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 4, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Dundee United's away form is none too clever either, tasting just one defeat in their last six, and picking up four good wins. These six games have produced a glut of goals, with the Terrors scoring 18 and conceding 7.

Hibernian are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 23 points from 30 matches.

Dundee United's total of 43 points from their 30 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier.

Nothing seems to be going right for the Hibees at home recently, and we can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the Terrors come away with an easy victory. Away win
