Derek McInnes relishing first Ayrshire Derby experience

Derek McInnes understands the importance and emotion of Wednesday’s Ayrshire Derby fixture but says he and his players must keep cool heads and stay focused on the task at hand.

Killie head into back-to-back home matches this week looking to bounce back from Friday’s defeat to league leaders Arbroath.

Having experienced a number of local rivalries during his career, the manager can’t wait for his first taste of the Ayrshire version.
