History of the Kilmarnock v Falkirk fixture

Kilmarnock prepare to entertain Falkirk at Rugby Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Killie are clearly on top, having won 41 and lost only 10 of the 73 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Rugby Park was less than a year ago, in May 2008, the Killie carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Scottish Premier match.
