Recent respective form guides

Dunfermline Athletic's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Pars have scored 8, a worringly large 19 have been leaked at the other end.

Kilmarnock's away form is none too clever either, collecting 1 win and 3 draws from the last six played. While the Killie have hit 4 goals, 8 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Dunfermline Athletic are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 14 points from 17 matches.

Kilmarnock lie just outside the playoff positions in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, picking up 22 from their 17 games so far.
