Kilmarnock – Aberdeen preview: latest form, news, and potential lineups

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for this duel, including our predicted Kilmarnock vs Aberdeen lineups.

Kilmarnock

Kilmarnock started the season well but over the last few months they lost their way. Killie went winless in 7 consecutive matches (D3 L4) before last weekend they finally got back to winning ways.

Kilmarnock deservedly beat Livingston 3-1 at home in their last outing. Vassell’s brace was decisive for the 3 points and the striker was the best player on the pitch in this game. 

The manager could be tempted to keep the changes to a minimum, although several players had fallen ill this week and their availability will be decided right before kick-off. The only one certain to miss is the important inner midfielder Magennis, who is recovering after knee surgery. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Dennis (GK), Mayo, Wright, Findlay, Armstrong, Lyons, Watson, Polworth, Ndaba, Watkins & Vassell

Aberdeen

The Dons suffered a dramatic defeat in the Conference League on Thursday night. They lost 2-3 at home against PAOK. The experience of the Greek team proved decisive in this match with Aberdeen having themselves to blame for giving away 3 very cheap goals. 

The league form has improved vastly though and Aberdeen collected 7 points from their last 3 Premiership matches. In their most recent away outing they stunned Rangers after beating them 3-1 in Glasgow. 

Last season’s top goalscorer Miovski remains in good form and he scored both in the win vs Rangers and on Thursday vs PAOK. 

Defender McGarry and rarely-used midfielder Morris remain sidelined. No fresh injury issues have been reported. 

Predicted Lineup: 

Roos (GK), Devlin, Gartenmann, Rubezic, Jensen, MacKenzie, Shinnie, Clarkson, McGrath, Miovski & Duk

​Starting Lineups

The teams usually announce their starting lineups one hour before the start of the game.

​Player to Watch: Kyle Vassell

Experienced striker Kyle Vassell joined Kilmarnock midway through last season and he scored only 4 goals in 14 league appearances last term. The 30-year-old Englishman is making a much better start to the new season and he already netted 3 league goals. 

Vassell scored those 3 goals in the team’s last 3 home matches. He is fresh from netting a brace last weekend so watch out for Vassell going for it again now.
