Kilmarnock can take another step closer to safety

Hearts have been dismal on the road

BT Sport 2, 7.45pm Friday

Kilmarnock can stun Hearts and all but safeguard their Ladbrokes Premiership survival.

The Ayrshire side have picked up under Lee McCulloch and will fancy their chances against the capital side where all is not well.

A home win over truly dismal Dundee barely papered over the cracks at Tynecastle under Ian Cathro and Hearts fans can't wait for the season to end.

Hearts are also particularly poor away from home and look vulnerable in a shaky defence, with midfielder Prince Buaben likely to start at the back.

A Killie win, with veteran hitman Kris Boyd in predatory form, will surely eliminate any lingering relegation doubts they might have.

Recommendation
Kilmarnock
1pt 3-1 general


Team news
Kilmarnock
Killie can't play on-loan Hearts striker Connor Sammon, while defender Stevie Smith is injured.

Hearts
The Jambos are without defenders Aaron Hughes and John Souttar, while Tasos Avlonitis is set to be rested.

Key stat
Hearts have won only once away in the league since September.
