Manager Paul Hartley was delighted with Dundee's display as they beat Kilmarnock 3-1 to secure their third successive league victory.

"I thought we were terrific, we scored really good goals today," Hartley told BBC Radio Scotland.

"We moved the ball well, countered well and attacked with ease at times.

"It's not easy to win one game so three in a row is great and long may it continue; we're ready for St Johnstone next week."

Greg Stewart hit the opener for the Dens Park men before David Clarkson made it 2-0.

Alexei Eremenko replied but Stewart scored late on the ensure the Dark Blues left Ayrshire with the three points.

And Hartley was thrilled with his strike duo, as Clarkson bagged his fifth goal in five league games and Stewart scored his seventh of the campaign.

"Greg's been terrific since the start of the season, we got him from Cowdenbeath and he's taken to top-flight football with ease," Hartley added. "It was another great display from him today.

"Clarkson is in a rich vein of form and long may it continue, five in five starts. We needed someone who could put the ball in the back of the net and he's got experience as well.

"He knows where the goal is, brings other players into play and they're forging a real partnership now."
