Kilmarnock v Dundee United - Preview

Youssouf Mulumbu back at Kilmarnock

Youssouf Mulumbu could make his third debut for Kilmarnock on Saturday after signing for yet another spell at Rugby Park.

The Congo international’s arrival is perfectly timed for Alex Dyer, who will be without midfielder Alan Power for the visit of Dundee United. The Irishman damaged his hamstring last week against Rangers and has been ruled for “a few weeks”.

Defender Ross Millen completes a two-game suspension after his red card against St Johnstone, while goalkeeper Jake Eastwood remains out with a thigh problem.

United boss Micky Mellon hopes Lawrence Shankland may be fit enough for a place on the bench.

The striker was named in Steve Clarke’s Scotland squad this week, but Mellon insists he will take no risks with the striker, who will only play if he has definitely shrugged off a troublesome ankle knock.

Ryan Edwards has returned to training after sitting out United’s last two games with an hamstring strain, while Liam Smith (ankle) should return after the international break. Paul McMullan (hernia) remains out.

    Nicke Kabamba bags brace as Kilmarnock pick up first win of season

    Nicke Kabamba grabbed a delightful double as Kilmarnock secured their first Scottish Premiership win of the season with a 4-0 victory over Dundee United at the BBSP Stadium.

    The 27-year-old striker powered in a header in the 29th minute before fellow attacker Eamonn Brophy added a second at the end of the half with a fine finish.

    Newly-promoted United, whose two previous wins this season had been on the road, fought back furiously in the second half but Alex Dyer’s side was in determined mood.

    In the 78th minute Kabamba robbed former Killie defender Mark Connolly and raced in to curl home with substitute Rory McKenzie scoring a wonderful goal with three minutes remaining.

    After the start was delayed to fix one of the goal nets United showed an early threat with Logan Chalmers driving wide of the target in the 10th minute.

    Killie, with defender Zeno Ibsen Rossi making his debut after signing on loan from Bournemouth, slowly got into the game.

    Tannadice keeper Benjamin Siegrist saved Chris Burke’s angled drive after he was played in by Kabamba, back in the side to partner Brophy.

    Clevid Dikamona took over from injured defender Stuart Findlay to make his Killie debut before the home side took the lead.

    Calum Waters’ delicious delivery from the left was met by the head of Kabamba, who gave Siegrist no chance from seven yards for his first goal of the season.

    The United keeper was then asked to stop Aaron Tshibola’s long-range effort.

    However, just after the board went up to show two minutes added time, and a minute after Connolly had headed wide of the target at the other end, Brophy latched on to a Greg Kiltie header inside the box and knocked a left-footed drive past Siegrist.

    Midfielder Louis Appere replaced Peter Pawlett for the start of the second half and United immediately pressed Killie back.

    A first prolonged spell of pressure which elicited several attempts on goal ended when striker Nicky Clark fired a drive over the bar.

    Micky Mellon’s side kept Killie hemmed in with a string of passes and crosses and there would be at least a couple of handball shouts ignored by referee David Munro.

    However, Kilmarnock had chances on the break.

    In the 62nd minute Siegrist had to dive low to his left to keep Kabamba’s drive out and, as the Ayrshire side began to break with increasing purpose, Brophy tested the United keeper with two powerful drives.

    And it was all over when Kabamba robbed the hesitant Connolly and curled in number three with some confidence.

    There was time for midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu, who joined Killie for a third spell on Friday, to come on as substitute to help see out the game.

    However, it was fellow substitute McKenzie, on for Brophy, who nonchalantly chipped in from Kiltie’s pass for the goal of the game.
