Kilmarnock vs. Dundee United Match Analysis and Prediction

The search for the first win in the Scottish Premiership remains a battle for side Kilmarnock. The side will be playing host to side Dundee United this weekend. The match schedules for Saturday at Rugby Park with kickoff at 5 pm.

Dundee United seemed to be holding off defending champions Celtic in their last outing but ended in a 1-0 loss. Despite the loss, the side currently sits at fifth position in the Scottish Premiership.

After making it to the top flight and changing the dugout, United looks content with staying at the top of the relegation zone. Mickey Mellon managed to pick seven points from their last five matches. The side narrowly lost to sides Celtic and Hibernian.

Mellon looks keen on cementing on the future of striker Lawrence Shankland to the camp this season. The side is slowly picking rhythm to the demands of the league. However, their last loss to Celtic was disappointing, with only seven minutes to the final whistle.

Kilmarnock will be coming off a nine winless streak dating back to February. The side failed to take advantage of a possible win against side Ross County and St. Johnstone. The side currently holds the worst defensive record in the league. This remains a major hassle for Gray to secure a win against Dundee United.

Mellon looks to maintain the same starting lineup after almost getting the job done against Celtic. This will grant Nick Clark the starting position in the attack in place of Louis Appere, who is yet to make a debut.
