KILLIE boss Kenny Shiels is happy his team’s nine goals have all been fired in by different players.
Manuel Pascali, Gary Harkins, Rory McKenzie, Borja Perez, Jude Winchester, Danny Racchi, James Fowler, Cillian Sheridan and James Dayton have all got their names on the scoresheet.
With last season’s top striker Paul Heffernan out injured with a broken collarbone, his team-mates have had to hit the back of the net.
Shiels said: “It is great. Everyone has to chip in. We said we’d try to adapt the way we play and hopefully people can see that taking place.”
Killie are coming off a high after a stylish 3-1 win over St Mirren at home last week to jump up to fourth in the table.
Shiels wants his side to go to Tynecastle and build on their second win of the season.
But he is cautious about their trip to face Hearts who defeated Dundee United 3-0 away from home.
Both sides are sitting on almost identical stats in the table.
Shiels said: “It’s too early to be looking at league tables but very nice to get a result.
“Too often last season we drew and in successive games, we will continue to try to win every game and get away from draws.
“Hearts are now the second biggest club in Scotland. It’s a difficult game we’ve got to win.”
Striker Heffernan, defenders Jereon Tesselaar (hamstring)and Garry Hay (knee) and keeper Cammy Bell (wrist) are still out injured. Saturday is an all-ticket match.
