The prospect of Livingston at home in the Scottish Cup quarter finals (trying to be respectful here, but honestly!), and the anticipation of a trip to Hampden in April, let’s us know how little remains of this season’s work.
We have seven away games in the league. Motherwell, Hearts, Livingston and Newco come before the break. After the split, we will almost certainly to back to St Mirren for a third time this season and Kilmarnock, also for a third time, with the remaining place still up for grabs. Two defeats at Kilmarnock (one in the League Cup), spoil an otherwise perfect away record at the top end of the table grounds.
There is a feeling that as the weeks progress and players return to fitness, the games will get easier. That being the case, Kilmarnock’s visit on Saturday looks like one of the most important games of the season. After St Mirren, we should be rested and ready.
