They are trying to return in first part of table (top six) to avoid battle against relegation, and they are in conditions to gain this target, yet.
Hearts made the opposite run: they are with only one win - against weak St.Mirren - in last four matches.
Now they are third on table, Rangers and Celtic, with two matches more to play, are too far, while, with nine points over third in table, their position for an european place in EL qualifications seems assured, also if this is a derby and their motivation should be high.
But, apart state of form and motivation, Hearts suffer some important absence today.
In attack, C. Elliot (19 4goals) and Kyle (19 7goals 2nd cotopscorer) are out, same for Mrowiec (def. 27) and Jonsson (midf.24) both suspended, while Wallace (def.9), Santana (midf. 16) and Skacel (midf. 22 11goals, topscorer) are all doubtful.
So they have problems in all sectors and, specially if Skacel will remain out, they are light in attack today.
Hibernians suffered only one goal in last three home matches and their situation is improved under all aspects after the good signing in january.
For thsi match their absences are not of so big importance with only 2nd keeper Stack and midf. Galbraith (8+13) out, while Thicot (def. 4+3) is in doubt.
Considerng all these aspects, i think that Hibs can gain at least one point in this derby.
