Kilmarnock prepare to entertain Aberdeen at Rugby Park on Tuesday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Killie are clearly on top, winning 52.69% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Rugby Park was earlier this season, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-2 thriller, in a Scottish League Cup match.

Recent respective form guides

Kilmarnock's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While Killie have scored 5, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Aberdeen's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. The Dons's have scored 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 9.

Kilmarnock see themselves just below half way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, showing a record of 26 points from their 20 games played so far, Aberdeen's 30 points from 20 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 5th position.
