Kilmarnock prepare to entertain Hamilton Academical at Rugby Park on Sunday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Killie are clearly on top, having won 40 and lost only 8 of the 63 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Rugby Park was earlier this season, the Killie carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Scottish Premier match.

Recent respective form guides

Kilmarnock's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. The Killie's have scored 7 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 8.

Hamilton Ac.'s away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. Accies have conceded 12 goals in these games, and only hit 3 in reply.

Kilmarnock see themselves just below half way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, showing a record of 26 points from their 22 games played so far, Hamilton Ac. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 23 points from 22 matches.
