Kilmarnock find themselves joint-bottom of the table with no points as they prepare to host Hamilton at Rugby Park on Saturday. Killie comfortably avoided relegation last summer, but early signs this season suggest that they could face a difficult time in the Scottish top tier this season. Hamilton enjoy a good record at this ground and they will be feeling confident following back-to-back wins in the league.
The hosts have already lost to St. Johnstone, Hearts and Celtic this season, and all these results have come at home. In the process, they have managed to score just one goal while conceding five.
Accies started the season with a 2-0 defeat to Aberdeen, but following that defeat, they have defeated Dundee FC 3-0 at home and Hibernian 3-1 in an away fixture. They narrowly survived relegation last season, but they appear a much better side this season and currently find themselves in the fourth spot.
Hamilton forward Rakish Bingham scored a brace in the win over Hibernian and he will be one of their main threats against Killie. Last season, Accies failed to defeat their opponents in four attempts, and the corresponding fixture at Rugby Park ended in a goalless draw.
