at Kilmarnock vs Livingston, Aberdeen vs Hibernian & Falkirk vs Airdrie

KILMARNOCK can give themselves hope in the battle to beat the drop by beating Livingston at Rugby Park.

Derek McInnes’ side are in a desperate three-way struggle with Dundee United and Ross County in the Premiership and this is a must-win encounter.

Killie would probably be relegated already if it wasn’t for their home form and they are strong in Ayrshire.

They are playing a Livingston side who already look to be on their holidays. They are safe, but since they missed out on a top six spot, the fight seems to have gone out of them.

They’ve won just two of their last 11 games and both of them were at home. You need to go back to the start of January for their last win away from West Lothian.

Many of David Martindale’s players will be leaving at the end of the season and Killie should get the job done here at Evens.

ABERDEEN lost 6-0 in their last meeting with Hibs, but everything has changed since then and they can gain a measure of revenge on Saturday.

That leathering in Leith spelled the end for Jim Goodwin, but the Dons have barely looked back since then,

They have passed both Hibs and Hearts in the battle for third spot and a win here would be huge for that fight.

Aberdeen have an excellent record against Hibs at Pittodrie – they have won five of the last six meetings between the sides in the northeast.

Barry Robson’s side have been in fine form and were unfortunate not to get a point at Ibrox last week. This is likely to be a more attacking display against Hibs and they should have too much for Lee Johnson’s side at 11/10.

FALKIRK can at least gain some kind of revenge for their midweek thumping at Airdrie in the second leg of the Championship play-offs.

The Bairns have surely lost all hope of promotion after they were hammered 6-2 against the Diamonds. And while a four-goal swing is next to impossible, they should get the win on their own patch at 10/11.

John McGlynn is now under serious pressure with Falkirk destine to spend yet another season in the third tier.

With the players at his disposal, he can at least gain some respect back from their fed-up fans by beating Airdrie on the day.

FALKIRK 10/11.
