Kilmarnock caretaker boss Kenny Shiels was frustrated to earn just a point from their game against Inverness.

"I felt we dominated a lot of areas especially in the second half. It's disappointing to drop two points," he told BBC Scotland.

"We changed the system three times and each time in nearly bore fruit.

I've told the players I was really pleased with their performance, but we want to combine performance and outcome."

Kilmarnock went behind through a Johnny Hayes goal after 10 minutes, before Liam Kelly levelled just three minutes later.

Shiels, who is in charge of the Ayrshire outfit following the departure of Mixu Paatelainen, was forced to field the unfamiliar central defensive partnership of Ryan O'Leary and James Fowler because of injuries.

And the Northern Irishman admitted that, at first, they looked uncertain together.

"The two centre-halves took a little bit of time to bed in," said Shiels.

"There was a little bit of misunderstanding as to which one should have pressed the ball at the first goal.

"But once they gelled I felt they did extremenly well."
