Team News ahead of big match at Rugby Park

Last updated : 30 April 2010 By Killie Kingdom

To us the Ayrshire Faithful and other followers of Kilmarnock Football Club, this match is bigger than any old firm game as well as any European League game.  Due to the fact that the result of this match plus the full time scores of the other teams fighting relegation,  could be the one to put our beloved club into the First Division.  I have to admit that I was pretty annoyed after hearing that they players have not even had relegation on their minds.  I have to ask - why not? They should have as they know that if the club is relegated, some of THEIR jobs could go as well a lot of cutbacks would have to be made - so just hope that tomorrow they do have relegation on their minds but this time use it as motivational tool to get three points in a must win game.



Kilmarnock are without Manuel Pascali, Allan Russell and Scott Severin who are sidelined due to injury (typical in an important game).  Jim Calderwood has said however that he expects them to be fit for the trip to Pittodrie in midweek.

The Perth Saints have only one injury worry and that being Alan Main.  One of their under-19 keepers will deputise for him in goal. Michael Duberry (served a match ban) and Steven Milne (recovered from injury) return for St Johnstone.
