Kilmarnock are legitmate title contenders in Scotland.

This was shown once more in the recent 2-1 win over Rangers at Rugby Park.

The win saw Killie go clear in second place in the Scottish Premiership table.

Steve Clarke’s side are only a point behind Celtic, but they face a stiff test in their next league game.

Kilmarnock travel to 4th placed Aberdeen, who are also in the tile race, and who have been a bogey team for the Killie boss.

Whilst Clarke has deservedly been getting massive praise since taking over at Rugby Park, he has struggled against Aberdeen.

Derek McInnes’ side knocked Kilmarnock out of the Scottish Cup last season, and also defeated Clarke’s side three times in the league.

 

This season has seen Kilmarnock win at Pittodrie, and Aberdeen win at Rugby Park.

With both sides in good form this match is undeniably the biggest of the weekend in Scotland.

A win for either side would prove their title credentials, but perhaps even more so if Kilmarnock were to pick up the three points.

They are facing a very different Aberdeen side to the one they defeated at Pittodrie in September.

Neither side will want to lose such a vital game, so expect a tense top of the table battle.
