Match preview

Kilmarnock are back in the Scottish Premiership, so will they make a winning start to life back in the top-flight?

Back in April, Killie secured the Championship title thanks to Blair Alston’s stoppage time winner against title rivals Arbroath.

So, having worked so hard to get back up, Derek McInnes’ side have no intention of being embroiled in a relegation battle.

Already this season, Kilmarnock have played four matches in the Scottish League Cup group stages.

They accumulated ten points, finishing second behind Partick Thistle, and this was enough to see them get through to the second round.

Now, as top-flight league football returns to Ayrshire, will Killie claim three points on the opening day?

Dundee United meanwhile, having finished fourth last season, are yet to kick a ball in anger.

The Tangerines’ first European campaign for a decade will kick off this forthcoming Thursday with AZ Alkmaar visiting Tannadice.

Despite the lack of action, there’s been plenty of change off the pitch with Tam Courts departing to be Budapest Honvéd manager.

Jack Ross is the new man in the dugout; the former St Mirren and Hibs boss will be desperate to make a winning start.

Will either club claim three points at Rugby Park?

Kilmarnock team news

Alan Power and Liam Donnelly are KIllie’s most notable acquisitions this summer.

Jordan Jones has also returned to the club on loan from Wigan having not done very much since leaving Kilmarnock in 2019.

Sam Walker started the last League Cup games in goal but Zach Hemming is set to return here.

Oli Shaw will lead the line, chosen over Kyle Lafferty.

Dundee United team news

United meantime have only played friendlies so far, making their team harder to predict.

Star midfielder Dylan Levitt has made his deal from Manchester United permanent, a big coup.

Steven Fletcher and Craig Sibbald could make their debuts having joined from Stoke and Livingston respectively.

In goal, Mark Birighitti has arrived from Central Coast Mariners after Benjamin Siegrist left on a free for Celtic.
