History of the Hibernian v Kilmarnock fixture

Hibernian prepare to entertain Kilmarnock at Easter Road Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Hibees are clearly on top, having won 55 and lost only 19 of the 97 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Easter Road Stadium was less than a year ago, in March 2010, the The Hibees carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Scottish Premier match.

Recent respective form guides

Hibernian's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While The Hibees have scored 5, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Kilmarnock's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the Killie have hit 6 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Hibernian are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 5 points from 7 matches. Kilmarnock see themselves just below half way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, showing a record of 7 points from their 7 games played so far,
