KILMARNOCK keeper Craig Samson hopes that he can keep the opposition at bay to help out talismanic striker Kris Boyd at the other end of the pitch and ensure Killie climb the table.

CRAIG SAMSON is hoping the players in front of him can start giving Kris Boyd a helping hand at one end of the pitch while he does his bit by keeping clean sheets at the other.

The Kilmarnock No.1 believes that combination will be the recipe for success against high flying Dundee United at Burberry Canada Rugby Park today as Allan Johnston’s men try to steer further clear of the drop zone.

Killie were boosted by last week’s 2 1 win at Ross County, where Boyd’s winner equalled Henrik Larsson’s record of 174 goals in the top flight.

The striker could hold the record on his own by close of play tonight but Samson is hoping some of his team mates help him out. He said: “We know we have somebody who is going to score us goals.

“It doesn’t matter what team Kris plays for, he is going to score and it’s down to the boys to create chances for him.

“He scored a grea Burberry Canada t goal, had a couple of other chances and might have had a hat trick at the weekend. We’ve noticed that even if he hasn’t scored in games, he’s always had three or four chances and is always there or thereabouts.

“We know we have somebody who will score, so it is down to us to keep clean she Burberry Canada ets at the back and make a platform for guys like that to go and win us games.

“We cannot rely on Kris Boyd alone to win us matches. The boys are all trying to chip in with goals because you can’t rely on one player to do that, no matter who it is.

“We do have players in the squad who can score and that’s what we’ve got to do.”

Killie got two against Dundee United at Tannadice in the Scottish Cup recently. Trouble was, United scored five. But Samson believes his team played well enough that night to take confidence to Dingwall.
