Matchday Guide | Inverness (A)

More than 700 Kilmarnock supporters are expected to make the 7-hour round trip for Friday evening’s Scottish Cup quarter-final tie against Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

Fans are advised to wrap up warm and prepare for sub-zero temperatures as they back the team on the road to Hampden Park.

Comments from the camp

Kyle Vassell and Lewis Mayo are back in contention after being ineligible to feature in last weekend’s match at Ibrox. Liam Donnelly also returns after shaking off an injury.

Speaking on Wednesday, Derek McInnes commented: “We’re thankful for the fans that are taking the time to get up there, but we’re mindful of those that can’t: we want to make sure they can get to Hampden for a semi-final.”

Entry information

Kilmarnock supporters will be situated in the South Stand of the Caledonian Stadium and tickets will be available for purchase right up until kick-off at 7.45pm.

Travel and parking information

Travelling supporters should note that temporary traffic lights at Killiecrankie, near to Blair Atholl (A9), may cause delays.

Please do not park on Stadium Road, running from the A9 roundabout along the sea wall, which has double yellow lines and operational parking attendants.

Prepare for the cold

Sleet and sub-zero temperatures are expected, so supporters are advised to wrap up for a cold night ahead. Make sure you stock up on the refreshed range of hats and scarfs from the Killie Superstore. You can view the new knitwear line HERE.
