Players have taken messages on board, says Steve Clarke

Steve Clarke reflected on how his Kilmarnock players have adapted to his methods after extending the club's unbeaten away league record to nine matches.

Kris Boyd's goal gave Killie a 1-1 draw with Hibernian at Easter Road, ensuring the club remained undefeated in six matches in December.

Oli Shaw levelled the match for the hosts with Clarke seeing Killie head into the winter break in the top six.

He said: "I don't know if there's been a transformation. I can only judge them since I came to the club.

"They've been great on the training pitch and they've taken on board every message we've given them and transferred that to the pitch.

"The results are there to be seen. You can tell by the run we've had. I think that's only two defeats since I came to the club - that's good.

"But as I said to the players, there's still a long way to go and results today make sure you're always looking over your shoulder in this league because it's very difficult to move away from the bottom when you've only picked up three points from the first eight games.

"I think we'll suffer for that for the rest of the season."
