Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Rugby Park will host Wednesday’s football game between Kilmarnock and Aberdeen, the two sides who sit in the opposite halves of the table. The Killie occupy 10th position ahead of Matchday 19, and they head into the midweek game following a 2-2 draw with Motherwell. Both McKenzie and Polworth are pushing for a start after the duo helped Kilmarnock make the comeback at the weekend, while Alan Power is banned for the match.
The Dons, on the other hand, do not seem to be at their sharpest, with the team losing each of their last three league fixtures. Aberdeen are eager to put an end to the negative trend, and seeing that Kilmarnock are desperate to return to winning ways as well, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Captain Anthony Stewart misses out through suspension, while forward Callum Roberts remains in the recovery room.
Highlighted Player (Christian Doidge):
Over the years Christian Doidge has established himself as one of the best attackers in Scotland Premiership. Born on August 25, 1992 in Newport, Doidge is a Wales international who plays for Hibernian in the Scottish top flight.
He is a product of the Southampton football academy, but he did not see any game action in the Premier League with the Saints. The towering striker played for Bristol Rovers during his youth career as well before joining Cwmbran Celtic at senior level. He played for the likes of Barry Town, Carmanthen Town, Dag & Red, Dartford (loan), Forest Green Rovers, and Bolton Wanderers (loan) as well before signing a deal with the Hibs.
Christian Doidge made his Scotland Premier League debut on August 3, 2019 in a 1-0 win over St. Mirren. The Wales attacker scored his first league goal for the Hibs against the same opponent three months late. Doidge has yet to receive a call-up for the Wales national football team.
Highlighted Team (Aberdeen):
Nicknamed the Dons, Aberdeen are professional football club that compete in the Scottish Premiership. Pittodrie Stadium is the club’s home ground, and it can hold up to 20,866 spectators. The Dons were one of the dominant forces in Scottish football during Sir Alex Ferguson’s era, with the team winning three Scottish League titles from 1980 to 1985.
However, Aberdeen clinched their first domestic trophy in the 1954/55 season, with the team finishing the process three points clear of Scottish giants Celtic. The club’s biggest success came in the 1982/83 season when they defeated the famous Spanish club Real Madrid 2-1 in the title game. Later in 1983, Aberdeen won the UEFA Super Cup as they defeated Hamburger SV 2-0 at Volksparkstadion.
