Kilmarnock FC vs St Johnstone
After the good performance and morale-boosting victory at home over Hearts, players of Kilmarnock managed to snatch a draw away from home against Hibernians in a 2:2 game as well.
They didn't enter the game properly, were behind 2:0 with an early goal in the second halftime, showing close to nothing till that moment.
However, it was the guests who started playing in the last thirty minutes and looked better, reaching that point thanks to goals from Bruce in the 66th and Del Fabro in the third minute of added time.
Kilmarnock is now six points behind the third-placed Aberdeen and surely seeking a victory in this one.
St Johnstone is now in a really poor form, coming from their second loss in the last three matches (a draw at home against Aberdeen too), as they conceded nine goals in these three rounds.
Most recently, it was a 4:0 loss away to Motherwell last Saturday, as the guests actually had some decent phases in the first halftime, however after they have conceded the second goal at the start of the second halftime, it was all about the home side that knew how to punish the mistakes of the visitors costly this time.
With this defeat, the players of St Johnstone remain at the rock bottom place with two more teams, but their performances on the road surely making this game as challenging as possible as they have scored just five goals in six matches away, conceded eighteen in the process.
Central defender Findlay (9/0) is the only absentee worry for the home side, meanwhile, the visitors only miss defender Gordon (5/0) as already long-term absentee.
Kilmarnock have won 5 of their last 6 matches against St. Johnstone.
The hosts need to get the victory in this one to keep up their European positions race and with overall we've seen so far in the season, their three-pointer seems very likely.
St Johnstone is neither impressive away, neither in the defensive lineup overall. Kilmarnock should be having quite a perfect chance this time.
