After last weeks away day drama in the Scottish Cup at Tannadice,the Dons go again on their travels,this time
to Edinburgh to face high flying Hibernian at Easter Road.

Tony Mowbray has got the Hibees flying high this season as they sit behind city rivals Hearts and are also four points ahead of Champions Rangers in the race for the SPL.

Hibernian are proving a very attractive side to watch and this should be a very exciting match for fans of both sides to watch.
