Will Celtic pull 12 points clear at the top of the table, ahead of Rangers’ trip to Tannadice on Sunday?
On Monday, the Hoops maintained their nine-point advantage by drawing 2-2 at Ibrox in the Glasgow derby.
Daizen Maeda broke the deadlock after just five minutes, only for Rangers to score twice in four minutes at the start of the second half, thereby taking the lead.
Nevertheless, the visitors didn’t leave empty handed because, right at the end, Kyōgo Furuhashi’s composed finish ensured it ended all square.
Ange Postecoglou’s team had won 12 successive Premiership matches prior to this draw but, given the circumstances, it is a useful point.
Back in August, Celtic won 5-0 at Rugby Park, so will be seeking an equally emphatic victory here too.
Kilmarnock, for their part, currently sit in ninth place, just one point above the relegation play-off spot.
Derek McInnes’ side played out an uneventful goalless draw with St Mirren on Monday, meaning they’ve lost just one of their last five.
These two clubs will meet again in seven days time, going head-to-head at Hampden in the League Cup semi-finals.
This isn’t ideal for Killie fans, as their team are winless in ten meetings with Celtic, last victorious at Parkhead in 2012.
Celtic are unbeaten in 32 Premiership home games in-front of supporters, winning each of the last 11, so this one should continue that trend.
