Recent respective form guides

Dunfermline Athletic's home form is most definitely relegation standard, collecting just 1 solitary point from the last six. While Pars have scored 4, a worringly large 19 have been leaked at the other end.

Hibernian's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the Hibees have hit 8 goals, 11 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Dunfermline Athletic find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 20 games have yielded only 14 points.

Hibernian are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 15 points from 21 matches.
