Match Preview

Tesselaar has Killie hope Left-back Jeroen Tesselaar believes two wins in a week could shape Kilmarnock's season. The Rugby Park side are still looking for their first three points of the campaign, but the Dutchman feels victories over Dundee United in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League on Saturday and Stenhousemuir in the Scottish Communities Cup could spark a change in their fortunes. "The first three points are very important and then we have Stenhousemuir in the cup on Tuesday - to win both games would be a big lift for all of the team," said Tesselaar, who joined Killie from St Mirren this summer. "I had a year of SPL experience behind me so I knew what to expect. "I feel that we are starting to grow as a group and I like the way in which Kilmarnock play. "The manager likes to play with wing-backs and that suits me a lot, last year at St Mirren I had a few chances to play as a wing-back but it seems I will get many more chances to do that with Kilmarnock. "We were disappointed at the Motherwell result last Saturday and I didn't feel like we deserved to lose, we talked it over on Monday and Tuesday, but now it's important that we push on and only look forward." Kilmarnock boss Kenny Shiels was dealt another injury blow this week when Cammy Bell was ruled out for 10 weeks with a broken wrist. He joins Garry Hay (knee) and Paul Heffernan (collarbone) on the sidelines. "It's a big blow to lose Cammy and we were are all disappointed for him," Tesselaar added. "We have two good goalkeepers in Kyle Letheren and Anssi Jaakkola who I'm sure will do a good job." Peter Houston insists his Dundee United players will be just as fired up for Saturday's match with Kilmarnock as they were for the Dundee derby. The on-form Tangerines celebrated a comprehensive 3-0 victory over local foes Dundee last Sunday which sent them to the top of the SPL. United have made a bright start to the new campaign with back-to-back home wins over Hibs and Dundee so are looking to make it a hat-trick of wins when they head for Ayrshire. And Houston will ensure his early-season pacesetters will be every bit as ready for their Kilmarnock challenge having disposed of Dundee. Houston said: "This is another big test for us. The derby win was obviously great for everyone connected with the club but we're moving on and focusing completely on Kilmarnock. "Killie are a decent side who like to play open football so they will pose a threat. "We never get an easy match down at Rugby Park and I'm not expecting this one to be any different. "We'll go there fully prepared for a tough 90 minutes as usual and hope to build on our first two results in the SPL. "I think the way Killie play will also suit our style so it should be a game with plenty goalscoring chances." Winger Gary Mackay-Steven is set to face Kilmarnock despite the prospect of going in for a knee operation early next week. Mackay-Steven has bone bruising and needs surgery but playing at Rugby Park will not do any more damage. Johnny Russell is free to play after his red card in the Dundee derby was reduced to a yellow. United are being heavily touted in some quarters to be up there challenging for second spot now that there is no Rangers in the top flight. But while he is delighted with his side's impressive start, Houston is refusing to look too far ahead. He said: "It's been a good start but we never get too carried away about anything. "As a club, we just focus on the next game which is always the most important. "That's the best way for us to go about our business and it's what the players are good at. "It's still early days but the players are enjoying their football and of course we want that to continue." United hope to take a sizeable travelling support to Ayrshire which Houston knows can act as a spur to his players. He said: "It's one of the longest trips for our fans and it does cost a bit to get down there. "But I'm sure they'll come down in good numbers again and we hope to give them a result which they can go back up the road happy about." end
