Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Rugby Park will host Wednesday’s football game between Kilmarnock and St. Johnstone. Kilmarnock head into the match following a 2-2 draw with Hibernian, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against the Saints. The Killie rolled over Hearts 3-0 in their last home game in the national championship, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of St. Johnstone.
The Saints, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-0 loss to Motherwell, and it is no wonder they are seen as underdogs in the midweek fixture. The hosts aim to retain their spot in the top six, and we are positive that they are going to pick up all three points from the match. You should know that Kilmarnock are eyeing their third consecutive win over St. Johnstone.
