Craig Reid says Kilmarnock have more to fear from John Sutton than Motherwell do from Kris Boyd at Fir Park on Saturday.

Sutton grabbed his 19th of the season in the win over Ross County at the weekend to hit the same mark as Boyd.

Reid is not intimidated by the prospect of facing the Scotland striker, but says Killie should be at the thought of trying to stop Sutton.

He said: “There are no easy games, we may be at the top end and they’re near the bottom, but everyone is fighting for points.

“Kris Boyd has obviously been a potent goalscorer throughout the years, so he’s a threat.

“However, we can’t focus on one player and have to just play our usual game.

“We have plenty of players in our side who will provide a threat to them.

“Boyd may be on 19 goals, but so is John Sutton, so let them worry about him.

“Killie should be the ones wondering how to stop us, and we will just do our own thing.”

After back-to-back wins over Inverness and County, ’Well are right back in the hunt for second spot in the Scottish Premiership.

Reid added: “We had two big games in the last week and managed to win both so that puts pressure on Aberdeen and hopefully we can get second.

“On the pitch we just have our job to do and know if we win our games we’ll be in the mix.

“The performances haven’t been brilliant of late, but just getting three points is all important at this stage of the season.”

Inverness will be out for revenge when ’Well travel there on Tuesday.
