Footymad preview History of the Hibernian v Heart of Midlothian fixture

Heart of Midlothian face a trip to Hibernian at Easter Road Stadium at lunchtime on Monday, having the edge over their hosts in previous meetings. The visitors have won 56 of the 140 previous games, with the hosts winning just 42.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in April 2011, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Scottish Premier match.
