The Steelmen will be aiming to bounce back from three consecutive defeats as they travel to Rugby Park on Saturday afternoon.
The Fir Park side turned around a poor opening 30 minutes on Wednesday night to come within a goal of salvaging a point against Partick Thistle.
But it was a case of too little too late for the side in claret and amber, who paid the price for some crucial mistakes in a rocky first half hour.
Steve Clarke’s Kilmarnock, in contrast, are unbeaten in their last three games as they look to continue their strong run of form in the Ladbrokes Premiership.
The Ayrshire outfit picked up their first home win in style with a 5-1 victory over Partick Thistle and are back at home for tomorrow afternoon’s encounter.
With four points separating ‘Well in sixth from Killie in eighth, victory could be crucial for either side this weekend as Motherwell look to extend their lead and hold on the top six while Kilmarnock will be aiming to close the gap to a single point.
And Fir Park manager Robinson believes his side can bounce back if they turn up and produce a performance he knows they’re capable of.
The Northern Irishman looked ahead to tomorrow’s clash with Kilmarnock in an interview with MFC TV.
He said: “We’re looking forward to it, obviously Steve Clarke has come in and he’s turned [Kilmarnock’s] form right around and they’ve only lost two games in nine.
“We’re well aware of their threats and I’ve said it continually to our boys that if we turn up and we produce the performances that we can, it’s all about us and we must focus on that.”

“There are some positives though, we scored again so we’ve now scored in 21 games out of 25 so there’s not a problem there.”
One player who stepped up to the plate in the second half against Thistle was Gaël Bigirimana.
The midfielder is a player Robinson hopes can make big strides over a busy December spell.
And the Burundian insists ‘Well cannot dwell on the positives of the season so far and hopes to see a strong run of form ahead of the winter break.
The 24-year-old spoke to MFC TV ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Kilmarnock and admitted that the club are in for another tough game.
Bigirimana impressed on Wednesday night at Firhill but admitted competition for places has been both a blessing for the team and a challenge for the individuals.
“For me it’s important that when I have a good game the next one comes quickly so I can build momentum and get that game time and that buzz from a match day,” the 24-year-old said. “I’m looking forward to it and hopefully I can help the team to get a victory.”
“I’ve always said that competition is good for a team but sometimes individually it can be a challenge but that’s what footballers are paid for – to challenge ourselves, to do well for the club and for our own careers.
“It’s been a brilliant start to the season and hopefully we can keep that going because it’s not about how good you start but how good you finish and that’s the most important thing – how we end the season and how we maintain that standard the staff have set for us.”
