Ross Millen punishes dull Hearts in an impressive away win for Killie

Kilmarnock scored her first win in Tynecastle in five years, with Ross Millen scoring the only goal to beat Hearts 1-0. Steve Clarke's team had spent most of the second half on the back foot before Millen had found the net in the 73rd minute. Hearts, who will now be ousted for the first time this season by the Scottish Premiership Summit, if Celtic would win at least one point in Livingston on Sunday, had looked lively but struggled to create clear chances.

The game started at a great pace and both teams maintained this intensity for the remaining half. The guests wereted a great opportunity to take the lead within two minutes, just seconds after Hearts winger Callum Morrison headed into the area under the challenge of Mikael Ndjoli.

After referee Don Robertson waved the game further, Killie broke and Aaron Tshibola prevailed Chris Burke, but the winger was blocked by Hearts keeper Zdenek Zlamal.

The team of Craig Levein had plenty of possession during the early transfer, but had to wait until the 11th minute for the first sight of the opponent, with captain Peter Haring had a 25 -meter volley just before the target.
