A point at Rugby Park is never a disastrous result, we can't expect youngsters to perform at their peak every week, and the spirit shown by the players to come back so late in the game is a good sign for the coming season.
However, the old squad depth problem reared its head again this weekend. While the game was by no means as one-sided as a couple of bizarre match reports made out, the Dons were maybe fortunate to take a point from a game that on another day we could've lost.
The defence was laughably makeshift and occasionally shambolic, and all because we had a measly two players in the treatment room. The AFC board must appreciate that this cannot go on if their ambition, demonstrated in sacking a solid manager in order to push on to the next level, is to be realised – and that means opening the purse a touch in January.
