Killie to kick off Premiership season against St Johnstone

in #KillieStories June 15, 2018

Kilmarnock will start our 2018/19 Scottish Premiership campaign against St Johnstone at Rugby Park

The SPFL released the fixture list for the first 33 pre-split matches for the campaign, which starts on Saturday, August 4.

Steve Clarke's side are aiming to build on the Killie revival, which secured a fifth-place finish last term and has seen over 3,000 fans commit to season tickets for the new term.

It is the second year in a row that we've opened up against Saints with Michael O'Halloran scoring a last-minute winner as the visitors left Ayrshire with a 2-1 win. However we went on to beat the Perth men in our other two league encounters in 2017/18.

Dates subject to change until TV selections have been made.
