History of the Hibernian v Kilmarnock fixture

Hibernian prepare to entertain Kilmarnock at Easter Road Stadium on Saturday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Hibees are clearly on top, having won 48 and lost only 16 of the 86 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Easter Road Stadium was earlier this season, with Hibernian running out comfortable 3-1 winners 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. While Hibees have scored 8, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

The away form of Kilmarnock is pretty dire, collecting just 1 solitary point from the last six. While the Killie have hit 4 goals, 15 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Hibernian see themselves just below half way in the Bank of Scotland Scottish Premier, showing a record of 33 points from their 30 games played so far, Kilmarnock are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 32 points from 31 matches.
