Recent respective form guides

Aberdeen's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Dons have scored 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Hibernian's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. A generous 7 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.

Aberdeen lie just outside the playoff positions in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, picking up 31 points from their 23 games so far.

Hibernian's total of 33 points from their 23 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its been a distinctly poor show from Aberdeen at home in recent games, and, though we cannot see a run starting here, we do think the Dons will at least gain a draw. No-score draw
