Hibernian Preview – Hibees to get off to a winning start on home soil?

Jack Ross’ Hibernian finished seventh in the curtailed Scottish Premiership season last term. Overall, the Cabbage won nine, drew ten and lost 11.

Hibs had a mixed bag of results at the end of the season. After winning four and drawing one of five in all competitions, they ended with back-to-back league losses to Hearts and Aberdeen. The Hibees lost three of their last six in the Premiership.

Our betting prediction:
Hibs win & both teams to score

However, they are still involved in the Scottish FA Cup. Ross’ men take on rivals Hearts in the Hampden Park semi-final in October. They beat Dundee United, BSC Glasgow and Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the early rounds of that competition.

Hibernian will be hoping to build on last season’s seventh spot. They certainly have a capable squad of players, but consistency can be their Achilles heel. Can they kick off the 2020-21 campaign with three points on their own patch at the weekend?

Kilmarnock Preview – Can Killie return to East Ayrshire with a win?

Kilmarnock kept themselves away from danger last season, eventually finishing in a respectable eighth position. Killie won just nine of their 30 fixtures, but their 33 points was more than enough to keep them in the Premiership.

Worryingly for the Kilmarnock fans, their team picked up just one win from their last seven league and cup games. In the Premiership, they lost ten of their last 14, including seven on the spin from December to January. Killie picked up only one point from the last 12 on offer.

Nevertheless, Kilmarnock have a fresh start this weekend, and Alex Dyer’s side will be hoping to avoid being dragged into a relegation battle this season. They won just three of 15 away league matches last term, but can the East Ayrshire club pick up an invaluable three points on the road this Saturday?
