It should perhaps come as no surprise that the two sides who played out the most high-scoring game in the SPL/SPFL era would have gone so long without registering a 0-0 draw.

A run stretching back to the 20th of January, 1996, ended this past Saturday as Jack Ross' Hibs side held Motherwell to a goalless draw at Fir Park.

Prior to the weekend, in the 70 matches played in all competitions between the clubs since that mid-90s encounter there has always been at least one goal scored.

The most memorable occasion was the aforementioned 6-6 draw from the 2009/10 campaign, where Motherwell trailed the visitors 6-2 before storming back late in the game.

Other high-scoring contests include a 6-2 Motherwell win in January 1998 and a thumping 6-1 away victory by Hibs a short time into John Collins' tenure in 2006.
