Once again the Scottish Premiership has proven to be an utterly predictable competition this season with Celtic running away with the title as expected, Aberdeen and Rangers battling it out to be ‘best of the rest’ and every other side’s principle ambition being to sit in the top-half of the league table. This situation clearly doesn’t do much to provide much in the way of excitement and so it is with both Kilmarnock and St Johnstone as they both look to lift themselves into the top-six before the split. The realistic height of their achievements in 2017/18.
As things stand, these two sides sit level on 26 points with Kilmarnock ahead purely on goal-difference and we expect a closely-fought affair between two teams which have been rather inconsistent this term. Killie have fought their way through to the fifth round of the Scottish Cup thanks to a 1-0 win over Ross County last weekend and they have enjoyed some excellent results in their recent Premiership outings with just two defeats in their last thirteen league matches – this excellent run including a 1-1 draw at Celtic Park, 2-1 win over Rangers, a 5-1 hammering of Partick Thistle and a 2-1 win away to this weekend’s opponents St Johnstone. As such, the home side will be confident of edging their way past the Perth outfit at Rugby Park this evening.

Things have been rather more up-and-down for St Johnstone with a 3-0 hammering at home to Aberdeen being followed by a 3-1 win at Ibrox and draws with Hearts and Ross County. Their last outing ended in a 2-0 defeat at home to Dundee and given such inconsistencies we can’t bring ourselves to back St Johnstone to manage anything from this match.
Either way, we’re not expecting a goal-fest at Rugby Park this evening and we will likely witness a closely-fought affair, however Killie’s form of late has been largely impressive and we’ll be backing them to open up a gap between themselves and the bottom six in the league table by collecting all three points in front of their home fans tonight.
