Kilmarnock v Hibernian Match Preview

Last updated : 05 May 2013 By Killie Kingdom

Starting with injury news then and in addition to Manuel Pascali, the long term absentee - Kilmarnock have James Dayton and Rory McKeown out but the fans and team will be delighted to know that Rory McKenzie is fit again after recovering from illness. Hibernian only have Gary Deegan and Scott Robertson out.

This game is of great importance for Kilmarnock after having only one win and one draw in their last 7 games. Hibernian on the other hand have had slightly better success, as in their same amount of games - the Hibees have only 3 losses but two wins with the rest draws. Both teams are on the same number of points but Kilmarnock have a + 2 goal different in contrast to Hibernian's -7. Hibs won the last time the two sides met, which was at Rugby Park and in the Scottish Cup Quarter Final. Hibernian won 4-2.

This is Kilmarnock's chance is getting their own back however with Leigh Griffiths on fire at the moment and with Kilmarnock's defence not properly organised or out of shape - that task could be harder then it originally seems.
