Kilmarnock’s season seems to be on the verge of falling off a cliff as their winless run goes on. The recent 0-0 draw with Motherwell was their eighth game without a win.
Killie are next in action against St Mirren on Monday, but there are no guarantees they will defeat the Paisley side, who are in a run of good form.
The Rugby Park side are in danger of failing to qualify for Europe. They sit only three points ahead of fifth placed Hearts in the league table.
There has to be a doubt about Steve Clarke’s future at the club, his reaction after receiving abuse from Rangers fans showed a man who wasn’t happy with Scottish football.
Kilmarnock really just need to get to the end of the season, and assess where they go from there. Another win would all but seal a top six place, and that should be the immediate aim.
It is a shame for Kilmarnock that a season that seemed full of promise following the 2-1 win over Rangers seems to be flatlining.
There is still time for the season to be rescued, and a place in Europe is still within reach. They really have to start winning matches though, and sooner rather than later.
