Hibernian can inflict more pain on their Gorgie rivals

Hearts now look like they are desperate for their holidays

Hibernian manager Neil Lennon urges on his side against Celtic
1 of 1

Ladbrokes Premiership
BT Sport 1, 7.45pm Wednesday

Hibernian can inflict more capital pain on their rivals with a win at Hearts.

Neil Lennon's side have completely overshadowed their Gorgie rivals this season, despite being promoted only last season.

They also have a terrific recent derby record against Hearts, the one blip being a Scottish Cup exit this season, which Hearts boss Craig Levein talked up like they had won the Champions League.

But Hearts now look like they are desperate for their holidays and look short all over the pitch, especially if striker Kyle Lafferty isn't fit due to an Achilles strain.

Hibs are orchestrated by the superb John McGinn in midfield and Jamie Maclaren and Flo Kamberi up front can cause Hearts problems at Tynecastle in what is usually a low-scoring fixture.

Recommendation
Hibernian
2pts 11-10 Hills
