Kilmarnock face a trip to Heart of Midlothian at Tynecastle Stadium on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Killie will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 55 and win only 19 of the 99 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in April 2007, the Jambo's carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a Scottish Premier match.
