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 5, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

St. Mirren's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. The Buddies's have scored 6 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 8.

Hibernian are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 22 points from 28 matches.

St. Mirren see themselves just below half way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, showing a record of 30 points from their 28 games played so far,
