History Books | When Killie last won seven in a row at home

in #KillieStories February 14, 2018

Our dramatic 3-2 victory over Dundee last night ensured we extended our unbeaten home run to seven matches.

This is the first time we've achieved this feat since 1979 when Killie went on a run between August and October. 

Killie were part time in those days and under the stewardship of club legend David Sneddon. 

Here's how that run unfolded.

15/8/1979 - League Cup1st Round 1st leg - Alloa Athletic 2-1 
18/8/1979 - Premier Division - Dundee United 1-0 
29/8/1979 - League Cup 2nd Round 1st leg - Forfar Athletic 2-0 
8/9/1979 - Premier Division - Hibernian 1-0 
29/9/1979 - Premier Division - Rangers 2-1 
6/10/1979 - Premier Division - Dundee H 3-1 
10/10/1979 - League Cup 3rd Round 2nd leg - Hibernian 2-1

Killie then drew our next home game against St Mirren 1-1 on 20 October 1979. 

Our current run of five consecutive home wins in the league is the first time we've reached this mark since 2006.
