History of the Hibernian v St. Mirren fixture

Hibernian prepare to entertain St. Mirren at Easter Road Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Hibees are clearly on top, having won 66 and lost only 18 of the 108 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Easter Road Stadium was less than a year ago, in December 2006, with Hibernian annihilating their visitors 5-1 in a Scottish Premier match.
