Kilmarnock will host Hibernian in what promises to be an exciting league encounter at Rugby Park on Saturday.
Both sides come into this game on the back of some impressive results in the recent weeks. Killie are currently on a four-game winning run in all competitions. This run also includes a 1-0 home win over leaders Celtic earlier this month. Overall, Killie have lost just one of their last 12 games in all competitions.
In their last game, Killie claimed a 1-0 win at Motherwell. The hosts are currently placed sixth in the table with 35 points.
Killie have been difficult to beat of late, and they are particularly strong at home. We expect them to give a tough fight to high-flying Hibernian.
Hibs are currently on a three-game winning run, and they have defeated the likes of Rangers(a) and Aberdeen(h) in their last two games.
They are still fourth in the table with 47 points, but now only five points separate them from Aberdeen and Rangers in the league table.
Both sides have already played each other twice in the Premiership this season. Hibs claimed a 3-0 win in the first game at Rugby Park, but they could only manage a 1-1 draw in their home game.
