Kilmarnock vs St Johnstone match preview

Can Kilmarnock take a gigantic step towards survival, in-turn dragging St Johnstone into the relegation scrap?

Last weekend, Killie claimed a vital victory, beating Livingston 2-0 at home, with Kyle Vassell breaking the deadlock before top-scorer Danny Armstrong converted a penalty.

Home form continues to be key for Derek McInnes’ side, given that 29 of their 34 points (85.3%) have been earned in front of their own supporters.

This latest victory saw Kilmarnock remain tenth, thereby occupying the last safety position, one point above Ross County and three clear of bottom of the table Dundee United.

After this, Killie’s last two fixtures are against both teams currently below them, so a win here would be priceless.

St Johnstone meantime kick off just one place and two points above their hosts, meaning they are very much no safe themselves.

The Saints thought they’d all but secured survival a fortnight ago by beating Dundee United in the Tayside derby.

However, a week later, Steven MacLean’s men were back to being poor, defeated 2-0 by Motherwell at McDiarmid Park.

Thus, St Johnstone have now won just three of 18 fixture since Christmas Eve, form that cost Callum Davidson his job last month.

These two clubs have already met three times this season, with both recording narrow home wins in October before the two drew 1-1 in Ayrshire in March.

Here, will Kilmarnock make home advantage count at Rugby Park?
