Kilmarnock look for a first win of the season over St Johnstone when the sides meet at Rugby Park. Should the Ayrshire side succeed they will move above Hibs who do not play until Monday.

Killie boss Allan Johnston said: “We are in pretty decent shape squad wise for this stage of the season and of course we are still on a high after a good win at Motherwell last weekend.”

“We might not be in the top six but we want to finish the season as high up the table as we can. We have not managed a win against St Johnstone this season and it would be good to change that. The first game was drawn and they won at their place but we can win this one.”

Johnston is without skipper Mani Pascali who is suspended as well as the injured Darren Barr, Greg Kiltie and Sammy Clingan.

The sixth placed Perth Saints will look for a strong display at Rugby Park to give them the best preparation for their William Hill Scottish cup Final with Aberdeen next weekend.

McDiarmid Park manager Tommy Wright said: “This game is all about league points so we have to push next weekend’s game to the back of our minds. We might be sixth just now but I have not ruled out catching sides above us and we can only do that if we win.”

“Kilmarnock will be confident after winning at Motherwell last weekend and they still need points to get safe. We have semi-final places up for grabs as well as points to play for.”

Gary McDonald has joined Tam Scobbie and Murray Davidson in being ruled out injured for Wright’s side.
