Having been to the Caledonian Stadium on many occasions, I can personally state that it is probably the coldest football ground that I have ever been to. I’ve been there during the depths of winter and I have also visited towards the end of the season in late-April. It has always been freezing cold.
Saturday’s forecast is unseasonably warm and Kilmarnock’s army of travelling supporters will at least be thankful for that. That won’t to be the only thing that they’re thankful for however as we expect the visitors to head home with the three points in the bag.
Inverness may sit joint bottom of the Scottish Premiership with just 24 points on the board but they have suffered just a single defeat in their last six league games, this run including a 2-0 win over Rangers at the Caledonian Stadium last month. They head into this match on the back of successive draws with Partick Thistle and Ross County, however we’re not so confident that they can make a return to winning ways this weekend.
Visitors Kilmarnock have been something of a mixed bag in recent weeks and their last trip to the Highlands ended in a Killie victory. Indeed their form on the road has been pretty impressive of late with an away win against St Johnstone and draws at Dundee, Hamilton and Partick. Indeed with no defeats in their last five away games, we’ll be backing Killie to extend their unbeaten run away from Rugby Park by collecting all three points in Inverness.
