Lee Johnson will be looking to make the ideal start to life as Hibs manager after being named the successor to Shaun Maloney during the summer.
The new boss has been hard at work already, recruiting seven players and hoping to add Aiden McGeady to the squad in the coming days as he seeks to improve the fortunes of the Easter Road club after they slumped to a seventh place finish last term.
Hibs emerged successful from their only trip to Perth last term, winning 2-1 in November. But how have they typically fared on the opening day of the season?
We look back over the last decade...
