Hodson's Killie keep another clean sheet

22 February 2016

Lee Hodson and Kilmarnock kept their third clean sheet in four games, as new boss Lee Clark started his reign as manager with a goalless draw home to Dundee.

Killie saw two efforts cleared off the line in the first half while the visitors went close through Rory Loy, whose volley was blocked by Hodson.

Saturday’s result moves Killie level with Partick Thistle and within one point of Hamilton Academical and Motherwell, although they remain in the relegation play-off spot.

Hodson has played every minute since joining the Ayrshire club at the start of the month and with the right-back in the side, Killie has conceded just two goals, both of which came in the Scottish Cup defeat to Rangers.

Burns was recalled to stadiummk following Saturday's game, due to David Martin's injury in the Dons' clash with Bristol City.
