St. Mirren vs Kilmarnock
Scotland – Premiership
Date: Monday, 11th March 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: The Simple Digital Arena (Paisley).
It may be hard to believe, but Kilmarnock, the 4th placed team in the Premiership, is the only team in the league that has not tasted a win in the last five match-days. They have had to go through some tough fixtures, but still, this kind of form is unacceptable for a top-performer in the competition.
They have got a chance to redeem themselves and set the team on the right path this week. The team is pitted against the dead-last St. Mirren. But it would be a fool’s dream if fans think this might be a stroll in the park.
St. Mirren has the home advantage and could create problems at home on their day. The visitors will have to tread lightly if they are to take the three points this Monday.

St. Mirren vs Kilmarnock Prediction
Kilmarnock needs to deliver in this tie if they are not to be written off as a ‘has-been’ of this season. They are going against the last-placed team in the league table, and honestly, there won’t be another chance for them to script a comeback.
The h2h history surely is on their side. Kilmarnock recorded six of the last seven wins and won two of the last three meetings at this venue. Moreover, St. Mirren was winless in 12 of their last 15 home ties and lost seven of their last ten. In overall games, they were winless in a mammoth 26 of their last 30 attempts.
Kilmarnock, on the other hand, disregarding their recent stumbles, was a formidable team in the Premiership. With determination and focus, they will be able to record a win this Monday.
The game will not be one-sided though. 13 of the last 18 h2h meetings and six of the last seven at this venue witnessed goals from either side. Keeping in line with the trend, and with Kilmarnock’s current form, the feat is expected to repeat.
