History of the Hibernian v Kilmarnock fixture

Hibernian prepare to entertain Kilmarnock at Easter Road Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Hibees are clearly on top, having won 53 and lost only 19 of the 95 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Easter Road Stadium was less than a year ago, in December 2008, as the visitors ran out cosy 2-4 winners in a Scottish Premier match.
