Our prediction for this Scottish Premiership match:
St. Mirren and Hibernian take on each other at the Simple Digital Arena in the Premiership round 27. The Saints aim to build on back-to-back wins over Dundee United and Celtic, and they must be high on confidence ahead of the visit of Hibernian. St. Mirren have been scoring goals for fun of late, and we are positive that they will stick to their attack-minded approach. Both Collin Quaner and Lee Erwin are both rated doubtful for the midweek clash.
The Hibs, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Rangers, with the team beating Dundee United 2-0 on the road. Jack Ross’ troops are eager to cement their spot in top six, but beating St. Mirren on the road is easier said than done. A close encounter is on the cards at the Simple Digital Arena, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. Hibernian boss Jack Ross should have a full squad to choose from.
Highlighted Player (Marcus Fraser):
Marcus Fraser is a Scottish footballer who plays for Ross County as a defender. Fraser is a product of Celtic football school, but he made no more than one appearance for the Hoops in the Scottish Premier League. He played his only game for the Scottish giants in a 3-1 win at Inverness on February 9, 2013.
After ending his loan spell with Cowdenbeath, Marcus Fraser signed a deal with Ross County in 2015. Over the years, the defender has established himself as a first-team regular with the Staggies, making 26 appearances in the Scottish top flight last term.
Speaking of his international career, Fraser has five caps for the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. His main position on the field is a right-back, but he is capable of producing good performances as a centre-back as well. Marcus Fraser was born in Bishopbriggs, Scotland, on June 23, 1994.
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.
