Kilmarnock have received a boost ahead of Wednesday’s match against Motherwell. Defender Kirk Broadfoot returns from suspension after missing Saturday’s 1-0 loss to Livingston and the 5-0 Scottish Cup defeat to Rangers.

Broadfoot has been a key defender for Kilmarnock this season. Manager Steve Clarke will be delighted to have such an experienced player back in the ranks.

Kilmarnock are needing to reverse a poor run of results, and the return of Broadfoot can only help that. The Rugby Park side are without a win in their last seven games. A run which has killed off any chance of them realistically contending for the league. It has also ended dreams of winning a first Scottish Cup since 1997.

Clarke really needs to find a way to arrest the slide in form, which is the first real bad run of form he has had at the club since taking over.

A win over Motherwell would help, but it won’t be easy. The Steelmen had won six games in a row before losing 4-1 to Celtic on Sunday. If Killie manage to get into a groove though, the likes of Jordan Jones and Eamonn Brophy are capable of winning the points. Add the return of Broadfoot in defence and Killie could be back in business.
