocol. But he seems okay and was nice and bright in the dressing room after the game

.”

Goodwin believes his squad put up a fight and deserved the point they earned.

He added: “

The surface was difficult so both sets of players deserve great credit as the game was touch and go.

“On the balance, Killie were better in the first half, we were better in the second. Neither keeper had a lot to do and a point was probably fair. This is a difficult venue so we are delighted with that

.”
