Kilmarnock Preview – Can Kilmarnock end their hoodoo and creep closer to the top six?

Alex Dyer will not be overly worried or looking over his shoulder just yet but there will be a feeling that his Kilmarnock team have to start picking up more points if they are to avoid being dragged into a relegation battle. Killie are in eighth just now but only four points ahead of bottom placed Ross County. Their cause hasn’t been helped with the awarding of defeat without playing but even without that, it’s still a record of one win in their last six league games.

That success came against Ross County in their most recent home match and was achieved despite going down to 10 men early on. Killie will need that sort of character and performance to get a result here.


Our betting prediction:
Aberdeen win and BTTS

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Friday 18 December)
Dyer was disappointed his team couldn’t maintain their first half performance into the second 45 minutes at Celtic Park last week, eventually going down 2-0. Not only is that their fifth defeat in that run of six matches, it was also the fifth match they failed to score in. Nicke Kabamba remains the club’s top scorer with five goals.
Add recent form to the fact that Kilmarnock have a terrible record in this fixture then they are going to have their work cut out in order to get a result which would give them some breathing space.

Aberdeen Preview – Will Aberdeen get another victory at Rugby Park to go level on points with Celtic?

It’s been anything but vintage Aberdeen of late but Derek McInnes and his player will be hopeful that they can rediscover some of their better form against an opponent they enjoy playing against. The squad has been hit hard with injuries and illness in recent weeks but his big players are starting to return. Last weekend’s win at home to Ross County was their first victory in five games.

For a team who consistently beat those below them it’s an indication of how hard hit the Dons have been but they can go level on points with Celtic should they win.

With Celtic underperforming so far this season it will give Aberdeen some hope they could challenge for second spot but in reality they will be aiming to fight off the challenge of Hibs for third place which brings qualification for Europe. To do that it’s these sort of games they have to be winning and having not won one the road in the league since September, they’ll feel it’s long overdue.

Lewis Ferguson – who has been missing first with illness and more recently through suspension – will return for this one – meaning Aberdeen have their top scorer back.

It really is an incredible record Aberdeen have over Aberdeen. Not only are the Dons unbeaten in their last 15 visits to Rugby Park in the league, it’s also just one loss in their last 26 league meetings. Kilmarnock maybe sick of the sight of them but they are going to have to overcome that record in order to return to form.

It’s also a fixture which can produce goals. There’s been 11 goals in the last two meetings at Rugby Park.
