News emerged today that Kilmarnock may have to do without their leading marksman for quite some time.

Josh Magennis is reported by The Scottish Sun to be suffering from a foot injury and is at least likely to miss the Celtic game on Saturday. Any kind of lengthy injury could spell disaster for Killie who are already flirting dangerously with relegation.

Since Lee Clarke has come in as manager they have scored a solitary goal. That came against Aberdeen last week from, you guessed it, Josh Magennis. Without him they will likely have to rely on Kris Boyd who hasn’t hit the mark for a couple of years now.

Celtic will head into this game knowing it is a must win with Aberdeen keeping the title race very much alive. They will have to do a lot better than they have managed against the Ayrshire side so far this season. The head to head shows that Killie have avoided defeat on both occasions they have played so far.

With all the unjust and uncalled for speculation over who replaces Ronny Deila from a job he still holds you have to wonder if it is taking it’s toll. As much as it’s hard to see past anything other than a clear Celtic win it’s impossible to be confident at the prices.


Kilmarnock v Celtic Betting Preview Betting Odds

Celtic are incredibly short for an away fixture at a best 1.25 (1/4) with Coral. Kilmarnock can be backed at a high of 14/1 with McBookie while the draw is available at 6.8 (29/5) with Marathon Bet.

Both teams to score is unlikely given Killie’s troubles and not even tempting at 2.08 (27/25) with Marathon Bet. For three or more goals you can get no better than 1.5 (1/2) with Coral and Betfair.

Normally for a Celtic away game I take a shot at the Half Time & Full Time markets but with Celtic half time and full time no better than 1.7 (7/10) it is entirely pointless.
