Hibs expected to have enough class to break Hearts

Anthony Stokes of Hibernian celebrates scoring against Celtic

Ladbrokes Premiership
Sky Sports Football, 7.45pm Friday

Hibs will be busting a gut to gain revenge on Auld Reekie rivals Hearts tonight and Neil Lennon should ensure they get it.

Hearts' William Hill Scottish Cup win ultimately came to nothing when Motherwell put them out in the quarter-final stage, but boss Craig Levein's classless comments about 'natural order being restored' following their win struck a severe nerve with Lennon.

You can be sure he will want to put things right and he seems to be playing their capital rivals at the right time, with exciting on loan Manchester United left-sided flyer Demetri Mitchell out for the season.

There's a reason Hibs are nine points better off than Hearts and they should show it tonight.
