History of the Aberdeen v Hibernian fixture

Hibernian face a trip to Aberdeen at Pittodrie Stadium at lunchtime on Saturday, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The The Hibees will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in December 2009, as the visitors ran out cosy 0 - 2 winners in a Scottish Premier match.
