History of the Hibernian v Gretna fixture

Hibernian prepare to entertain Gretna at Easter Road Stadium on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. All the previous meetings between the two have been won by the The Hibees.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Easter Road Stadium was earlier this season, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-2 thriller, in a Scottish Premier match.

Recent respective form guides

Hibernian have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. The goals for column just outweighs the goals against over this period, 8 to 7.

Gretna's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Black and Whites have hit 7 goals, 15 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Hibernian see themselves just below half way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, showing a record of 28 points from their 22 games played so far, Gretna find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 22 games have yielded only 13 points.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its been a distinctly poor show from Hibernian at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the The Hibees will at least gain a draw. Score draw

Hibernian Not drawn a match in their last 5 .
Gretna Not won in previous 3 away matches.
