We need to beat them at the crime scene. Their ridiculous winning streaks at that place tends to be what sees them through. We need to break that assuming they haven’t dropped points at home before then.
Okay, I know we can’t, but somehow deal with them better. We always seemed to be on a good run of form only to have it interrupted by an international, then struggle to regain that form when regular play resumed again. Now our squad is getting stronger maybe we can afford to rest players coming off an international appearance, particularly if it involves considerable travel or time away
It's imperative that we start the season strongly and that's going to be no mean feat against our two bogey teams. Killie Away and Hibs at home have been thorns in our side.
Champions are able to grind out 1 - 0 wins. Last season in particular we threw away 1 goal leads late on to Hibs twice if I remember correctly.
We gave away quite a lot of late goals in fact (Aberdeen & Motherwell away spring to mind) whereas Celtic won 3 or 4 games in the last minute.
That's a massive swing in points and it made the difference in the end.
