History of the Kilmarnock v Aberdeen fixture

Kilmarnock prepare to entertain Aberdeen at Rugby Park on Sunday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Killie are clearly on top, winning 51.65% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Rugby Park was earlier this season, with Aberdeen inflicting a narrow 0-1 defeat upon the Killie in a Scottish Premier match.

Recent respective form guides

Kilmarnock's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Killie have scored 7, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Aberdeen's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Dons have hit 5 goals, 13 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Kilmarnock are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 22 points from 26 matches. Aberdeen see themselves just below half way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, showing a record of 33 points from their 26 games played so far,

Its been a distinctly poor show from Kilmarnock at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the Killie will at least gain a draw. Score draw
