How have the Easter Road side done in their opening league game of the campaign? We take a look at the last 15 years to find out how the Hibees have fared.
A confident performance saw Hibs sweep past the Steelmen with Martin Boyle, Stevie Mallan and Oli Shaw on target. Hisb made a winning return to the Premiership under Neil Lennon, coming from behind thanks to Boyle, Steven Whittaker and Simon Murray. Jason Cummings was at the double as Hibs got their Championship-winning campaign off to a strong start. A terrible start for the Hibees as they went down to part-time opposition. They recovered to win the Scottish Cup that season. Goalkeeper Mark Oxley scored from his own half after the ball bounced over his opposite number as Hibs started with a win. Future Hibs striker was brought on and won it late for the visitors. Johnny Russell struck early on before United sealed the deserved win over the hapless Hibees in the final 20 minutes. A Graham Stack error gave Celtic an early lead but even a penalty save from Gary Hooper couldn't stop Hibs from suffering defeat. The TV cameras were hoping to see another 6-6 but they had to make do with a five-goal thriller. Derek Riordan was pivotal as Hibs came from behind to win. Abdessalam Benjelloun scored his first goal in almost two years for the club to give the Hibees a late 2-1 win. This was far from an opening-day cracker. It was left to substitute Jamie Hamill to break the deadlock and win the game for Killie. What better way to kick off the season than defeating your rivals. That's what Hibs did through Brian Kerr's goal at Tynecastle on a Monday night. The sides traded first-half goals with Dean Shiels on target for the Hibees. Scott Brown was sent off and Hibs trailed but Garry O'Connor secured a late point. The least Hibs deserved. A little under 11,000 turned out for the season opener but the majority went home disappointed with visiting striker Kris Boyd scoring the only goal of the game.
