A win would Magic our worries away.

Byline: GORDON PARKS

ALLAN JOHNSTON reckons a win over Celtic tonight would send a chill down the spine of Kilmarnock's Premiership play-off rivals.

The Rugby Park boss believes his side have nothing to lose against the Champions as they attempt to climb clear of trouble in eighth spot.

Magic said: "It would be a massive boost for the whole club and it would put more pressure on the other teams. But we've got to worry about ourselves first and set our own targets.

"It'll be really tough but at this stage of the season and the position we're in as well it's a cup final for us.

"That's the way we've got to approach it. It's going to take a real team performance to get any sort of result against Celtic.

"The last thing you want to do is stand off them and let them play because if you do that then they'll destroy you . "So we've got to make sure we're difficult to play against, stop them playing and then get our good players on the ball."

Killie will have new dad Michael Gardyne in the squad despite a hectic few days that began with a goal in the win over Hearts on Saturday. Johnston said: "Michael is a dad now. He had a wee girl this morning.

"We're all delighted for him and hopefully that will give him a wee spur on the park.

"Michael has done really well this year. He had just been lacking a goal.

"You could see how much it meant when he scored, the whole team was round him."
