Premiership
Date: Saturday, 12 November 2022
Kick-off at 16:00 UK / 17:00 CET
Venue: Rugby Park.

Two back-to-back defeats have pushed Kilmarnock down to the eleventh position on the table. They will now welcome Hibernian at Rugby Park this week. Both teams are winless in their last two outings respectively.

The host could not get past Livingston last time and they lost that game by 3-2. Joe Wright scored a brace in the first half of that game. This is their second consecutive defeat as earlier they lost to St. Johnstone by 1-0.

On the other hand, the visitors are having an abysmal form this season. They have lost five of their last six outings. In their most recent match, they played against Ross County and the game ended in a 2-0 loss for Lee Johnson’s side. They have lost more than 45% of their matches this season.

The visitors have struggled against top teams this season. As they lost to Celtic by 6-1 last month. Moreover, they conceded four goals against Aberdeen as well. To make things worse, they are on a three-game losing streak away from home.

We can expect both teams to play defensively as they will look to avoid losing any more points this season.
