Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Hibernian play host to Dundee United on day 32 of the 2021/2022 Premiership campaign. The Hibs aim to put an end to their four-game winless run, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for the home team. Defender Ryan Porteous misses out through suspension, while all Kevin Nisbet, Paul McGinn, Demetri Mitchell, Harry Clarke, and Kyle Magennis should miss out with injuries.
The Terrors, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over St. Mirren. The two teams seem to be evenly matched ahead of Saturday’s clash, and, taking everything into account, the share of spoils is on the horizon. Peter Pawlett is out for the rest of the season, while fellow midfielder Ian Harkes is sidelined with a leg injury. In their last meeting in the Scottish top flight Hibernian defeated Dundee United 3-1.
Highlighted Player (Christian Doidge):

He is a product of the Southampton football academy, but he did not see any game action in the Premier League with the Saints. The towering striker played for Bristol Rovers during his youth career as well before joining Cwmbran Celtic at senior level. He played for the likes of Barry Town, Carmanthen Town, Dag & Red, Dartford (loan), Forest Green Rovers, and Bolton Wanderers (loan) as well before signing a deal with the Hibs.
