History of the Hibernian v Heart of Midlothian fixture

Hibernian prepare to entertain Heart of Midlothian at Easter Road Stadium on Sunday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 53 of the 133 previous games, with the The Hibees winning just 41.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Easter Road Stadium was less than a year ago, in November 2007, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a Scottish Premier match.

Recent respective form guides

Hibernian's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While The Hibees have scored 8, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.

The away form of Hearts is pretty dire, chalking up just 1 victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While the Jambo's have hit 4 goals, 11 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Hibernian find themselves in a respectable 4th position, courtesy of the 13 points they have accumulated from 8 games. Hearts's 12 points from 8 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 5th position.
