Kilmarnock vs Hibernian Match Preview
Hibernian suffered their first league defeat under manager Paul Heckingbottom last weekend, but are backed to dent Kilmarnock’s hopes of finishing third in the Scottish Premiership.
Former Barnsley and Leeds boss Heckingbottom took charge of Hibs in mid-February and the club’s fans ought to be pretty happy with the start he has made, remaining unbeaten in 10 league games until the 1-0 loss at Rangers last time out.
Hibs have climbed above their Edinburgh rivals Hearts in the table – who, ironically, are also away this weekend to a team contending for the ‘bronze medal’ in the shape of Aberdeen.
That match takes place on Friday night, so Kilmarnock will know how many, if any, points Aberdeen have pulled ahead of them having gone into this penultimate round of games level.
Killie have had an excellent season which, if they finish third, will mean a return to European football for the first time since 2001-02 – and fourth would also be good enough if Hearts lose the Scottish Cup Final to Celtic.
Although several goalfests have ensued between these clubs over the last couple of seasons, Kilmarnock are generally keeping things tight at present – but Hibernian’s good form under Heckingbottom suggests they are worth supporting to claim a point.
