Recent respective form guides

Hibernian's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Hibees have scored 6, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Aberdeen's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The games have constituted a decent return of 10 goals for the Dons, and 3 goals against.

Hibernian are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 18 points from 24 matches.

Aberdeen lie just outside the playoff positions in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, picking up 29 from their 25 games so far.
