After picking up three consecutive draws in all competitions, Kilmarnock will be looking to get back to the winning ways when they host St Johnstone at Rugby Park on Wednesday.
Killie were involved in the Scottish Cup on the weekend and claimed a 1-1 draw at Aberdeen to force a replay of the quarterfinal tie.
On current form, the hosts are one of the best sides in the Premiership. Following a poor start to the season, they have made up a lot of ground under Steve Clarke. Killie have lost just one of their last 12 games, and they come into this game following consecutive draws against Hibernian and Hearts. As things stand, they are placed sixth in the table with 39 points.
The Saints come into this game following a 1-4 home defeat to Rangers in the Premiership, last Tuesday. They have won only one of their last nine games in the Premiership, and that win came against bottom-side Ross County.
Ahead of the game, the visitors are placed eighth in the league table with 30 points. Both sides have already played each other twice in the Premiership, and each game has ended in a 1-2 away win.
