Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
Hibernian will be looking to put an end to their five-game winless run in the Premiership when they take on St. Mirren on Saturday afternoon. The Hibs showed character in the last league match, with the team coming from two goals behind to share the spoils with Kilmarnock and, no doubt, they are capable of beating the Saints at home ground. Comoros international Myziane Maolida is widely expected to return to the starting XI after scoring as a substitute at the weekend, while all Josh Campbell, Adam Le Fondre, Jake Doyle-Hayes, and Chris Cadden remain in the treatment room.
St. Mirren, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 1-0 loss to title-chasing Rangers. The Saints, though, have suffered six defeats in the previous seven away games, which is the main reason why we are going to bet on the home side. Toyosi Olusanya is back from suspension, while both Conor McMenamin and Ryan Strain are sidelined with injuries.
Highlighted Team (Hibernian):
Founded in August 1875, Hibernian are the Scottish Premier League team that play home matches at Easter Road. The capacity of the venue is 20,421, and it was opened in 1893. The Hibs wear light green shirts with white sleeves and white shorts in home matches, while light grey is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Hibernian clinched their first Scottish league trophy back in the 1902/03 season, and they were the dominant force in Scottish football in the early 50s, securing three titles more from 1948 to 1952. The Easter Road outfit recorded their biggest win on September 3, 1881, with the team rolling over Black Watch Highlanders 22-1.
In February 1961, the Hibs suffered the biggest defeat in the club's history as they were beaten by Airdrie 11-1. Hibernian and Hearts face each other in the Edinburgh derby. The rivalry between the two clubs is considered one of the oldest rivalries in world football.
