Matchday Guide | Hibernian (H)
Kilmarnock welcome Hibernian to the BBSP Stadium, Rugby Park on Saturday afternoon as Lee Johnson’s side travel from the capital for the final fixture before the World Cup break.
Comments from the camp
Ben Chrisene, Calum Waters and Scott Robinson miss out as they continue their recovery, while Christian Doidge is ineligible to play against his parent club. Ryan Alebiosu is expected to shake off a knock from midweek.
Speaking on Friday afternoon, Derek McInnes said: “Today, we just really focused on Hibs and the importance of us bouncing into Rugby Park tomorrow, making sure that we’re ready to be at our best come three o’clock. If we can be the best version of ourselves, we’ll give ourselves a chance to win the game – there’s no doubt about that.”
