Hearts hitman Kyle Lafferty ready to hurt rebuffed Hibs
Hibs too short to keep up impressive derby record
Sky Sports Football, 7.45pm Wednesday
Hibs have a tremendous recent run against their capital rivals, but they are too short to win at Tynecastle, where Celtic were recently crushed 4-0.
Among the scorers that day was Lafferty and that's no surprise because he has already netted 11 goals for the season and is usually the Jambos' biggest threat.
Hibs normally allow teams plenty of chances and Lafferty will be desperate to show why he chose the Gorgie side rather than the Leith outfit.
Steve Clark's men dominated against Rangers at the weekend and eventually got their rewards with two late Kris Boyd goals giving them a deserved win.
The in-form Rugby Park side have been boosted by the inclusion of former West Brom and Norwich City midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu, who ran the show against the Ibrox men.
Hamilton Accies were defeated by a limited Partick Thistle side at the weekend and Killie can pick up another win tonight.
