Hibernian are beaming with confidence as they head to Perth for their clash against St.Johnstone. Deservedly Hibernian should be swelling with the feel-good factor. This is just appropriate after they have defeated derby rivals Hearts 2-0.
Neil Lennon should be well assured that his side would keep up their good form consolidating their momentum with another win at Perth. Even in face of the Saints have a good run of goals of late as demonstrated in their 4-0 win at Dens Park a week ago, it does little to change the sad reality that they are yet stuck down as second lowest scorers in the division. Well, Jamie Maclaren made great memories of his Edinburgh derby with a well-struck goals sinking the Hearts. He is even more likely to take on the good run and possibly score more.
It is right to say Hibernian would be going out for a pound of flesh. A revenge so to say after they had suffered a painful 2-1 defeat (at the last minutes) last year November back in Easter Road where Steven Maclaran pierced thousands of hearts with a stone cold 93rd-minute winner enabling the away side to slip off the tie with the much coveted three points.
It is all about the goals and Hibernian looks very likely to score a bout of them. But do you think Hibernian can score in both halves of the game? If yes, Willliam Hill has got something delicious for you. Yeah, William Hill is giving you enhanced odds of 3/1 for Hibernian to score in both halves. Before now it was 5/2.
