Recent respective form guides
Hibs poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While The Hibees have scored 7, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.
Hearts's away form is none too clever either, picking up four wins from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 13 goals for the Jambo's, and 8 goals against.
Hibs are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 8 points from 10 matches. Hearts lie fifth picking up 14 from their 10 games so far.
