Leagues Tipped:

Having delivered winning selections in each of his last three featured columns, SlipsTips is back to share a play from Kilmarnock's potential title-decider with Arbroath in the Scottish Championship on Friday night.

Kilmarnock vs Arbroath (Friday, 19:45)

Rugby Park could be the site of the Scottish Championship title-decider for the 2021/22 season, as Kilmarnock do battle with Arbroath on Friday night.

Kilmarnock’s collapse at Inverness last weekend coupled with Arbroath's subsequent 5-1 shredding of Queen of the South has blown the promotion race wide open.

With just one point separating the two teams at the summit, the result of this crunch clash could determine the destination of the second-tier trophy.

A Killie win would seal an immediate return back to the Scottish Premiership, while the Red Lichties would overtake their rivals by two points with a victory ahead of the final round of fixtures next weekend.

Kilmarnock head into this showdown as even-money (1/1) favourites with Bet 365 and I’m more than happy to back the home team to prevail at that price.

Although Kilmarnock have been limping towards the campaign’s finish line, they have been a different beast in front of their own fans since Derek McInnes took the reins at the turn of the year.

The Ayrshire outfit have triumphed in seven of their eight league matches at home under McInnes’ tutorship, a sequence that includes victories over the four other teams that make up the current  top-six. 

Whilst Dick Campbell's side are defying all the odds to take the fight for automatic promotion into the penultimate weekend of the season, I suspect their fairy-tale push for the title will fall short here.

The Smokies’ have won just four of their last 11 league games, not to mention they have failed to collect maximum points in four of their last five Championship road trips.

With that in mind, as well as Kilmarnock's robust record at Rugby Park in recent months, I fancy a bumper home crowd to spur their side to a victory that would see them secure a return to the Scottish Premiership.
