Kilmarnock see off Livingston to climb into Ladbrokes Premiership top six

October 19, 2019

Kilmarnock moved into the top six of the Ladbrokes Premiership with a deserved 2-1 victory over Livingston.​Goals either side of half-time from captain Gary Dicker and Rory McKenzie did the damage as Angelo Alessio’s side withstood a late Lee Miller consolation to record their fourth league win in six matches.​​The Ayrshire side move up to fifth with the victory, while Livingston drop down a place to seventh.​​There was not much between the teams in a largely dull first-half. Gary Holt’s visitors were full of confidence after a recent 2-0 success over Celtic but they could only fashion one half chance as winger Steven Lawless fired into the side netting.​​Kilmarnock were equally wasteful in possession until Dicker led the way with a cool side-footed finish six minutes before the interval.
