Preview: Kilmarnock v Hamilton Accies

Last updated : 26 December 2014 By Killie Kingdom

The end of the 2014 may be fast approaching, but the hard work at the Theatre must never stop! It's the final game at home of the year and Hamilton Accies are the visitors, in addition there is a lot of pressure of the home side due to a poor run of results so there is always room for improvement.  The sooner the better because Hamilton however, are in a much better position. Sitting 4th in the league and 12 points ahead, Killie have a serious amount of work to do to prevent that gap widening further.

Team news then and Hamilton have Ziggy Gordon and Andy Ryan out, Jesus Tena returns to training after injury with the possible chance of featuring. Jo Routledge returns from suspension.  A different story for Kilmarnock however as key players are out.  Darryl Westlake, Alexei Eremenko, Mark Connolly, Ross Barbour, Tope Obadeyi are injured and doubtful for this game plus Michael Ngoo and Sammy Clingan long term absentees.
