Recent respective form guides

Kilmarnock's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Killie have scored 7, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

St. Mirren's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. While the Buddies have hit 4 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Kilmarnock are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 25 points from 28 matches. St. Mirren are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 27 points from 26 matches.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its been a distinctly poor show from Kilmarnock at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the Killie will at least gain a draw. Score draw

Kilmarnock 7 games since last home draw.
Not drawn a match in their last 8 .
St. Mirren Not won in previous 2 away matches.
No win in the 3 most recent games.
