Kilmarnock vs St. Mirren Prediction & Match Preview

Kilmarnock vs St. Mirren
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Saturday, 2 January 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Rugby Park.

Killie are one of the worst teams in the competition – based on their recent form. Barring a single game against the struggling Motherwell, they were on a 100% losing record in all games through December.

They had also failed to show any kind of consistency all through this year at home. In fact, since February, they have won just four times at this stadium.

Two of these wins had come against the bottom-most placed two teams in the table at the moment, while one other had come against the recently-promoted Dundee United. The fourth win had come against a team from the lower divisions, in the League Cup.

Meanwhile, the Buddies have been on terrifying form. Barring just two losses, they have laid waste to almost any opponent in the past three months. And one of these losses had come against toppers Rangers.

For the reasons, expect St. Mirren to be the better team on the pitch this weekend.

  • The latest the guests had won at this venue was back in 2013.

Kilmarnock vs St. Mirren: Prediction

Jim Goodwin’s men were unbeaten in 14 of their last 16 overall match-ups, and they had also won 12 of these games. They had also won five of their past six road trips, and they have conceded a total of just one goal on the road since October.

On the other hand, their counterparts had lost five of their last six overall games, and had conceded two or more goals in four of their last five match-ups. They had also failed to score at all in four of their past six fixtures.

At home, they have a 100% losing run since September, barring a win against the 11th placed Ross County, and Dundarton from the lower division.

Considering these facts, expect St. Mirren to emerge victorious this Saturday at the Rugby Park.
