With Hibs taking on English opposition in friendly matches this week in Accrington Stanley and Stoke City, we took a look back at some of the Easter Road side’s previous matches against teams from south of the Border.
Between 1980 and 2020, several English clubs travelled north to take on the Capital club – mostly in pre-season games apart from Manchester United’s hastily-arranged visit in the winter of 1981.
Bolton, Preston, Coventry, Middlesbrough, and Chelsea have all faced Hibs at Easter Road in the last thirty years.
