Since a 4-0 victory for Hearts against Kilmarnock in December 2016, they have failed to net more than a single goal in any of their past six Scottish Premiership games against Killie (W2 D2 L2).
Kilmarnock are unbeaten in their past two visits to Hearts in the Premiership (W1 D1), however, they last kept a clean sheet at Tyncastle Park in a 4-0 victory back in December 2013, conceding in each of their past six (13 goals in total).
Hearts have failed to score in their past two league games (D1 L1), last failing to score in three consecutive Premiership games in December 2017.
Kilmarnock have lost just one of their past seven league games on the road (W3 D3), including a 0-0 draw against Celtic at Celtic Park and a 1-1 draw against Rangers at Ibrox in their last away game.
The absent Steven Naismith has been directly involved in 53% of Hearts’ 19 Premiership goals so far this campaign (7 goals, 3 assists) – no player has had a hand in a higher percentage of their side’s goals.
