Kilmarnock vs Rangers Prediction
Kilmarnock completed back to back wins, for the first time since late October, after they took down Hearts on the road with a 3-2 scorecard. Despite being reduced to ten men in the closing stages of the game, the hosts did just enough to thwart their counterparts from finding an equalizer, and deservedly walked away with all three points at the last blast of the whistle.
It is also worth mentioning that the home team are currently unbeaten in their past three games in all competitions. As far as the Premiership is concerned, Kilmarnock are sitting seventh on the ladder, one-point shy of the Championship group.
On the other hand, Rangers got the better of Hibernian in their last clash at home. The visitors have not been at the losing end in any of their past four games, and have stumbled just once in their last ten.
Furthermore, to be frank, Steven Gerrard’s men have been a force to reckon with, even on the road. They have admitted defeat just once away from home this season. And are, at present, sporting the second-best away statistics in the cluster as well.
In sharp contrast, Kilmarnock have not been able to ensure a similar consistency in their respective matchups at home. The hosts have tasted success just once in their past four Premiership games here.
Taking into account that their last meeting with this foe here also saw them at the losing end of a 2-1 scorecard, it is certainly safe to expect Rangers to pick up the win in this one.
Additionally, irrespective of the venue, Rangers know their way around in the final third. Impressively, they have scored two goals or more in all but one of their past eight outings in the top flight.
Meanwhile, fifteen of the twenty-five goals that Kilmarnock have netted so far have come from their clashes on home soil. Moreover, four of the previous six clashes at this stadium have witnessed a total of three goals or more on the final scorecards.
Given that five of their last six h2h meetings here have also featured over 2.5 goals on the charts, expect no dearth of goals come Wednesday either.
