Can Kilmarnock climb out of the relegation play-off spot?
Derek McInnes’ side were beaten 3-1 at Ibrox in their last league outing, meaning they’re now winless in four.
In fact, having won just one of eight Premiership fixtures in 2023, the Championship champions sit 11th, below Ross County by virtue of goal difference.
Having been relegated via the play-offs two years ago, beaten by Dundee, Killie supporters will not want to go through that ordeal again.
Last weekend, Kilmarnock’s dismal season continued, beaten 2-1 by Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the Scottish Cup quarter-finals.
Kyle Vassell broke the deadlock in the Highlands after just three minutes, but Killie squandered a goal chance to reach Hampden, ousted by the second-tier strugglers.
As league business returns, can Kilmarnock claim their first win since 1 February?
St Johnstone meantime were involved in last season’s relegation play-off, eventually seeing off Caley Thistle.
This time round, Callum Davidson’s team are eighth, desperate to stay clear of the bottom two.
The Saints were smashed 3-0 by Hearts a fortnight ago, so need wins if they’re going to gatecrash the top six before the split.
Both meetings between these two this season have produced home wins, 2-1 in Ayrshire in early-October and then 1-0 in Perth 24 days later.
Will this one at Rugby Park continue that trend?
