Recent respective form guides

Hibernian's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While The Hibees have scored 7, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Aberdeen's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. The Dons's have scored 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 10.

Hibernian see themselves just below half way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, showing a record of 15 points from their 13 games played so far, Aberdeen's 17 points from 13 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 5th position.
