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 16 have been leaked at the other end.

Dunfermline A.'s away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Pars have hit 7 goals, 15 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Kilmarnock see themselves just below half way in the Bank of Scotland Scottish Premier, showing a record of 20 points from their 19 games played so far, Dunfermline A. find themselves in a respectable 4th position, courtesy of the 30 points they have accumulated from 19 games.
