Goals from goals from Borja Perez and Paul Heffernan appeared to put Killie well on their way to victory but they were pegged back by a three-minute double salvo from the home side as the game entered its final quarter.

"I'm sure it was an entertaining game for the neutrals and we made a contribution, which was good," said Shiels, whose side remain in sixth place in the SPL table.

"I felt in the first 20 minutes of the second-half we had control but you know what a goal can do - it gave them a great momentum shift and they were really hard to play against at the stage.

"There were purple patches for both teams and that's how football should be.

"The boys showed great spirit after conceding the second goal, we came here under-strength and to get a point is pleasing.

"You are always down a bit when you concede a late goal but you have to reflect on the whole game and it was a very good advert for the Scottish game."
