Kilmarnock assistant manager Jimmy Nicholl says his side will have to improve infront of goal after their 0-0 draw with Dundee.
Last season’s top scorer Paul Heffernan has been ruled out for ten weeks with a broken collarbone while Dean Shiels, who netted 13 league goals last term, has moved to Rangers.
Forward William Gros is still recovering from injury while new signing Rory Boulding made an appearance from the bench.
And Killie were unable to find their way past Dundee goalkeeper Rab Douglas on the opening day of the campaign.
Nicholl said: "It was frustrating because we would have liked to score goals.
"We don't have Heffernan and Dean Shiels - and that's 30-odd goals and assists for the team.
"We were hoping we would get a bit of joy.
"We knew what our problems were going to be and we just couldn't score when we were on top.
"It was disappointing to be honest with you."
