They have a better record against us than Hibs, but I suppose historically they've also spent a fair while in the lower leagues avoiding us. 😉

We've never beaten you 7-0 though. Fair play to Hibs for that.

And Killie have gone on a 122 year streak of not losing 7-0 to Hearts 

A streak that Aberdeen have yet to achieve

Hearts may have more major honours in their history than Kilmarnock but despite once being owned by Chris Robinson there's one triumph that's eluded us that Scotland's biggest small town team can proudly point to

We could do 25 Killie wins at Tynecastle and it would take us back to about 2008.

I've fact checked this and it's would actually be January 2nd 1946.  It was another decade till a lightning David Curlett double would see Killie win in the capital again

23 Sleeps left 
And today it's the programme from Kilmarnock's second visit to Tynecastle in 1955-56 which was Hearts first home game after the cup win

 It finished 2-0 to the hosts who were battling Hibs and Aberdeen for 2nd in the league. Kilmarnock were respectably mid-table and probably shrugged off their disappointment with relative ease

A 3D programme too. Now that's clever.

22 Sleeps to go and it's Kilmarnock School Janitor the late Ian Downie  and his alter ego "Nutz" the Squirrel

Seen here attempting to beat his Ayr United counterpart "Pandamonium" to death with complete disregard for "protected species" status because Ayrshire

Edinburgh Zoo will presumably be stepping up security around our Yang Guang and Tian Tian just in case his Squirrely successor Captain Conker  gets any ideas

In the buildup, it may be fun to revisit league fixtures between the two over the many years of our shared history. 

You could just pick completely at random like, say, 1965. Just as an example, completely off the top of my head.

No spoilers
But there's at least one game from 1965 in the pipeline
