  10. Killie response pleases McCulloch

    FT: Kilmarnock 1-1 Dundee

    "I'm pleased with the character we showed today," says Kilmarnock boss Lee McCulloch. "We've gifted Dundee a goal but and our heads could've gone down but they didn't.

    "I'm pleased - especially with the second half performance and we probably should've deserved the three points. There were a couple of half chances and we looked pretty sound after the goal.

    "The way we want to play, mistakes are going to happen back there. It's just about taking it on the chin and reacting - and we did that.

    Kilmarnock boss Lee McCulloch

    "We're still searching for our first win. Obviously, we'd have liked to have had that by now but you won't get anything negative from me or the players in there [the dressing room]."

    Ross County 0-1 Hibernian

    Ross County manager Jim McIntyre feels his side were unlucky in their 1-0 defeat to Hibernian.

    He told BBC Scotland: "We're getting punished for every wee mistake we make at the moment. Both goalkeepers had to make great saves today, the players are putting a lot into games, but our quality has got to be better at times.

    "We need to be more ruthless and try and get the first goal. I just want the players to keep being brave. I think we certainly showed that in the second half.

    "We have got quality in our team. We need to stand up and be counted. Every season we've been here we've put a run together at some stage and I firmly believe I've got the squad to do that again."

  15. 'We probably deserved it' - St Johnstone boss

    FT: St Johnstone 2-1 Hamilton

    "I felt like they were getting too much of the ball in the first half, so we changed our shape," says St Johnstone boss Tommy Wright. "We went to match them up in a 3-1-4-2 and, in the second half, we controlled large parts of the game.

    "With a couple of counter-attacks, we probably deserved it in the end.

    "We've worked on that system in pre-season and it didn't work too well but they do know it. But it's matched up and it's one v one all over the pitch.

    "It might only be for 24 hours, but it's nice to see us sitting second in the league."

  17. 'Hibs making life difficult for ourselves' - Lennon

    Ross County 0-1 Hibernian

    Hibernian manager Neil Lennon spoke to BBC Scotland after the 1-0 win over Ross County.

    "It got very frustrating at the end because we missed good chances," he said. "At 1-0 you're never comfortable but I thought we were very good today and good value for the win.

    "One of these days we will take these chances and win a game comfortably, but for now we're making life hard for ourselves.

    "There'll be long odds on us beating Celtic. The way Celtic are playing, another great win today, they're an exceptionally good team. There's no pressure on us to go there but I want us to go there and compete.

    "You never know, we've got good attacking intent in the team, but we are playing the champions so its going to be very difficult."
