Looking at those before us...

I think looking at Kilmarnock last season is quite a useful exercise. They were the team that finished 10th and thus clear of the danger spots and of course, they are the ones who employed our now manager so there'll be a lot of interesting things to look at.#

This first season is all about survival and Kilmarnock managed this with 40 points. A comparative high compared to many that have finished in 10th before them.

Kilmarnock brought in 9 loan players. We've currently (including McCracken) brought in 9 loan players. 

Kilmarnock brought in 6 players on a permanent deal. We've currently brought in 7.

So if we take away McCracken who has of course went back to Norwich, we've brought in the exact same total as Kilmarnock did last year. 

Kilmarnock used 34 players in all competitions last year. Quite a big squad. We've a squad of around 25 players at the moment not including the players we've sent out on loan.

At this stage of the season, Kilmarnock had a total of 1 point on the board - they scored a 91st minute equaliser against Dundee United at Tannadice on the opening day. It'd take them until match day 9 to surpass our current total of 5 points.

Kilmarnock's season consisted of:

11 Wins. 7 Draws. 20 Losses.

So let's take away our figures so far and see what we need to ensure survival with 40 points:

10 wins. 5 Draws. 19 Losses.

Important to note, they picked up a grand total of 8 points over the whole season away from home. Their first away win of the season came on match day 32 and their second was against an already relegated Dundee United on the second last game of the season. Also, 5 of their 11 total wins came after 1st April 2023. 

I reckon we could do much, much better than this but the blueprint is there. It seems straightforward enough.

Some good stats and comparisons there Ludo...

Clear to see though that there home record kept them in the league, the plastic pitch is definitely an advantage to them over a season.

Same could be said for Livi.

Maybe that's why these teams decided to get a plastic pitch, it's a distinct advantage over a whole season.
