A solid defence has been the basis for Hibernian's unbeaten run of late which they will be hoping to extend to four games by beating their city rivals at Easter Road. Hibs had Paul Hanlon, Paul Cairney and Lewis Stevenson on target in a 3-0 drubbing of Kilmarnock on Sunday, their second win in a row and third consecutive clean sheet. Hibernian appear to be steadying the ship following Terry Butcher's arrival with just a defeat away to Celtic blotting their copy-book from the last six games, will be confident of getting a result on Thursday.
Hearts frustrated Celtic a couple of weeks ago, but eventually went down 2-0 and were not at the races in their following game, a 0-4 home defeat to Kilmarnock. Jamie Hamill scored an important equaliser for The Jam Tarts on Sunday to salvage a point after a 1-1 draw away at St Mirren, which prevented a fifth consecutive defeat. With their points deduction, Hearts are thirteen from safety, but having stopped the rot to some extent last time out manager Gary Locke will be hoping to pick up a morale boosting victory against their rivals in this match.

Hearts away form is a concern having failed to win twenty-three of their last twenty-five away league matches, but they are undefeated in nine of their last ten away matches against Hibernian in all competitions and will certainly be up for the fight on Thursday.
