Recent respective form guides

Hibernian's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Hibees have scored 8, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Rangers's away form is none too clever either, picking up four victories from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 11 goals for the Gers, and 3 goals against.

Hibernian are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 14 points from 16 matches.

Rangers are leading the way in the Clydesdale Bank Scottish Premier, with their 17 games giving them a return of 42 points.
