Kilmarnock are in incredible form, and they will be looking to cause another upset when they host Aberdeen at Rugby Park on Saturday.
Killie have won their last six games in the league, and based on current form, they are the best side in the Premiership. What is even more incredible is that Killie have not conceded a goal in their last four games.
In their last game, Steve Clarke’s men registered a 2-0 win at Hamilton Academical. Coming into this game, Killie are placed in the fifth spot with 55 points. Seven points separate them from the likes of Rangers and Aberdeen, and if they continue their current form, and they could very well sneak into the top three.
The Dons come into this game on the back of a couple of terrible weeks. In their last league game, Aberdeen lost 2-0 at Hearts and conceded the second spot to Rangers. And to make matters worse, they bowed out to Motherwell in the semi-final of Scottish Cup last weekend.
Aberdeen are currently level on points with Rangers, but they sit in the third spot due to a poorer goal difference. They would be eager to get back to the winning ways on Saturday, but we don’t see that happening. The Dons have struggled on the road this season, and they have failed to score in five of their last seven away games in the Premiership.
These two sides have faced each other three times in the league this season and Killie are yet to register a win over their opponents. A couple of games ended 3-1 in favour of the Dons, and the third game ended in a 1-1 draw.
