Preview of Kilmarnock vs Rangers 5th April 2017

It’s now officially the business end of the season and there’s points needing picked up from both ends of the table. Kilmarnock are 7th place although looking safe from relegation they can still be brought in to it if things don’t go there way but 8 points clear of bottom place Inverness. Rangers haven’t won away in the league since the 2-0 win against Motherwell at the end of January.

They currently are unbeaten in their last three games with a 1-1 draw in their last two games away to Inverness and at home to Partick with a win away to Ross County. Their last loss came at home against Motherwell at the start of March. However they may be unbeaten in the last three games but they have only produced four wins in their last 20 games with two of those at home which their last home win was back in January against Ross County finishing 3-2. Their current form in the last five games has led them to score seven goals and concede five. They sit 10th place with their home form as they’re better on the road it seems with them in 5th place.

Kris Boyd is joint top scorer with Coulibaly who left for Egypt in January they have 8 goals in the league, Gary Dicker tops Kilmarnock’s assist charts with four for the season in the league. Kris Boyd has now officially got the same amount of goals as he did at Rangers 101 for Kilmarnock in the league is an outstanding achievement, A goal at the weekend pushed him to that number against Inverness.
