Pars can find the net but may still fall short

Complacency may creep in for Hibs

Rhys McCabe of Dunfermline in action

Ladbrokes Championship
BBC Alba, 5.15pm Saturday

Hibernian are on a high after their hugely satisfying William Hill Scottish Cup thumping of rivals Hearts and they are likely to get more of a contest when Dunfermline visit Easter Road.

Neil Lennon's inspired blast at his players after last week's draw at Raith Rovers worked a treat when they responded magnificently to humiliate Hearts.

They look certainties to win the Ladbrokes Championship, but they must be wary of complacency.

The Pars are an entertaining side who love to get bodies forward and attack. They could easily get on the scoresheet but Hibs are highly likely to outscore them if they focus on the job in hand.

Recommendation
Hibs to win and both teams to score
1pt 5-2 Ladbrokes
