McAlister was far better at right back than any performance he's put in at midfield and should stay there at the expense of Tumilty until we find better. One of our better performers yesterday without being great. I just wish JJ would do the obvious by playing 2 wingers put wide in O'Connell and Kiltie and play Dallas in his natural position of centre forward. Tisder in behind and the back 4 as it was yesterday with the possible omission of either centre half for Kilday. Then take it from there.
Anything I've heard from Killie fans suggests that Kiltie is pretty much hopeless as a winger, and should always be played as the number 10 (and there was little evidence yesterday to suggest that he's any good on the wing). Dallas had a couple of goes as the centre forward yesterday but struggled to make anything stick. I think I'd rather have him on the bench (or maybe he'd do better with Kiltie behind him). O'Connell looked good, but as a pacy player coming off the bench he's always going to have an advantage. I'm not sure the solution is straight forward.
