Partick Thistle 2-2 Kilmarnock: Both managers left frustrated

Alan Archibald thought Partick Thistle were "outstanding" but was left ruing a host of missed opportunities as his side drew 2-2 with Kilmarnock.

"If I'm honest, I'm not pleased with a point," he told BBC Scotland.

"I thought in the first half we were outstanding, but we should have put the match out of sight.

"We created lots of chances, though I can't complain about the goals we lost as we played ourselves into trouble. We really should have been more clinical."

The Jags failed to register their first win of the season as a Rory McKenzie strike and a late Kris Boyd header cancelled out Kris Doolan's double.

The draw leaves both sides searching for their first win of the season after the opening four fixtures.

Both sides battled hard for a share of the points.

Kilmarnock boss Gary Locke was equally frustrated not to be taking the three points back to Rugby Park and was disappointed with the goals his side conceded.

"You are never happy drawing," he said of a result that leaves his side sitting at the foot of the table. "We should have won today.

"For the first 20-25 minutes, Thistle were in control, but I felt after that we dominated."

Kilmarnock also had to come from behind to draw with Celtic in midweek.

"I was delighted with the character," added Locke. "It was just like what we showed on Wednesday, though I'm really frustrated with the cheap goals we are giving away.

"At the first goal, Lee Ashcroft made an individual error - he knows he should have cleared it.

"From where I was sitting, the second goal definitely looked offside."
