Kilmarnock look to keep pressure on Celtic and Rangers by claiming another 3 points at Rugby Park against relegation threatened St Mirren.
Kilmarnock have only suffered 2 defeats since September against Aberdeen and Celtic and despite an uncharacteristic 1-1 home draw against Hamilton they have won 5 of their other 6 home games. Maybe they are advantaged slightly by playing regularly on artificial surface.
Mid-week they beat Motherwell 1-0 in Lanarkshire and rested top scorer Eamonn Brophy so he will likely feature here assuming no injury. With Celtic playing Rangers this weekend the Ayrshire side should see this as a perfect opportunity to close the gap on the 2 Glasgow giants.
St Mirren have a poor away record picking up only 5 points. They did win their last away game but this was against Motherwell, a side who have been some way off Kilmarnock’s level this season.
There will likely be rotation here from both sides but Killie probably have the deeper squad this should only work in their favour if anything.
Should be 3 points for the home side.
