Neil Warnock’s search for his first cinch Premiership victory as Aberdeen manager continues after his side were comfortably beaten 2-0 by Kilmarnock at Rugby Park this afternoon.

Corrie Ndaba headed in from a corner on the stroke of half-time before Matty Kennedy scored against his former club on the hour mark to secure all three points for the hosts.

Derek McInnes’s side thoroughly deserved the victory as they extended their unbeaten run to seven matches across all competitions.

However, it was a disappointing afternoon for the visitors who failed to lay a glove on Killie. Dons boss Neil Warnock has now failed to win in any of his first four cinch Premiership matches.

The Aberdeen manager was unhappy with his side’s lack of physicality in the match. He said:

“We got bullied today. I wouldn’t want to watch that every week if I’m honest, but they (Kilmarnock) play to their strengths don’t they?

“I don’t think I’ve ever had a team that’s got bullied really but you can’t put into some players what they haven’t got.

“You’ve just got to keep going and do your best and forget about today as quick as possible and try and come up with something for Wednesday.

“We’ve got to really have a go on Wednesday and try get some respectability back.”

Kilmarnock manager Derek McInnes earned his third win of the season over his former club. Despite the impressive win, the Killie boss wanted more goals. He said:

“I think we had 16 shots inside their box. So for only two to go in, it’s not a perfect afternoon, but it’s all about the three points.

“It keeps the run  that we are on at the minute (going). There’s still work for us to do to secure a top six finish which is great for us.”
