Dunfermline have the chance to move off the foot of the SPL table as they entertain Kilmarnock, however the Pars will have to do something they haven’t managed all season; win on home soil.
Killie are William Hill’s 5/4 favourites but their record on the road does little to convince, even against a team struggling as badly as the hosts and this could be the day that Jim McIntyre’s men, Betfred’s 12/5 outsiders, finally land a maximum haul at East End Park.
The Pars already have a psychological edge, having beaten their opponents 3-0 at Rugby Park just over a fortnight ago and Kilmarnock’s recent results do little to suggest they can reverse that form here.
Bet365 make Dunfermline 4/1 to shade it by a one-goal margin and as Killie are struggling in attack, some might fancy Paddy Power’s 5/1 for a home success ‘to nil’.
