Kilmarnock Preview – Can Kilmarnock get off the mark?

Saturday’s hosts, Kilmarnock, are still searching for their first win of this new Scottish Premiership campaign after being handed a 2-1 defeat away at Hibernian on the opening day of the season which has been followed by back-to-back draws with Celtic and Ross County.

Nevertheless, to hold last season’s runaway title-winners, Celtic, to a 1-1 draw is an achievement in itself and along with the point against Ross County, these recent results have not only helped steady the ship but will also bring renewed confidence to the Kilmarnock camp ahead of this weekend’s Premiership action.

Overall results on home turf at Rugby Park have been generally pretty steady for Kilmarnock as the hosts have suffered just three defeats out of their last 15 matches, while previous meetings at home against St Johnstone have resulted in Killie being unbeaten in the last four clashes.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

St Johnstone Preview – Can St Johnstone find first win?

The Scottish fixture computer hasn’t been kind to Saturday’s visitors, St Johnstone, as they’ve been handed three away fixtures on the trot to start this new Scottish Premiership season, and has resulted in Saints picking up just one point from their opening two matches of this new term.

A 1-1 draw away at newly-promoted Dundee United on the opening day of the season was followed by a heavy 3-0 loss at Ibrox against Rangers, and although St Johnstone finished higher than Kilmarnock last season in the top flight, their away record was pretty average.

An away record of 3-6-4 9/20 included wins at relegated Hearts along with victories at Hamilton and Aberdeen, but it also included failing to score in six of their 14 away matches as they possessed the lowest goalscoring record on the road in the Premiership.

The bigger picture shows that St Johnstone have won just three of their last 24 away matches in the Scottish top flight.
