Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Kilmarnock play host to Livingston at their Rugby Park in what is expected to be an interesting Premiership game. The Killie aim to put an end to their four-match winless run and they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways in the Scottish top flight. The good news for the hosts is that defender Corrie Ndaba is back from suspension, while both Robbie Deas and Kyle Magennis remain in the treatment room.
The Lions, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing four of their last five games. As Livingston experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Rangers, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home side. As for the away team, both Bruce Anderson and Sean Kelly are pushing for a start, while Cristian Montano and Jack Hamilton both remain on the sidelines with injuries.
Highlighted Team (Kilmarnock):
Founded on January 5, 1869, Kilmarnock are the oldest professional club in Scotland. The Killie welcome their opponents at Rugby Park, the stadium with the artificial turf. The venue, which was opened back in August 1899, can hold up to 17,889 people.
Kilmarnock won their first and only Scotland Premier League trophy in the 1964/65 season despite being level on points with Hearts at the end of the season. Fellow Ayrshire club Ayr United are considered the Killie’s bitterest rivals. The two teams have been facing each other in the Ayrshire derby since September 1910.
Dark blue is the dominant colour of the club’s home kit, while Kilmarnock footballers wear yellow and blues kit when playing on the travels. The Killie recorded their biggest win back in 1896, with the team beating Saltcoats Victoria 13-2 in the second round of the Scottish Qualifying Cup. The club suffered their biggest defeat in August 1938 as they were hammered by Celtic 9-1 in the Scottish League Division.
