Hibs sit ninth after the 2-0 defeat to Kilmarnock, while Hearts are propping up the Ladbrokes Premiership having not won in the league since March with fans protesting against manager Craig Levein.

However, both sets of supporters have rallied with the game close to a sell-out.

As of yesterday, Hearts also had fewer than 300 briefs left in their away allocation.

The first derby of last season at Easter Road attracted 20,200 fans, the highest attendance of the season for the fixture.
