Hibernian prepare to entertain Dunfermline Athletic at Easter Road Stadium on Saturday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Hibees are clearly on top, having won 27 and lost only 6 of the 46 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Easter Road Stadium was less than a year ago, in December 2003, with Dunfermline A. inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the The Hibees in a Scottish Premier match.
