Craig Bryson | Kilmarnock Post Match

“Obviously I had long four months out injured before I signed.

“We tried to rush the rehab to get back quicker and had a couple of setbacks but hopefully this is me now and I can get a run of games.

“When you have been out for that long it is just good to get some minutes into the legs.

“I had sixty minutes in the last game, seventy-five today so I’m getting there and staring to feel a wee bit better – just felt a bit more tired in the second half.

“I’ll get another full weeks training in before the Ross County game, hopefully get a few more minutes there and hopefully begin to feel a bit more like myself and start to play more like myself.

“Then in the international break, I can get a good few training sessions in and get up to full fitness and hopefully be there or thereabouts after the break.

“It’s not ideal [the surface]. I think it’s the first time I’ve ever played on it and to be honest and I don’t think it makes for a great football match. It is ok at the start when they have watered it, but then it dries out and the bounce is different from the start of the game.

“I don’t like it and I don’t think it should be used in the top league. They would not allow it in England.

“But you just have to get on with it and it is the same for both teams.

“And we’ve got to do better. The quality in the game was quite poor.

“Our quality has to be better. From back to middle we’re OK and we kept the ball quite well but when we get into the final third I think we have to show more invention, more creativity and actually work their keeper a bit more. I don’t think we did that today.

“I think in the end with the lack of chances we’ve had we’re probably happy with a point.

“It is hard to break down 10 men behind the ball to be honest and we have to move the ball quicker but I think at Aberdeen we’ve got good players in forward positions and as a team I think we have to do a bit more to win games.

“When games are tight like this we either need a bit of magic or a bit of luck or when you get set plays you need a good delivery and someone to get on the end of it. I think as a team we need to do more to win the game.

“We want to win all our games but at home we have to make it a hard place for everyone to come.

“Next Saturday is a game we have to win and at Aberdeen you have to get used to that. You have to get used to the pressure of playing for Aberdeen. The fans demand performances and victories and I think we are going to have to learn that pretty soon. There’s a lot of new players going to have to get used it.

“I’ve been used to it at Derby so I know what it’s all about. At home we need to turn up and win games and we’ll do everything we can to win against Ross County.”
