Preview: Kilmarnock v Hibernian

Last updated : 21 February 2014 By Killie Kingdom

Team news first of all and the Ayrshire men welcome back Michael Gardyne after missing last weeks game and Sean Clohessy returns from being on the sidelines. Darren Barr is now the only long term absentee and Rory Mckeown has joined team mate James Fowler at Cowdenbeath on loan.  For Hibernian, Liam Craig returns from a ban but Scott Robertson, Kevin Thomson and Owain Tudor Jones remain out through injury. On loan winger Duncan Watmore is expected to recover from a slight knock.

This is a tricky game and looking at the recent game statistics, Hibernian have the upper hand with having won every game between the sides over the last year.  The last time Kilmarnock took any points from Hibs was just under a year ago.  This is what makes tomorrows game all the more important for the home side however Hibs will be all the more up for it to continue the whitewash.

May the best team win.
