Hibernian vs Kilmarnock : How to watch on TV, live stream, kick-off time and team news

After winning only one of their opening five top-fight games so far this season, Hibs are looking to win at home as they play host to Kilmarnock.

Hibernian are set to face newly-promoted Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership clash as they play host at Easter Road on Saturday.

Lee Johnson’s men have gone between defeat and draw in their last four Premiership matches after winning 1-0 away at St Johnstone on the opening weekend of the new season.

The Edinburgh outfit have earned two points in two of their most challenging matches to date, playing to a 1-1 draw against Hearts and a 2-2 draw against nine-man Rangers.

But the team lost 1-0 in an away game against Livingston and St Mirren last weekend, but they are hoping to return to their winning ways on Saturday as they face Kilmarnock.

Hibs appear to have the upper hand this time as they have won each of their last five matches against Derek McInnes’ squad, boosting their confidence to resume their winning streak.

Both teams are currently in the bottom five of the Scottish Premiership, with Hibs in eighth place with five points and Kilmarnock in ninth place with four points.

However, Hibs will be without Johnson for the Saturday clash as he reportedly underwent gallbladder removal surgery.

Assistant managers Jamie McAllister and Adam Owen will lead the team against the Rugby Park side, with Johnson frustrated to miss a match for the first time in his management career.
