Kilmarnock sit in the top-half of the Scottish Premiership table thanks to an excellent recent run which has seen them avoid defeat in all-but-one of their last nine league matches. They held Celtic to a 1-1 draw at Parkhead earlier in the campaign and enjoyed a rare win over Rangers in their penultimate game of 2017. They head into their first outing after the winter break on the back of a 1-1 draw with Hibernian at Easter Road and we expect them to give the visiting Saints a run for their money on 24th January.
The last meeting between these sides ended in a 2-1 win for Killie in early December and in all honesty we expect a similar outcome in their opening league game of 2018, however this is unlikely to be the one-sided affair which many pundits predict.

St Johnstone have been pretty hit and miss in recent weeks with the Perth side enjoying just two wins from their last seven matches. They put Rangers to the sword to the tune of 3-1 in mid-December, however they head into their next match on the back of a hugely disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Dundee into the last outing of 2017 and we don't envisage them heading home from Rugby Park with anything for their troubles.
Nevertheless the visitors have been putting in some decent performances this season and given that they put three past Rangers at Ibrox just over two weeks ago, we expect them to contribute to the scoreline. That said, Kilmarnock are on a roll at the moment and while this certainly won't be a one-sided affair by any means, we envisage a home win for Killie as they further cement their position in the top-half of the Scottish Premiership table.
