After four consecutive victories in all competitions, players of Kilmarnock took just a point in a goalless game away to Aberdeen last Saturday. They had the ball possession, but without a single real chance created, still could be satisfied as they had to play with a man less since the 82nd minute.
Hearts come from a 2:0 victory at home over St Johnstone last weekend. They were better from the first minute but only got the goals once they upped the tempo in the second half. The side is now six points behind second and third-placed Rangers and Kilmarnock and this game come as one of the last chances to get closer to Champions League positions.
Forward Boyd (12/1) is suspended, while defender Millen (2/1) is questionable. The guests miss defender Haring (19/4) and forward Ikpeazu (6/1).
Hearts isn’t naive, but the chances are with Kilmarnock here, at least in my eyes. They managed to win even against better sides at home, meanwhile, Hearts isn’t that constant all season long.
