The away crowd for this will be barely triple figures, im sure only around 200 made it to Motherwell for a weekend game.

Struggling to see how we win this, Kilmarnock barely concede goals (21 goals in 19 games), and we dont keep clean sheets (2 - Brechin/Hearts). Best we can hope for is a scabby 1-0 with a wonder goal and them missing sitters.

TW always sets up to Killie strengths, seriously gives them too much respect. In seasons gone by it's annoyed me.  Hope he pays double the respect to them for this one.

Hope we line up 5-5-0 and play for a draw.  Play no football, just be rotten, spoil the game.

Although I demand and wish for 2 up top, I truley believe it's a waste of time away from home in our piss poor season.  Just bolt the door, dont even think about scoring and leaving ourself open. Just go damage limitations. If we get beat, likely, no different trying to play counter attack or go for a win.   TW, do your best, ultra defense!  Try steal a point.  Its bonus points from the top 6, Aberdeen away, Hibs away that might just be the crucial points come end of season.

We've not scored against Kilmarnock since 2nd December 2017.

We have 9 goals against them in the past 6 seasons.

We've next to no chance here.

Ultra defence, get a nil nil

Agree with first sentence.

Maybe we should just play with 9 men. It worked against Dons.

St Mirren continue their home form and beat Motherwell, while Hearts beat Livingston at Tynecastle and only Hamilton would be within 3 points from us, they then host St Mirren at home on Saturday while we're inactive.

By Sunday we could be 3 points adrift of 11th, with our next game at Tynecastle...

And probably with Hearts new manager bounce.

Bell end levein tried that with Scotland and ended up 1-0 .

 

remember that

Aye, everyone remembers that, hence my stupid formation prediction and ultra defence v Killie.   Avril gambled for a nil nil.  I'm happy to gamble with no strikers in the team just to get 1 point.   Cos it must be pretty certain we're getting zero points midweek.  (Although we've seen before when we hold no hope, we get a win)

Celtic played 4-6-0 away to County today, fwiw.

Best we look is when we're pressing sides and forcing mistakes out them, generally only do that until the defence ships an absolute howler then it ends though. Entirely unconvinced inviting teams onto us and allowing 90 minutes of balls into our box is going to help.

Randoom you aren’t wrong but equally if we somehow gained two points or maybe four in the next two games we’d be well set for the big 3 after that. Not saying we’ll get anything, just countering your obvious with another obvious.

Saints gaining points isn't as obvious as other teams gaining points right now :laugh:

We should think ourselves lucky the Celtic game is off this weekend.  By the time it is rescheduled all sorts of things might have happened.  In order of likelihood

- Celtic might have got greedy and sold 3 or 4 of their big names in January   

- Wee Neil might have lost the dressing room

- Several of their key players might be down with flu but the SPFL refuse a postponement

- Our defence might have improved and learned how to deal with corners and through balls

- Jeremy Corbyn will win a landslide victory

- Jo Swinson will pronounce a vowel correctly

- The Queen will reveal Boris Johnston is her love-child with Lord Lucan

- Oil will be discovered beneath McD

- Neil McCann will get another job.

You missed Nicola going an hour without mentioning brexit when she is awake.
