Aussie midfielder Danny Invincibile says he is worried about the recent form slump being experienced at Kilmarnock.

He also is aware that people are playing for their careers as the Ayrshire club face a fight for survival in the Scottish Premier League.

"There is no doubt we are right in the middle of a relegation battle and we need to get out of it. Jamie Moffat has gone, so we don't have a big chairman behind us with loads of cash who can let us start again,” he told The Daily Record.

"In England, if you go down a league, you get a lot of backing and windfall for three years to try to get back up. Here, you can only rely on your crowds and the merchandise you sell.

"You are going to lose everything and it is massive. For a club like Kilmarnock it could be a real blow and we know that. We can't let that happen.

"No one is immune and no one knows how conditions will change.

"We are in a weak position. I think we own the club and the hotel, so we have assets. But assets are no good because no one has any money to buy anything,” he added.

"Unless you have liquid cash, you will struggle. It's going to be tough and we need to pull ourselves and our club out of it. There are a lot of livelihoods at stake."

Invincibile said he the form the side has shown since the beginning of the season has been extremely frustrating.

"From the football we were playing at the beginning of the season it's night and day. The manager is disappointed and frustrated,” he said.

"When times like this come a bit of a spark can change the match and the experienced boys need to come out. We have to have it.

"In training we have intensity and we're ready for wringing each other's necks at times because we are so passionate. Heads may go down on the park when it starts to go wrong but I'm going to take responsibility and won't shy away."
