MATCH ANALYSIS

Hibernian licked the wounds from their 6-1 trouncing at Ibrox by squeezing past Morton in the League Cup and now have the comfort of excellent home form as St. Johnstone - with an atrocious recent away record of no wins in 10 - come to town. Hibs keep things tight and should nullify Saints here.
