Killie boss Jim Jefferies believes signing Momo Sylla from Leicester has already paid dividends following their 1-0 win over Dundee United, But Jefferies said his quest to bring the 29-year-old to Rugby Park had paid dividends.
He said: "Momo was massive for us.
"He was the target for me right from the start and I'm glad we got him.
"We had him playing up front, wide on the right and then right-back because I knew he could play there from his days at St Johnstone.
"He was a big player for us".
"Rocco Quinn was also out wide and back in the middle. So it's important to have players that can play in different positions.
"We have three central defenders out now but I am waiting on a phone call to see if I will be successful in bringing in some cover."
Killie have struggled in recent weeks but Jefferies was adamant that one good result would bring confidence soaring back.
