The bhoys have got a 100% league record so far and will want to keep that going at the expense of the Rugby Park side. It will also be a chance to show our strength in depth with Neil Lennon likely to ring in the changes.
The man given the whistle by the SFA for the 1pm Kick-off is Greg Aitken and he will be flanked by David Doig, John McCrossan and fourth official Bobby Madden.
