Dundee United face struggling Hibernian on Christmas Eve, knowing that a win could boost them into the top half of the Scottish Premier League. Hibernian are desperately seeking a win, something they’ve gone without in their last 9 games.
Hibs are having a torrid time this season, managing to get just 14 points from 18 games.
With just 2 goals scored in their last 5 games, Hibernian are struggling to pull themselves out of a huge hole, and confidence must be very low indeed.
Dundee United have had a mixture of good and bad results recently, but will expect to beat Hibernian in front of home fans at Tannadice Park.
The Tangerine’s have accumulated more points away from home so far this season, but have managed to beat 5th placed Hearts, and Inverness Caley Thistle at Tannadice this season.
The game has important points at stake for both sides, but Hibernian are lacking in any kind of confidence at the moment with just 2 points gained from their last 6 matches, While Dundee United are have lost only 1 of their last 5.
It’s likely to be a low scoring affair, but Dundee United seem the stronger team here, and should manage to win the game.
