Recent respective form guides

Kilmarnock have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. A generous 9 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.

Hibernian's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the The Hibees have hit 5 goals, 8 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Kilmarnock are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 18 points from 18 matches. Hibernian's 28 points from 18 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 5th position.
