Kilmarnock manager Lee Clarke wants his side to have momentum heading into the relegation playoff.
There should be no better side than Dundee Utd to get momentum from with The Arabs season going from bad to worse. An unexpected win at Inverness has been clawed back from them after it emerged they fielded two ineligible players in the match day squad.
It makes no difference in the grand scheme with Dundee Utd already relegated but they have confounded expectations in the two games since that was confirmed. Six goals have been scored, three in each game, although their defensive issues have continued with five conceded.
The head to head stats show that both teams have scored in all but one of the last eight meetings between the sides. This season it’s one win apiece with a a 1-1 draw in the match here in December.
Kilmarnock escaped with a point from Dundee midweek but they will feel lucky to have taken even that. Poor finishing and decent goalkeeping from Jamie MacDonald kept the Dundee strikers at bay.
If Dundee Utd keep their shooting boots on the right feet Killie will have to score some of their own to have any chance of that momentum they are after.
