SPL Today: Kilmarnock v Motherwell

Why did nobody tell me this game kicked off so early?

An unavoidably brief preview.

Kilmarnock were comfortable in beating Hearts a fortnight ago and somewhat aggrieved in losing to Rangers last week.

Motherwell are a team so bereft of consistency that it’s almost impossible to know what to expect.

Impressive in beating Celtic, abject in losing to Inverness, then twice throwing away a lead at Tannadice in the Scottish Cup.

A mystery.

The last time the two met a Silva goal was enough for a Kilmarnock win at Fir Park.

The home side welcome back Eremenko from suspension while an injury in the warm up for Francis Jeffers has forced a late change for Motherwell.

Kilmarnock seem to be recovering from their dip and find themselves very much in a battle for fourth with Dundee United.

But so much today depends on which Motherwell turn up.

A tight home win.
