History of the Kilmarnock v Aberdeen fixture

Aberdeen face a trip to Kilmarnock at Rugby Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Dons will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in January 2009, with Aberdeen inflicting a narrow 1 - 2 defeat upon Killie in a Scottish Premier match.
