David Moberg Karlsson

Saturday loan preview


Moberg Karlsson one of eight Cats set to feature on Saturday.

David Moberg Karlsson could make his debut for Kilmarnock as the Ayrshire outfit travel to Dundee United on Saturday.

The Swedish youngster has not yet had the opportunity to feature for Killie since moving north of the border in January due to Allan Johnston’s side already being knocked out of the Scottish Cup.

A win for the visitors could see them move into seventh place whilst United could move up to fourth in the Scottish Premiership.

Meanwhile, Duncan Watmore will hope to make his home debut for Hibernian as the Easter Road outfit host Ross County in the Scottish Premiership.

A win for Hibs could see them close the gap on sixth place St Johnstone to one point whilst County could leapfrog St Mirren into ninth.

Elsewhere, Danny Graham’s Middlesbrough travel to Vicarage Road to face the Gateshead-born frontman’s former club Watford.

A win for Aitor Karanka’s side could see them move within five points of the play-off places whilst Watford will leapfrog the Teessiders into the top half if the Hornets record their fourth consecutive home win.

On Saturday evening, Modibo Diakite’s Fiorentina could move into third place in Serie A should they pick up all three points against Inter Milan in Florence.

Diakite helped the Viola secure a place in the Coppa Italia final in midweek and he’ll hope to help his new side extend an unbeaten home record that stretches back to October.

In League One, Billy Knott and Jordan Pickford should feature for Port Vale and Carlisle United respectively.

Knott’s Valiants travel to Shrewsbury whilst Pickford’s Cumbrians head south to Crawley.

In League Two, Mikael Mandron’s Fleetwood Town host basement side Northampton Town as the Cod Army look to return to the automatic promotion spots in the fourth tier.

A win for Graham Alexander’s side could see them move as high as second whilst the Cobblers are looking to close the gap to safety to just two points.

In non-league, Liam Agnew’s Boston United travel to Colwyn Bay in the Skrill North knowing a win could take them to the top of the table.

The Pilgrims’ four-game unbeaten run was ended last weekend as promotion rivals Brackley Town won 2-1 in Lincolnshire.
