Additionally, they have scored in every league game so far, with their 17 goals coming from seven different players.
“We’re looking forward to the game and we’re ready for it,” said Head Coach Barry Rodgers. “We had a good week in training, we’ve raised our standards and been pushing ourselves even more, buying in and working hard in terms of what we want to achieve and create here at the club”.
“It’s been a good week. We know that Kilmarnock pose a threat, especially in their home ground, so we need to be ready for that, be prepared to work hard and be together as a squad. It will be a good match, I think, and we’re looking forward to it”.
