History of the Motherwell v Kilmarnock fixture

Kilmarnock face a trip to Motherwell at Fir Park 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 ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in April 2007, with Kilmarnock inflicting a narrow 0 - 1 defeat upon the The 'Well in a Scottish Premier match.
