Spartans vs Kilmarnock
The Scottish League Cup returns as Edinburgh side Spartans welcome Kilmarnock.
Spartans are a non-league Scottish side so have no real expectations here. They are only in this comp because they won the Lowland League last season. They have, however, performed a little better than expected with 2 draws coming against 2 of the better sides in this group Dumbarton and St Mirren.
The St Mirren draw was an excellent result as this was on St Mirren's home turf. St Mirren did dominate though and had something like 30 shots at goal but could only find the net twice.
Their match against Kilmarnock will be just as tough, if not tougher, and Kilmarnock need to win really if they are to win the group that Dumbarton currently top.
Kilmarnock looked much better in their 4-2 away win over Dumbarton with Kris Boyd returning with a hat-trick. He could well play and will be looking to add to his tally against the non-league side.
Kilmarnock should win by a couple at least.
