Kilmarnock vs Hearts
Date: Saturday 23rd November 2019
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Rugby Park (Kilmarnock)
Kilmarnock are in 5th place but are in bad form and have not won for their last 3 games. Their last match ended 2-2 against Hamilton who are in 10th place and that was a disappointing result.
At home Kilmarnock have the 3rd best record in the league and have lost just once here. In fact, from a total of 21 points they have 12 because even though they are not losing they tend to draw quite a few games.
Hearts are not as strong as they once were so it will be a surprise for some fans to see that they are in 9th place with just 11 points. In fact, Kilmarnock have 7 points more and there is a danger that Hearts will have to play in a relegation play-off. Still Hearts won 5-2 against St Mirren in their last game although St Mirren are bottom of the table and have clearly been the worst team in the league so far.
Away form for Hearts is poor with just 1 win all season and they have not recorded victory for their last 3 matches. The worrying sign is that they aren’t scoring many goals on the road and have just 5 so far.
Kilmarnock vs Hearts: Head to Head
- Last season this fixture ended 2-1 to Hearts.

- Kilmarnock have failed to beat Hearts at home in the last two meetings.
Kilmarnock vs Hearts: Prediction
We will back Kilmarnock to win this game and get back on track. Hearts are simply not convincing us this season and have been inevitably struggling on the road as a result. The home side will try and seize possession and have many attacks on the Hearts goal.
Even though Hearts have a good recent record here it is interesting to note that the last time the teams met Hearts were at home and Kilmarnock won that game laying down their marker. A home win for us for medium stakes too.
