St Mirren must add consistency to their performances despite a strong start to the season, says their manager Danny Lennon.
The Buddies defeated Hearts 2-0 last weekend to lift themselves to third in the SPL table, having accumulated nine points from their opening six fixtures.
Back-to-back victories continue to elude Lennon’s side, however, and the boss wants his side to string together a run of results when they visit Kilmarnock.
"It has been an okay start to the season and the international break has given us time to reflect on that, on certain things that we have been doing well and certain things that we have to work on and improve upon," Lennon told Press Association Sport.
"The big message is to get consistency. There was progression last week in terms of us beating Hearts for the first time in a long while and that gives us an indication of the progression.
"It wasn't a fantastic spectacle in terms of us having ownership of the ball for a long time.
"But we had resilience about us, a mentality that if there was a mistake made, and it happened all over the pitch, we had two or three players to recover and pull us out of it. That is something that we need.
"But the message we have to get across is one of consistency. We have to get the elusive back-to-back victories, something that took us well into last season to get.
"We have the opportunity to get that on Saturday but we know how difficult that is going to be.
"Kilmarnock are a very good side, renowned for their quality passing with which they won silverware last season."
